Kevin Durant Dismisses Patrick Beverley Beef: "Y'all Know Who I Am"

The best-of-seven set is now tied at 1-1, and L.A. has some life with the teams headed to Staples Center.

An MRI on Tuesday morning confirmed the tear, according to the Warriors, who said it would provide updates on Cousins "as appropriate". The short answer is no, and the Warriors should still cruise to the second round.

While the Golden State Warriors are heavy favorites against the Los Angeles Clippers, things haven't exactly been easy.

Practice makes flawless, and for 82 regular season games, the Warriors practiced apathy against inferior opponents.

In a way, Monday's result shouldn't be all that surprising.

Bogut described how the Warriors got too comfortable, which the Clippers took advantage of.

Time is right for GM to bring back Tiger Woods
I really couldn't so much of anything. "Luckily I've had the procedure where that's no longer the case and I can do this again". Open by 15 strokes (a record for a major championship), finishing as the only golfer below par and becoming the first U.S.


And with each preposterous 3-pointer Curry made (he was 8-for-12 from beyond the arc) and every subsequent and deserved M-V-P chant from the Oracle Arena crowd, you could see a bit more of the Clippers' spirit break.

Patrick Beverley plays stellar defense. When Draymond Green is giving his all defensively, you could argue that he's a better all-around player than anyone wearing a Los Angeles uniform. Steph's 29 points and KD's 21 did not make any difference, nor did another poor shooting performance from Klay.

In the final six games of the regular season, Durant averaged only 16.5 points per game. ESPN analyst and former National Basketball Association guard Jalen Rose warned Durant not to continue "beefing" with Beverley.

On the flip side, when Durant creates space from Beverley by using a forearm or shoulder a few times a game, the officials have called an offensive foul which has further frustrated Durant. It's the playoffs. He can get any shot he wants any time.

The next matchup in the five-game Warriors-Clippers series will be on April 15 at 10:30 p.m. ET; fans can tune in on TNT. The Clippers were great. His shooting is going to remain a major problem for Los Angeles. Curry finished the game with 386 career threes.

The first of the three Game 3s tips off in Brooklyn where the sixth-seeded Nets host the Philadelphia 76ers after each team won once in Philly. Now they not only have the incentive to come out from the opening tip to play well but now they also need to win one or two back in LA to take back command.
