It's the fifth time he's been tossed this season.
Kevin Durant is the second best player in the National Basketball Association, but he is quickly becoming the most thin skinned player in the league. After promptly being hit with one technical foul, Durant then ran toward the official again, earning his second T, which resulted in an automatic ejection.
The chance to pick up a road win over the defending champions is the kind of scenario that rarely needs any extra motivation, but the way in which the Bucks let Tuesday's game against the Clippers get away from them late on may have provided some all the same. The Golden State Warriors are going to be healthy by the second round of the playoffs, and they have fantastic odds of making it to the Western Conference Finals and facing the Houston Rockets there. Two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry is out for the rest of the regular season and is not likely to return for the first round of the playoffs with a grade 2 MCL sprain.
"I think Kevin just had a moment".
"It was a tech", Durant said.
Green, who missed the three previous games (pelvic contusion and flu-like symptoms), had 11 points and six assists. "What people say, how they view you, it's not important". I'm sorry. Well, I'm not sorry, but I wish I could finish the game.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr sent Durant a text message after Thursday's game, encouraging the forward to put the ejection behind him and move forward.
Bucks: Guards Malcolm Brogdon (left quadriceps) and Matthew Dellavedova (right ankle), both sidelined since February, remained out with no timetable for their return, according to interim coach Joe Prunty.
The team's next game is Saturday against the Kings in Sacramento.
A day later, Durant explained why his emotions have been getting the best of him.
Thompson missed his eighth straight game with a fractured right thumb.
