DeMarcus Cousins on altercation with Kevin Durant: 'It sucks it happened'

Adjust Comment Print

Durant and Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins were ejected with 1:14 left for a shouting match with each other.

Durant said after the game that he needs to do a better job of keeping his cool, as he has now been ejected three times in his past 18 games.

However, that apparently wasn't the end of the beef between Durant and Cousins, as a report indicates that security had to step in to separate the two big men and prevent a potential altercation off the floor.

The cost of the victory could be critical for Golden State moving forward, as Kerr didn't have much to smile about even though his team improved to 4-0 since leaving Oracle Arena. "It's a heated matchup, it's a heated conversation, and we said what we had to say and moved on".

After the Warriors' forward entered the lane, he made contact with Cousins under the hoop on a drive that he thought should have resulted in a pair of free throw attempts.

According to the EU, the tax deal allowed Apple to pay nearly nothing in tax on its European profits between 2003 and 2014. Both Apple and Ireland will still appeal the ruling despite Apple agreeing to make a payment.

"Every time I get ejected, I make sure it's late in the game", Durant told reporters after the game, according to the Athletic. "We got in each other's faces, but that's just how it is, you know what I'm saying? We're getting way too emotional". Last night brought us the latest incident, in which Durant got into it with Boogie Cousins during the final minutes of the game, earning himself a second tech and an ejection.

"I've been in the league for too long, especially with somebody like Cousins, we know that he's feisty, we know that he's emotional". "I don't want to get suspended". "I'm not going to fight nobody", Durant said.

Curry, who also exited late in the fourth quarter after rolling his ankle, which later required an X-ray following Monday's game, finished with his fourth double-double this season with 31 points and 11 assists. I don't want to get suspended.

It wasn't immediately clear what had caused the confrontation, which came as the Warriors led by eight points-although the Pelicans' collapse may have had something to do with it.
