Kevin Durant had a great Game 3, setting a new career high for points in a playoff game with 43 to lead the Warriors to a 3-0 series lead, all but wrapping up a second straight championship.
It was a great night on the floor at The Q for Durant, but he wasn’t thrilled with some of the response he got from some in Cleveland at the arena and back at the hotel afterwards. Video emerged overnight of Durant taking exception to some very bad, very drunken heckling that took place at the hotel, beginning with someone saying “UT’s butt,” as in, the University of Texas where Durant went to school.
However, that wasn’t the only encounter Durant had that evening. As The Athletic noted after the game in their roundup, Kendrick Perkins offered a double middle finger salute to Durant as he strolled by the press room while Durant was talking.
Our wonderful social team did some digging and found that moment on the feed and Durant hilariously responded silently, with an apparent “f*ck you, b*tch ass,” when he saw Perk stroll by flipping him off.
Perk has not played a minute in this series, but is doing his best to be an agitator. He got into with with Steph Curry a bit in Game 2 and then said the Warriors need to find another battle cause he’s not the one they want. However, with Durant, it seems to be all in good fun as the two former Thunder teammates enjoyed their back and forth.
