Durant didn't step down and said some things back to Beverley. They both became enraged again and official Ed Malloy immediately sent them both to the locker room. He led Golden State with a team-high 38 points and 15 rebounds.

Perhaps this old, heated rivalry still has all the testiness of years past - just with new faces all around.

Game 2 is Monday night back at Oracle Arena. "It does set a good tone but the beauty of the National Basketball Association playoffs is it's a seven-game series".

Tempers flared in the game as Warriors star Kevin Durant and Clippers' Patrick Beverley got ejected with 4:41 minutes left in the game after figuring in an altercation.

The reserves stepped up for the Clippers with Montrezl Harrell leading with 26 points and Lou Williams tallying 25 points and 9 assists.

The first double technicals were called when the duo got into it as KD looked to complete a fastbreak and got fouled.

The Clippers lost their cool on a couple of occasions, and that hurt playing in an already hard road arena.

Curry finished with eight 3-pointers in the Warriors' 121-104 win over the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 1 of the first round on Saturday.
