Curry’s 38 points lead Warriors to Game 1 win over Clippers

Durant was reaching in when Beverley was bringing the ball up past halfcourt during the fourth quarter at Oracle Arena. The two players were jawing at each the whole way through, whenever they were checked into the game by their coaches - Beverley playing for 31 minutes in a losing effort, Durant one better, at 32. Beverley sprung up and got in KD's face immediately.

Stephen Curry reached a few 3-point milestones during the NBA's regular season, finishing the year with the 3rd most makes in the history of the National Basketball Association.

Curry entered the game seven 3-pointers behind Allen, but the two-time NBA MVP topped Allen in the third quarter, when he sank his eighth 3-pointer of the game, giving him 386 postseason treys. Montrezl Harrell led the team in scoring with 26 points on 11 of 15 shooting off the bench, Lou Williams added 25 points and nine assists while Shai Gilgeous-Alexander chipped in with 18 points.

These teams are meeting for just the second time in the postseason after the Clippers took a seven-game series in the first round in 2014 when the California franchises had a deep dislike for each other.

From the opening tip, the Clippers were going to be physical and not back down from the Warriors. "[Durant] took the bait, and that's two technicals. That's what Beverley does", Kerr said.

"They played hard, but again, we're talking about 48 minutes and imposing our will and that's what we did", Curry said of the Clippers, who returned to the playoffs after missing last season following 6 straight appearances. I thought there could be a chance that the Warriors allow the Clippers to hang around, but they came out with the right intensity and took care of business despite all the player ejections. "I give them a lot of credit".
