With eight minutes left in the third quarter of the Warriors’ Tuesday night game against the Denver Nuggets, Kevin Durant was ejected after arguing with an official.
With the Warriors leading 70-49, Durant thought he was fouled on a contested three-point attempt, but no call was made.
The former MVP then confronted an official and was given a technical foul for something he said, and was ejected shortly afterward.
The lip readers of Twitter were unable to determine what exactly Durant said to the official prior to the ejection, but were probably able to deduce which expletive-laden insult Durant hurled at the official after learning he was ejected.
Durant had 21 points prior to his ejection, and threw down a monster and-one dunk in the final minutes of the second quarter.
The Warriors led the Nuggets 59-43 at halftime.
