In the matter of 20 seconds, Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverley received two double technicals for getting into it, subsequently getting ejected from Game 1 of the Warriors-Clippers first-round series.

The first double technicals were called when the duo got into it as KD looked to complete a fastbreak and got fouled.

A couple of possessions later, the reigning two-time Finals MVP picked up Beverley at halfcourt as he was bringing the ball and things got chippy.

In the post-game interview, here's what Steve Kerr had to say about the ejections:

This was Durant's second career postseason ejection, whereas, it's Beverley's third.

Both these teams face off in Game 2 at the Oracle Arena on Tuesday at 8 AM on Sony ESPN.
