Andrew Bogut had a great game Thursday night in Los Angeles.

Scratch that: Andrew Bogut had a terrific game.

In the Warriors' 132-105 win over the Clippers in Game 3 of their NBA playoff series, the 34-year old recorded eight points, 14 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block. In 25 minutes, he was plus-24.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 draft was instrumental in getting Kevin Durant off to a hot start:

Bogut led the Dubs with four "screen assists," according to NBA.com.

The 2015 All-Defensive selection also made a signifcant impact on the defensive end:

Klay Thompson was cold to start the game. He missed his first four shots.

Bogut helped change that, though, a couple minutes into the second quarter:

After practice Wednesday, coach Steve Kerr said the Warriors are lucky to have Bogut. On Thursday, you saw exactly why.

In Thursday night's Game 3, the Warriors led the Clippers 73-52 at halftime.

When he walked off the court after the first 24 minutes, Kevin Durant had scored 27 points (10-of-15 shooting) and dished out four assists.

Before the third quarter started, former Warriors forward Matt Barnes took to Twitter to let his feelings be known.

This tweet receives a 10 out of 10.

Barnes, of course, is referring to Durant's former teammate, Russell Westbrook, who went 5 of 20 from the field in Oklahoma City's Game 2 loss in Portland on Tuesday night.

Durant received a lot of backlash from the media for how he handled facing Patrick Beverley in the first two games of the NBA playoff series (mostly Game 2).

Warriors coach Steve Kerr even told reporters that he wanted to see a much more aggressive KD in Game 3.

With his 38-point outbust, the reigning two-time NBA Finals MVP gave everybody what they were looking for.

Well, it didn't take long for Kevin Durant to have his wish granted.

The technical foul that he received during the Warriors' Game 3 win over the Clippers has been rescinded, the NBA announced Friday morning.

From the moment referee Jason Phillips blew the whistle, it was widely speculated that the league office would come to this decision.

It was an egregious tech.

“We were conversing about the play before, and then someone came out of nowhere and tech’d us both," Durant explained to the media after the game. "Hopefully it gets rescinded."

Durant officially has been assessed two technicals in the playoffs, and would receive a one-game suspension if he gets a seventh.

Also, KD had a decent game Thursday night:
