A Portland Trail Blazers fan was ejected from Moda Center during the second quarter of Friday night’s game against the Golden State Warriors after having some words with Warriors superstar Kevin Durant.

As you may have caught in that video, Durant blew a kiss as the fan was being escorted out by security.

After the game, Durant spoke with the media, and said he wasn’t exactly sure what the fan said, but said that the fan was “talking shit.” Durant added that the ref was the one that made the decision, and did so before Durant even walked over there.
Durant finished answering the question about the incident with a smile and, “I’m glad the ref got his ass.”
Here’s video, from Anthony Slater of The Athletic:

The Blazers seemed to be better off with the fan leaving the building anyway. Portland outscored the Warriors 38-25 in the fourth quarter to come away with a 125-108 win over the defending champs (granted, without Steph Curry).
It’s the Blazers’ ninth consecutive win, which is the best streak currently going in the NBA after the Houston Rockets lost to end a 17-game winning streak on Saturday night.
