Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins both tossed

WATCH: Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins both tossed

THE Golden State Warriors averted disaster after clawing back from 21 points down to beat an Anthony Davis-less New Orleans Pelicans team, 125-116, on Monday (Tuesday, Manila time) at the Smoothie King Center. We're a championship team.

"I got to be more focused, I got to be more poised", he said.

Klay Thompson had 22 points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal on 8-of-13 shooting from the field, 4-of-5 shooting from long range and 2-of-3 shooting from behind the arc, while Kevin Durant tallied 19 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block before being ejected due to an altercation with DeMarcus Cousins.

The Advocate also confirmed extra security was brought in to keep Cousins and Durant apart after the game. But this escalated when, when the ball was dead, Durant walked over and started jawing at Cousins (Draymond Green was the guy with the level head getting between them). Every time I get ejected I make sure it's late in the game.

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.

It's possible Durant and Cousins could be assessed $25,000 fines for failing to leave the court in a timely manner, but we'll have to wait and see what the league chooses to do. Last night brought us the latest incident, in which Durant got into it with Boogie Cousins during the final minutes of the game, earning himself a second tech and an ejection. Durant has had three in the past 18 games, one more than he had in his previous 810. We're just talking, we're just getting into it. We got to be poised and we got to execute out there. "But we've got to show some poise when things aren't going our way, stop worrying about everything else and just worry about the game".

With Davis (groin, day-to-day) out, the Pelicans stunned the Warriors early and led by as much as 21, 68-48, in the closing seconds of the first half.
