Kevin Durant & DeMarcus Cousins Ejected After On-Court Altercation

DeMarcus Cousins explodes for 38 points on Saturday WATCH: Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins both tossed

The Warriors play next on Wednesday night against the Charlotte Hornets, while the Pelicans play on the same night against the Denver Nuggets. Immediately after a New Orleans layup, the fourth-year head coach called a timeout and walked out to the floor with his face red, and his hands on his hips in disbelief.

The Golden State Warriors have had a number of emotional outbursts during their current road trip.

Cousins has always been a magnet for technical fouls, but at that moment of the game both he and Durant should have been smarter about this.

"It's absolutely too much", Kerr said. We said what we had to say and just moved on. It's hard to blame Kerr for feeling that way, too.

First, Kevin Durant was ejected along with DeMarcus Cousins for jawing and jostling. Things had been brewing between the two throughout the entire game. As the Warriors continue to pile up wins, they've also had issues of late (and this season) collecting technical fouls, too.

At the end of the third quarter, Golden State had trimmed a 20-point deficit to just three, and appeared poised to cut down the branch keeping the Pelicans in front.

The Warriors almost erased their entire halftime deficit in the third quarter, outscoring New Orleans 39-22 to trail just 91-88 entering the fourth quarter.

During the Warriors' 125-115 win over the Pelicans last night at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Durant managed to go 8-of-21 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line in 35 minutes, scoring 19 points with seven rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block, one 3-pointer and six turnovers. On Sunday, Shaun Livingston was ejected after making contact with a referee (he and the official, Courtney Kirkland, received suspensions on Monday).

McCaw suffered his injury on a dunk attempt that was swatted away by Cousins, who turned McCaw away after the Warriors' guard thought he had a clear path to the hoop. Every time I get ejected I make sure it's late in the game.
