Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant and New Orleans Pelicans big man DeMarcus Cousins both earned early exits from Monday's game at Smoothie King Center.

With 1:14 remaining in the contest, play was stopped after Pelicans guard Rajon Rondo was whistled for a foul.

Durant and Cousins got into an argument before Golden State's Stephen Curry could step to the charity stripe, and the referee wasted no time in ejecting the two.

The situation continued following the referee's decision, and the agitated players had to be restrained until they walked to their locker rooms.

Golden State defeated New Orleans 125-115 after trailing by 20 at halftime.

It appears Durant and Cousins won't be sending Christmas cards to each other this month.
