With Steph passing Allen and now Kevin Durant moving past Dirk in separate National Basketball Association postseason record books, the symbolism of the Warriors continuing to play - while Dirk and D-Wade ride into the sunset - is potent and not lost on anyone. That's two technicals. You get seven technicals. "We competed. I really wish we could've played more without the chippy calls, but I understand it's Game 1 and they're trying to set the tone". The first, which came with five minutes left in the fourth quarter, involved a friendly back-and-forth. So he's got four to play with after one game. "We talked about it for the last couple of days". The two players were jawing at each the whole way through, whenever they were checked into the game by their coaches - Beverley playing for 31 minutes in a losing effort, Durant one better, at 32. He's a helluva defender, he plays hard, we've got a lot of respect for him - but you can not take the bait because that's a bad trade for us.

Beverley seemed to be upset that he didn't get a foul call as he went to the rack for shot just before time ran out to end the second quarter. "That's what Beverley does", Kerr said.

Expect tempers to flare again when the Warriors host the Clippers in Game 2 at 10:30 p.m. ET Monday. He's a hell of a defender who plays hard.

I like when they express what they believe. "For 20 months, we've been winning every three days; an incredible amount of games". We didn't want to concede a counter-attack, where they are stronger than us.


With his 8th three-pointer made in Game 1 in their series against the Los Angeles Clippers, Curry passed Ray Allen with his 386th postseason make.

Warriors: Curry notched his fifth career double-digit postseason rebounding game. 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.
