Kevin Durant Says He Was Being An 'A-hole' To Referee

Kevin Durant Says He Was Being An 'A-hole' To Referee

Though the Golden State Warriors defeated the New York Knicks 123-13 on Tuesday night at Oracle Arena, Dubs star Kevin Durant was far from pleased after the game.

Durant recorded 14 points and as many assists before being tossed, the fourth time this season.

Durant said Tuesday that the beef with Williams began early in the game.

Haynes noted that Durant was previously ejected just once in his career, but is now up to four this season. I said that's what a crossover is for, and that's why I do it, to freeze my defender. He said I carried. That's why I do it.

"I was feeling him, because he is, " Durant added. "He went to halftime probably with an attitude". "So look at my first tech". I got the rebound, dribbled the ball hard and he tech'd me up. "So second half, his whole thing was he's trying to get me." said Durant during Tuesday night's postgame presser. I'm a human being too. I asked him where he got the carry from. He said I froze the defender.

After Durant spoke candidly, he said he wasn't going to dwell on the officiating, which has been a source of contention throughout the season between the players and the referees.

Williams, not Nansel, issued the second technical that sent Durant back to the tunnel, missing the last 2:50 of regulation.

"Kevin knows he should not have said what he said after the game", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said on Wednesday.

"I wasn't getting picked on". "I was being a diva last night". I think that's just the difference, the mental part of it. Durant looked nearly disinterested in finding his position on defense, or even guarding the inbound play - rather zoning in on Brett Nansel, who was the nearest to the play. I looked like a jerk out there.

"That one foul at the end wasn't a foul". "I shouldn't have slammed the ball down like I did". I can go back and say I was being a jerk last night, and I deserve whatever the league is going to throw at me. "I wish I handled that better, obviously, but it was kind of the heat of the moment for me. I can do better".

Durant told reporters after his team's victory over the Knicks that Williams was looking to toss him "because he was still in his feelings" over Durant telling Williams in the first half he was wrong to call Durant for carrying.
