With less than a minute remaining in the second quarter, Durant, who had missed the previous six games due to a rib injury, was driving to the basket and appeared to be fouled by Giannis Antetokounmpo as he missed a layup attempt.
Prior to the 2017-18 season getting underway, Durant had only one ejection in his first 10 years in the league. And with the stakes even higher at that point, Durant said he'll be on the up-and-up.
Durant leads the National Basketball Association with five ejections and now has 14 technical fouls, two short of the threshold for a one-game suspension.
Thanks to Thursday's loss, the Warriors will not finish as the Western Conference's No. 1 seed for the first time since the 2013-14 season. My love and passion for the game has [blossomed] because I understand that's what it's all about, and I'm pouring all of this [newfound thirst] into this game. The Kings have actually won two of three meetings against the Warriors this season and they are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings overall, so I'm reluctantly taking the Kings with the points at home in this one.
Thompson is averaging 19.7 points per contest while shooting 44.3 percent from three-point range this season.
But the Warriors never threatened again after Durant was tossed. "What people say, how they view you, it's not important".
Bucks: Antetokounmpo tweaked his ankle in the third quarter, but returned midway through the fourth after the Warriors made a move.
"Golden 1 Center safety and security officials continue to work with the Sacramento Police Department on security measures for the game on Saturday night to ensure the safety of guests", the release said.
Andre Iguodala exited the game with left knee soreness and likely won't play on Saturday at Sacramento, Kerr said.
