Warriors’ Kevin Durant passes Dirk Nowitzki on National Basketball Association playoffs scoring list

Warriors’ Kevin Durant passes Dirk Nowitzki on National Basketball Association playoffs scoring list

In the fourth quarter, Kevin Durant of the Warriors and Patrick Beverley of the Clippers were ejected after receiving a second pair of double technical fouls for a continuous stream of back-and-forth jawing. That's two technicals. You get seven technicals. 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. I thought there could be a chance that the Warriors allow the Clippers to hang around, but they came out with the right intensity and took care of business despite all the player ejections. So he's got four to play with after one game. "We talked about it the last couple of days. He plays hard. Got a lot of respect for him". "It was fun out there", Beverley said. As a team, the Clippers shot just 40 percent from the field as their starters struggled right from the tipoff as they allowed the Warriors to take control of the game with 69 points in the first half which had them trailing the rest of the way.

Throughout the game, Durant and Beverley seemed to have each other's attention.

But are we sure we know all the people in that shot? But just in case you needed further proof of that, we've got just the thing. And in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame , we might just be seeing all this tense history come to a head.

Curry shot 8 for 12 from deep to pass Ray Allen (385) for career postseason 3s with 386, had a postseason career-high 15 rebounds, seven assists and the 31st 30-point postseason performance of his career.

As for the actual basketball, two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry scored 38 points and made eight 3-pointers to give him the most in postseason history to lead the two-time defending-champion Warriors. The Warriors have won seven straight postseason Game 1s and 14 of 15 openers in all - going 16-1 in their first game of a series dating to the 2014-15 season.
