The Pelicans big man has developed a reputation for his emotional outbursts on the court and he's already picked up seven technical fouls in the first 24 games of this season. Durant and Cousins have history, albeit fairly ancient-they went head-to-head in 2015-16, when Durant was still with the Thunder and Cousins a member of the Sacramento Kings.

After the Warriors' forward entered the lane, he made contact with Cousins under the hoop on a drive that he thought should have resulted in a pair of free throw attempts. "It's just one of those unfortunate things and we continue to talk about it and try to manage it the best we can".

Kerr after Monday's game said his team needs to maintain its composure and not get reactionary to adverse situations. I got to be more poised. I can't let anybody take me off my game. Durant is doing too much to show the league, he isn't a cupcake and a softy.

It's possible Durant and Cousins could be assessed $25,000 fines for failing to leave the court in a timely manner, but we'll have to wait and see what the league chooses to do. "We know that he plays that way, so I can't get involved with that - that's just who he is, I've got to be me". "That's who he is, I got to be me".

Additionally, Durant told reporters he has no interest in fighting Cousins or anyone else.

"I'm not going to fight nobody".

Curry, who also exited late in the fourth quarter after rolling his ankle, which later required an X-ray following Monday's game, finished with his fourth double-double this season with 31 points and 11 assists.

"Obviously, you get a little concerned about it because at a certain number then the suspensions start", Gentry said. "I love making money for my family, so I'm not trying to get suspended".

The Finals MVP knows his flaws, but he'll have to act on correcting them to establish himself as a responsible starter under Steve Kerr and not give this team another wild lion that can run rampant at a moment's notice.
