The NBA has fined Oklahoma City star forward Kevin Durant $25,000 for making a “menacing gesture,” when he pretended to slice his throat after throwing down a big dunk during the Thunder’s victory against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night.
The play that led to Durant’s costly celebration occurred with about 1:45 left in the second quarter of Oklahoma City’s 116-97 win at Golden State.
Thunder guard Russell Westbrook blocked Warriors guard Stephen Curry’s layup, and Durant corralled the ball and went in for a soaring dunk at the other end of the court. He then made a throat-slashing gesture and crossed his hands in prayer.
