Durant lashed out at a referee and was assessed two technical fouls and was ejected from the game just before halftime of a 116-107 loss to the Bucks. The star forward felt he had been fouled on a drive to the rim.
Durant, who had 10 points, six assists and three rebounds in 17 minutes, said of his conversations with the refs, "I could definitely talk to them a little better, I guess".
Durant appears to first yell, "Yo, you didn't see that f--ing foul?" followed by "Call the f--ing foul you b--h ass motherf--er!"
After the game, a pool reporter asked crew chief Bill Kennedy to explain the ejection.
Kevin Durant is held back after being ejected in a game vs. the Bucks. The first technical foul was issued for vulgarity. He then started to say some words that can't be written here, and was quickly hit with not one, but two technicals.More news: Microsoft Takes Spotlight Off Windows in AI-Focused Reorg

OAKLAND, Calif. - Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant told ESPN that the reason for his ejection uptick this season is due to a burning desire to repeat as an National Basketball Association champion. He's up to five this season.
Rasheed Wallace is the only player to have more ejections in the last 25 years, receiving seven in both the 1999-00 and 2000-01 seasons. As a team, the Kings shot 53 percent from the field and 13 of 31 from the three-point line but they just had no answer for the Pacers' Victor Oladipo who scored 13 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter.
"It was a tech".
Unfortunately, this game doesn't mean much for either team as Thursday night's loss against Milwaukee locked up the number one seed for Houston, and the Kings are now tanking to get the top pick in the upcoming draft. "I wish I didn't".
"What we did as a team was special, and I want to experience that again". It didn't. That's when I realized in the offseason that the only thing that matters is this game and how much work you put into it. He was initially ruled out for at least four games, though Kerr conceded at the time that Thompson was "probably looking at (missing) a couple weeks".
