Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins Ejected Amid Testy Warriors-Pelicans Tussle

Adjust Comment Print

Last night was the latest in a string of them this season for the Warriors, when star Kevin Durant and New Orleans Pelicans big man DeMarcus Cousins got ejected for a scuffle in the fourth quarter. "We got in each other's faces, but that's just how it is, you know what I'm saying?"

It doesn't sound like the altercation ended there, though.

And Draymond Green broke it up, obviously. He reported that security had to close a couple doors to keep Cousins and Durant separated. Durant earned his third ejection in his last 18 games.

"I've just got to keep doing what I'm trying to do, which is the right thing on a nightly basis", Cousins said.

"I thought he threw us out pretty quick, to be honest. I got to be me". "I can't let anybody take me off my game".

Wojcicki says YouTube will also use technology to flag "problematic" videos or comments that show hate speech or harm to children. On December 4, Alphabet-owned YouTube announced to expand its team of reviewers to manage extremist, violent content by 2018.

"I've got to do a better job of that, too". We're getting way too emotional, myself included.

Cousins' reputation is in no way helping, and his trash-talking style of play is bound to get him into more trouble than he likely deserves, but it's ultimately up to him to become less of a liability to get in trouble with the officials and help his team in the midst of the absence of Anthony Davis. Everytime I got ejected, I made sure it's late in the game.

Additionally, Durant told reporters he has no interest in fighting Cousins or anyone else. With Stephen Curry out due to an ankle injury going into Wednesday's game against the Charlotte Hornets, Durant has to shoulder the weight of the team's success. "It's late in the game". I don't want to get suspended. I love making money for my family.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr admitted that the defending world champions are showing a lack of composure. He was tossed from Friday night's win against the Orlando Magic after yelling at a referee following a non-foul call.
