Durant, Beverley ejected after constant trash talk

The Warriors were certainly in control and Stephen Curry's volcanic eruption threatened to break things open at any moment but the Clippers never backed down at all.

Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors has words with Patrick Beverley #21 of the LA Clippers during Game One of the first round of the 2019 NBA Western Conference Playoffs at ORACLE Arena on April 13, 2019 in Oakland, California.

"That's pretty special,"said Curry". After trash talking for almost the entire game, both Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverly were ejected in the fourth quarter of Saturday's Western Conference first-round opener.

Curry now has 286 (and counting) made 3-pointers in the playoffs, surpassing Ray Allen while taking 80 less games to do so.

The reigning Finals MVP finished with 23 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 blocks.

"They played hard, but again, we're talking about 48 minutes and imposing our will and that's what we did", Curry said of the Clippers, who returned to the playoffs after missing last season following 6 straight appearances.

Montrezl Harrell led the Clippers with 26 points, five rebounds and two assists off the bench. "It does set a good tone but the beauty of the National Basketball Association playoffs is it's a seven-game series".
