Kevin Durant Ejected After Dust-Up With Boogie Cousins

Kevin Durant Ejected After Dust-Up With Boogie Cousins

After sitting out the previous two games with a sore knee, Iguodala's presence was a welcome addition to a Golden State lineup that lost backup point guard Shaun Livingston to a one-game suspension on Monday afternoon and reserve shooting guard Patrick McCaw to a nose injury midway through the second quarter.

It's unclear what was said here, but Durant thought the officials gave he and Cousins a premature hook.

The 29-year-old was tossed for the first time this season in the Warriors' loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on October 21, a game in which Stephen Curry was also ejected.

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. "We're not composed out there", he told Mercurynews.com.

Cousins said after Tuesday's practice that he tries to avoid being confrontational when teams push his buttons, but he'll have to do a better job going forward. "We got to be poised and we got to execute out there". We're just talking, we're just getting into it. So I'm not trying to get suspended, I'm not trying to get in no fights with nobody.

"We've got to show some poise when things aren't going our way and stop worrying about everything else and just worry about the game".

The Cougars will play Michigan State at 6 p.m. on December 28 at San Diego Credit Union Stadium, formerly known as Qualcomm. Last season WSU fell to Minnesota in the Holiday Bowl after defeating Miami in the 2015 Sun Bowl.

Overall, the Warriors have had six ejections this season.

The Warriors have had a player ejected in each of the last three games. "Every time I get ejected, I make sure it's late in the game", Durant said.

The Warriors (19-6) trailed by as many as 21 points late in the second quarter and by 20 at halftime.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said that he's talked to Cousins about his technical fouls and the team will do everything it can to make sure the star big man stays on the court.

"But I've got to be more poised". Especially somebody like Cousins. "I think it was the right decision, and we move on. That's just who he is, I gotta be me".
