Watch Kevin Durant, Patrick Beverley get ejected from Warriors-Clippers Game 1

Durant, Beverley tossed; Curry, Warriors take Game 1

Andrew Bogut comes to the fore in 'devastating' NBA Playoffs moment

In the Golden State Warriors' 121-104 Game 1 win over the LA Clippers, Stephen Curry exploded for 38 points, 15 rebounds and seven assists.

It's when they put both Steph Curry and Kevin Durant on the bench together, deploying a hodgepodge unit - Quinn Cook, Shaun Livingston, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala and DeMarcus Cousins - that, this season, played only 39 minutes together and produced only a very average plus-2. They had received their first technicals 19 seconds earlier over a previous incident in which Durant and Beverley were jawing at each other.

Beverley repeatedly attempted to rattle Durant throughout the contest, which included mimicking the forward's movements by mockingly flailing his arms after a foul call. The two were issued double second technicals, having both been issued their first technicals just moments before.

Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are down. It’s not just you
At the time of writing, Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram representatives are yet to acknowledge the outage on Twitter. Denied access to these social media sites, thousands of people have taken to Twitter to complain about the outage.

"I'm going to keep that to myself", he said.

Here's just a taste of what went on all game. That's what he brings to each team he plays on. That's his identity, and they support him with the Clippers. "I thought it was fun tonight". Players receive an automatic one-game suspension upon receiving their seventh technical in the playoffs, so Durant already is way ahead of that pace after only one game.
