Or push night, at least.

Stephen Curry lights up the series opener as the defending champion Warriors frustrate the Clippers.

With 4:41 to play, the two got tangled up, with Durant pushing Beverley into the scorer's table. Durant stood over him and when Beverly popped up to get in Durant's face, Ed Malloy sent both players to their respective locker rooms.

Durant and Beverley were ejected from the game after they each received their second technical foul late in the fourth quarter. Durant laughed at Beverley's taunts. Durant went on to be the No. 2 overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, and Beverley was taken by the Lakers two years later in the second round, working his way into the NBA playing overseas, with brief stints in Greece, Ukraine and Russian Federation before catching on with the Houston Rockets midway through the 2012-13 season.

Throughout the game, Durant and Beverley seemed to have each other's attention. "He's got four to play with".

"We took the bait. It was fun out there", Beverley said. We talked about it for the last couple days.

Cousins, who played his first game of the season January 18 at the Clippers, had nine rebounds and four assists. I have a lot of respect for him.

"He took the bait", Kerr said. He finished 11 of 16 from the field (9 of 11 after the first) and a ridiculous 8 of 12 from 3-point range that allowed him to pass Ray Allen for the all-time lead in made playoff 3s while also tying for the team lead in assists with seven.

Draymond Green got Golden State going by making all five of his shots in the first quarter en route to 17 points to go with seven assists and seven rebounds, while Durant scored 23 points as the Warriors ran their postseason winning streak to seven games.

Montrezl Harrell led the Clippers with 26 points, five rebounds and two assists off the bench.

Beverley, who missed last Sunday's 131-104 loss at Oracle because of a right hip pointer and was booed during pregame introductions, didn't score in the first half and wound up with three points on 1-for-7 shooting, seven assists and seven rebounds.
