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

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

Stephen Curry sizzled with 38 points - spiced up by 8 three-pointers that gave him the record for highest total triples made in National Basketball Association playoffs history - as the Golden State Warriors rolled past the Los Angeles Clippers, 121-104, in Game 1 of their Western Conference series on Saturday, April 13 (Sunday, April 14, Manila time). Durant went up for a dunk and got fouled, but as he was coming down, Beverley flew through the air and grabbed his arm, leading to some jawing and double technicals. Durant high-fived fans as he exited and the home crowd went into chants of "Beat L.A.!" Durant (3,679) passed Dirk Nowitzki (3,663) for 15th place on the career playoff scoring list. It looked like Golden State had wrapped things up, but Beverley and Durant kept going at one another. Durant stood over him and when Beverly popped up to get in Durant's face, Ed Malloy sent both players to their respective locker rooms.

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.

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

The final 17-point margin in the Warriors' Game 1 win doesn't do justice to how competitive the game was.
