Kevin Durant, Patrick Beverley ejected in Warriors' win

Tempers flared in the game as Warriors star Kevin Durant and Clippers' Patrick Beverley got ejected with 4:41 minutes left in the game after figuring in an altercation.

But less than 20 seconds later, the two squared off again. I thought there could be a chance that the Warriors allow the Clippers to hang around, but they came out with the right intensity and took care of business despite all the player ejections.

"I've been playing against Pat Beverly since he was at Arkansas, so I kind of know what he brings", Durant said minutes later in the postgame press conference. "Those dudes play with a different type of grit, so I can appreciate that about Pat".

That mentality is best epitomized by Patrick Beverley, their veteran guard who was put on earth to annoy other humans who play basketball. "But you cannot take the bait because, that's a bad trade for us".

"We took the bait". You get seven technicals, your seventh one is a suspension in the playoffs.

While the Golden State Warriors did as expected in Game 1 of their first-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night at Oracle Arena, 121-104, it was also fight night. "He's got four to play with after one game".

"That's what Beverley does". "We talked about it for the last couple of days". He's a helluva defender, he plays hard, we've got a lot of respect for him - but you can not take the bait because that's a bad trade for us. The Clippers have made a lot of good trades this year. I can't see anything but another win for the Warriors, but this just seems like too many free points on this occasion. "It was fun out there", Beverley said. But this is the playoffs.

We saw this one coming. As a team, the Clippers shot just 40 percent from the field as their starters struggled right from the tipoff as they allowed the Warriors to take control of the game with 69 points in the first half which had them trailing the rest of the way.
