The OKC Thunder lost to the struggling Brooklyn Nets last night 110-93.  Thunder star Kevin Durant isn't use to being on the short end of a beating like that.  With 1:57 left in the game Durant got loud with referee Danny Crawford, and Crawford wasn't having any of it.  He tossed Durant out of the game for the first time in his 5 year career.  The underlying problem might be that point guard Russell Westbrook had more shots than Durant....again.  Westbrook has been a big question in the media the last couple seasons with the amount of shots he takes.  No way this kid should be shooting more than the best scorer in the NBA.  Check out the ejection below. Afterwards Durant said “I said it was a bad call. They got a quick trigger now. I just thought it was a bad call. Like I said, you get frustrated throughout a game and show emotion. That’s how you can tell you love it.” Check out our Home Page for more stories and follow us on Twitter and Facebook
