Steve Kerr ejected in Warriors' 4th quarter implosion vs. Blazers | NBA Highlights

The Blazers ended the game on a 31-8 run to win 129-107. Steph Curry and Kevin Durant each scored 32 in the loss.

What could make Klay Thompson, traditionally such an even-keel, calm player, so angry?

He was immediately hit with two technical fouls and ejected.

Kerr reacted angrily, slamming his clipboard down and yelling at referee Ken Mauer before he was ejected. Blazers star Damian Lillard made all three of his technical free-throw attempts and Collins made his two attempts from the charity stripe to give the Blazers a 115-103 advantage. Kerr said before the game that Cousins and Livingston got the night off because of the back-to-back games, and Iguodala was additionally a "little banged up".

The Warriors started Kevon Looney in Cousins' place. The New York Knicks, who made a decision to focus on younger players, were unable to deal Kanter before the trade deadline and waived him instead.

Added coach Terry Stotts: "Zach's plays, I thought, were a turning point". Kanter will back up starter Jusuf Nurkic.

Portland led 110-103 before Green was called for an elbow to the face of Collins with just under 4 minutes left. He received a standing ovation when he entered the game late in the first quarter.

The combined value of the non-compete clause and the 2015 shares was estimated at 10 million euros. It was unclear why Ohtsuru was no longer representing Ghosn or if Ghosn had dismissed him.

Nearing the All-Star break, Green has accumulated 12 technical fouls on the year.

Warriors: Kerr said before the game the team would rely on its bench with three key players missing. It also opened up minutes for the likes of Alfonzo McKinnie, Damion Lee, Jonas Jerebko and Jordan Bell. "He deserves some action". I'm going to go out there and play as hard as I can, help 'em win. "He's got his OR shoes on tonight, representing the Ducks".

That's quite the praise for a player who finished with four points, five rebounds and three blocks, but it was true.

Portland fans are going to like Kanter.

Kiki VanDeWeghe, the NBA's executive vice president of basketball operations, announced the fine Thursday. "He's an impact player with playoff experience that will be an excellent fit with our style of play".

The Warriors next game will be at home on February 22, as they host the Sacramento Kings at the Oracle Arena.

The Blazers visit the Brooklyn Nets on February 21.
