Oklahoma City Thunder: Kevin Durant tells Blazers fan to shut up

by Erik Horne Published: December 5, 2013

With seconds waning in the second quarter against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday, it looked like Kevin Durant committed a foul on a Blazers player from behind on a jumper.

A Portland fan took offense. KD responded.

The back-and-forth is at times inaudible but it’s pretty clear the message Durant was trying to get across. One fan shouts “go back to Texas,” in which Durant replies with a strong “shut up.” Boos ensue along with a few smiling faces in Portland’s “vocal peanut gallery,” according to Fox Sports Oklahoma’s Brian Davis.

Durant won the battle but the Blazers won the war 111-104, snapping the Thunder’s eight-game winning streak.
