Fans will have to wait until the preseason kicks off in October to see Kevin Durant play his first game in a Golden State Warriors uniform. But on Tuesday night, Durant played in his first game at Oracle Arena, Golden State’s home court, since joining the Warriors. USA Basketball held an exhibition against China ahead of the Rio Olympics in front of a crowd that largely approved of Durant’s move to Golden State.

Durant was introduced with the starters before the game, and needless to say, a crowd heavy on Warriors fans loved it. Here’s a video of his almost 30-second ovation during player intros from Sports Illustrated‘s Ben Golliver:
