The Sports Report: Clippers fall to Warriors

Beverley, who was in Durant's face from the opening tip in an attempt to knock the two-time NBA Finals Most Valuable Player off his game, explained what went down before the ejections.

The two ended up getting into a minor scuffle after it appeared that Durant fouled Beverley. Whether you play four playoff games or 24, seven is the magic number.

Durant had words of praise for Beverley after the game.

"If you lose it's not the end of the world", Kerr said. "[Durant] took the bait, and that's two technicals".

"We had to delay our film session so we could watch the last couple of holes", Kerr said, via The Mercury News. I have a lot of respect for him.

For his part, Clippers coach Doc Rivers was less than pleased with the officiating in the opener.

The duo went off to combine for 51 points (26 and 25 points, respectively) and became the first bench combination to each score at least 25 points in the playoffs in National Basketball Association history.

Rookie point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had an impressive playoffs debut, scoring 18 points and logging five rebounds and three blocks.

Durant finished with 23 points, four rebounds, three assists, and three rejections in 32 minutes of action for the Warriors, while Beverley contributed just three points on 1-of-6 shooting and was a team-worst minus-24 for Los Angeles.

On a night when Stephen Curry passed Ray Allen for all-time 3-point makes in the NBA Playoffs, Kevin Durant passed Dirk Nowitzki in a separate category.

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