Golden State Warriors trio fined for criticising officials

Golden State Warriors trio fined for criticising officials

Don't tell Kevin Durant that.

"The energy in the crowd at that point was incredible".

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he was surprised that Durant got ejected. "I think that's disrespectful as a player. It's unfortunate he didn't get to play more".

With six games remaining on the schedule, Durant wants to ensure that Golden State returns to familiar territory with a chance to make their fifth consecutive NBA Final.

After attempting a three-point shot with 8:21 left in the third quarter, Durant approached the official, unhappy with a non-call on what he believed was contact that should have resulted in three free-throw attempts.

Four minutes into the second half of Tuesday's 116-102 win over the Nuggets, Warriors forward Kevin Durant seemed to have enough with National Basketball Association official Zach Zarba. I watched the whole thing. I didn't think he deserved to be ejected, but I think Zach Zarba is one of the best officials in the game, and so I think I have no complaints with Zach.

"I think we can be better at keeping our poise, myself included", Kerr said.

President's comment about wind turbines causing cancer confuses Iowa's Chuck Grassley
A White House spokesman did not immediately respond to a request Wednesday for evidence to back up the president's claim. Question: "Do wind turbines cause cancer?" 'Yeah I hear the windmill blows the Cancer into you.' one Twitter user wrote.

Perhaps the most jarring takeaway from Durant's ejection Tuesday was how he was playing before the play, as he poured in 21 points on 9-of-13 shooting, helping the Warriors build a 16-point halftime lead. He treated the end of a one-sided game the way it should be treated: Get it over with and don't show anyone up. 4 with an injury to the same ankle, was closely monitored and played almost 29 minutes. Curry and the rest of the team was seen laughing at a referee for missing a potential four-point play.

"And hopefully through that process, down the stretch of the season, we win games and take care of our business".

With 15 technicals apiece this season, Green and Durant find themselves among the league leaders in the category. Nikola Jokic only was able to manage 10 points while also turning the ball over six times. Now, a half-decade and four NBA Finals later, it's Golden State who has gotten the wrap of ref hunters.

Curry teased the PR staff regarding the Mullin mark "because I did not know that was on the horizon".

Curry called Kogut "the MVP" of the night. "His jersey is in the rafters obviously for a reason". "I think for a few guys on our team, relationship-wise, this kind of hit them pretty hard the last couple days, just talking to them". They are 12-12 vs. the West on the road. The Blazers, Jazz and Spurs are all jockeying for playoff position, so Denver can not afford to hold anything back as they continue to chase a top two seed in the conference.

The Warriors received 28 points from Demarcus Cousins which was a season high for the big-man. The Warriors also have won five of the last eight season series against Denver.
