Watch: Kyle Lowry pushed by Warriors fan sitting courtside
Kyle Lowry was upset after he got pushed by a fan sitting courtside for Game 3 of the NBA Finals between his Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night.
Lowry dived into the crowd to try and save a ball following a block by Serge Ibaka early in the fourth quarter. A fan sitting in the first row wearing a blue shirt gave him a shove:

Lowry was talking with the fan after the matter and shaking his head, saying the fan had pushed him. The video proves he was right.
The fan’s conduct was completely inappropriate and unnecessary. The NBA is trying to crack down on inappropriate fan conduct in response to the March incident between Russell Westbrook and some fans in Utah. It seems like officials at Oracle Arena took action as the fan was later seen leaving his seat:
