In the wake of the Warriors’ 125-115 win Monday night over the Pelicans, Golden State head coach Steve Kerr took issue with his team’s repeated emotional outbursts. “It’s absolutely too much,” Kerr said. “We’re not composed out there. We’re a championship team. We have to be poised, and we have to execute out there. We’re getting way too emotional, myself included. “I’ve got to do a better job of that, too. 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.” Golden State let its emotions get the best of it numerous times Monday. Upset over a non-call on a dunk attempt in the first quarter, Draymond Green unloaded a verbal tirade on referee Derrick Stafford and was assessed a technical. Nearly a minute later, after getting called for a foul, Kevin Durant picked up a technical for jawing with an official. With little more than a minute left in the game, Durant and New Orleans center DeMarcus Cousins were ejected for an on-court confrontation in which they traded words and needed to be separated.
