Two of the Western Conference’s best teams faced-off on Wednesday night, as the Oklahoma City Thunder visited Portland to play the Trail Blazers. The Blazers would walk off their home court victorious by a score of 111-104, as they moved to first place in the west at 16-3. The Thunder are 13-4, which is good for the west’s third best record behind Portland and San Antonio.
The Score was 59-47 (Thunder lead) with seconds remaining in the first half, when Kevin Durant was called for a foul against Portland’s Mo Williams. KD didn’t like the call, or the verbal assault he received from a Trail Blazers’ fan as he walked the sidelines prior to Williams taking his free throws.
The fan remarks to Durant something along the lines of “oh you got all ball?”, and the tells Durant to “go back to Texas”, of course referring to Durant’s Alma Mater. Durant responds by telling the irate fan to “shut up” a couple of different times, before continuing to walk away. Durant was showered with a few BOOOS as he approached one of the officials.
Durant finished with 33 points, but it wasn’t enough as Portland won behind the fantastic play of LaMarcus Aldridge, who notched 38 points and 13 rebounds in the win. I guess the bearded fan got the last laugh.
