Durant also bristled at the notion that the brief incident would be the main talking point from the game.

Too bad Durant didn’t say there was a real beef between them, because that would have made for a real story and really made things interesting between the teams.
Golden State is now 13-5 following the loss, while the Thunder are 8-9.
