With 8:23 remaining in the third quarter on Wednesday night, things got pretty intense between the Warriors and Rockets.
Golden State led 72-49 and had possession of the basketball.
As Harrison Barnes looked to enter the ball in the frontcourt, Patrick Beverley got pretty physical with Stephen Curry, who was trying to get open.
Curry "gently shoved" Beverley and was assessed a technical foul.
"I got a tech for nothing," Curry said following the 126-113 win. "Just trying to walk to my spot and got held up. Obviously, I reacted, but that's the softest tech I've ever gotten and I don't have many of 'em.
"I was a little frustrated with that and that next play, but if that's how they wanna try to get back into the game, it didn't work ... We answered that physicality, which is playing our brand of basketball, and showing it on the court."
After James Harden made the technical free throw, Curry was called for setting an illegal screen on Trevor Ariza. As Ariza ran to the other end of the floor, he bumped a startled Curry, who immediately turned and ran after the Rockets' small forward.
Draymond Green was near the action and grabbed Curry before he could get in Ariza's face.
The referees stopped action, and after a lengthy review, issued Ariza a technical foul.
Curry made the subsequent free throw.
What was he planning on doing by running after Ariza?
"Throw a haymaker and knock him out and get kicked out of the league," Curry joked. "No, I don't know what I was gonna do. No idea ... Yeah, I thought it was a cheap shot. I don't know if he meant to do it or not, but that's how I felt in the moment, and I wanted to tell him...
"Right now, the way we are playing, we can't get sucked into that drama on the court, because it takes away from what we're doing."
What did Steve Kerr think of the whole situation?
"I didn't see it," Kerr answered. "I'm gonna have to see the replay so it's tough to comment on it. But we were rolling at the time and that's what happens if you're really playing well -- teams are gonna try to get a little physical with you, especially with our team because we're a skilled team. That's to be expected.
"The game is gonna get more physical and we have to be able to play through that ... I thought Steph did a good job of handling that and playing through it after that little incident.
"It was a good response. Any time something like that happens, you have to respond with your play. You just have to respond with execution and defense and I thought that's what we did."
What about you, Andrew Bogut?
"It doesn't bother us," the Warriors' center declared. "We expected that. We knew the game was gonna get out of hand at some point because we had a big lead ... we kind of expected something to happen. We're gonna get that a little bit. When you win games and you're good, teams are gonna try to do things to take you out of your rhythm and try to junk the game up."
With the win, the Warriors improved to an NBA-best 34-6 and set a franchise record with their 17th straight home victory.
As a result, Steve Kerr and his staff will coach the Western Conference All-Star team.
