Warriors make history with another big comeback win after halftime

Warriors make history with another big comeback win after halftime

But New Orleans (12-12) showed a super version of itself in Monday's opening half against the Warriors, who completed a two-day back-to-back Monday amid a six-game road trip, their longest this season.

On Monday night, the Warriors were down in New Orleans to take on the Pelicans, when Durant & Pelicans' PF Demarcus Cousins got into an on-court altercation, resulting in a double ejection for both players. On Sunday, Shaun Livingston was ejected after making contact with a referee (he and the official, Courtney Kirkland, received suspensions on Monday).

Kerr's third quarter timeout came just a few minutes after he told Warriors' sideline reporter Kerith Burke, "We f-ing sucked", en route to the locker room at halftime. Kirkland was suspended by the league for a week for his role in the incident, which led to the two bumping foreheads. "We got in each other's faces, but that's just how it is, you know what I'm saying?" Since both Durant and Cousins had already received technical fouls earlier in the game, they were ejected.

The Advocate also confirmed extra security was brought in to keep Cousins and Durant apart after the game. But things reached a boiling point in the fourth quarter when Cousins almost head butted Durant to get things really started. We've got to be poised and we've got to execute.

The Pelicans failed to recover after the blistering Warriors run as Golden State put away the home team with some clutch free throws down the stretch. Yet Durant assured that he wouldn't allow to get his emotions get the best of him at a critical time in the game. Durant has had three in the past 18 games, one more than he had in his previous 810. "I don't want to get injured. We know that he plays that way, so I can't get involved with that - that's just who he is, I've got to be me". For anyone keeping count, this is the second time in three days that Durant has been ejected. The officials apparently had enough of their back-and-forth and chose to eject both of them. "We're getting way too emotional".
