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

Skip Bayless Warriors

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.

Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is set Monday.

Durant and Beverley were ejected from the game after they each received their second technical foul late in the fourth quarter. So he's got four to play with after one game.

Kevin Durant climbing past Nowitzki and Steph rising above Jesus Shuttlesworth on the same night underscores the extent to which the Warriors have rewritten the record books and left an enduring imprint on the postseason story of professional basketball.

"We took the bait". "We talked about it for the last couple of days. But you cannot take the bait because, that's a bad trade for us". "That's what Beverley does", Kerr said.

As for the play that got them tossed, Durant seemed surprised both players earned an ejection.

When asked afterward if he was intentionally trying to egg on the four-time scoring champion, Beverley said he was just being himself. He took the bait. "Your seventh one is a suspension in the playoffs", Kerr said. "But it was the same play for me coming back on the other end, where I had an opportunity to bring some intensity to the arena, to the game, to my team, and I thought it was a ideal time for me to do so, without resulting in a technical foul". 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.
