Why Did Kevin Durant Get Ejected? – Stephen Curry

Kevin Durant was ejected for comments he made to the ref after Stephen Curry was ejected.  Curry threw his mouthpiece at the ref because he thought he was fouled on a layup.  The Golden State Warriors don’t know how to lose.  The game was over.  They were down by 8 points in the fourth quarter and their two star players panicked.

In 2015-16 the Warriors won 73 games, breaking the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls 72-10 record.  They lost the championship to the Cleveland Cavaliers and then Kevin Durant joined the team.  In his first year with the Warriors, Durant led the team to their second championship in three years.  The Warriors now expect to win every game they play but the Memphis Grizzlies proved won’t happen.

The tweet below explains that it’s been a crazy weekend.  People think that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors will compete for this year’s championship but both teams lost on Saturday.  The Cavaliers lost to the Orlando Magic.

The following tweet shows that Steph Curry wasn’t fouled.  He reacts like Mike Conley committed a flagrant foul but he appears to touch the basketball.  Even if he hit Curry’s hand, the game was over.  The Warriors were down by 8 with 45 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
