The first component may be a part of their collective makeup, combined with three successive extended seasons.

On Monday, Draymond Green was almost ejected following a verbal tirade on referee Derrick Stafford. Kevin Durant was also assessed a technical foul early in the game. I don't want to get injured. "I know I have a reputation in this league, and I know I'll never get the benefit of the doubt, so I've just got to keep trying to do the right thing". "I can't let anyone take me off my game". "I'm not messing up like that in the first, second quarter".

This is the second time in as many games that the Warriors have had a player ejected for one reason or another. Durant was ejected from Friday's win over Orlando for calling a referee a not-safe-for-work name.

What became a bit of a concern for the Warriors last season has become a glaring issue seven weeks into this one.

Kerr said composure will be a further topic of discussion for his team this week.

Which is, rather, how the Warriors are starting to look.

It wasn't immediately clear what had caused the confrontation, which came as the Warriors led by eight points-although the Pelicans' collapse may have had something to do with it.

"We're not composed out there", Kerr said.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said that he's talked to Cousins about his technical fouls and the team will do everything it can to make sure the star big man stays on the court. "We've got to be poised and we've got to execute". The Warriors we getting absolutely clobbered the entire night. Get the app and get the game.

Cousins now leads the National Basketball Association with seven technical fouls; Green is in second with six. Durant was ejected against the Pelicans for the third time this season. Green ranks 24th in being whistled for common fouls and is the only Warrior in the top 40.

Warriors emotional leader Green knows his team will stick together no matter what happens.

Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins were ejected in the fourth quarter last night. Durant expressed some regret and explained his point of view. I love to play. "I try to go out my way to do things the right way and I felt most of it was instigated from the other end. That's who he is, I got to be me". "Maybe I should have".
