Kevin Durant is usually regarded as a player who keeps his cool, but he lost it on Wednesday night in Oklahoma City. Durant was ejected for the first time in his career after arguing a call with referee Danny Crawford midway through the fourth quarter. After teammate Kendrick Perkins was whistled for a tech himself, Durant lit into Crawford and didn’t relent. “I just thought it was a bad call,” Durant said after the game. “You get frustrated throughout a game, you show emotion. That’s how you can tell you love it.” Check out the ejection in the video below.
