Durant Ejected for First Time in Thunder Loss
The most frustrating night of Thunder basketball this season came complete with the first ejection of Kevin Durant’s career.
You read that right. Kevin Durant got ejected.
The loss was the Thunder’s worst defeat at home since suffering a 21-point drubbing at the hands of Utah on Halloween 2010. The Nets also snapped the Thunder’s league-best 12-game home winning streak and dropped OKC to 24-7 one day after it had regained the league’s best record.
“I said it was a bad call,” Durant said when asked what he said to get tossed. “They got a quick trigger now on techs.
“I think I’m allowed to be frustrated, especially in this league (that’s) full of ups and downs. Players are allowed to be frustrated. It is what it is. (I’ll) move on from it.”
