Durant Gets First Flagrant Foul of Career
Oklahoma City lost its composure early and never seemed to regain it. Center Kendrick Perkins seemed to want to be more of a tough guy than a basketball player on Tuesday. He was whistled for a technical foul for something he said to one of the officials early in the game. He later got a flagrant one for a foul on Jefferson. Perhaps most surprising was the antics of (Kevin) Durant, who was whistled for the first flagrant foul of his career for a hard foul on (Alec) Burks in transition in the fourth quarter. It was Durant’s 10th technical foul this season.
