There was a bit of a wild ending to last night’s Warriors-Timberwolves game.
With 4 seconds left on the clock and down three points in overtime, Kevin Durant appeared to hit a game-tying 3-pointer while getting fouled but officials felt that he was fouled before shooting the ball. Immediately after getting the ball back Steph Curry was able to make the game-tying 3-pointer and went on to taunt ref Mark Kogut.
After the timeout following his 3-pointer Curry got in Kogut’s face before having to be separated by Boogie Cousins.
On the very next play Durant was then called for a foul with .5 seconds left on the clock which allowed the Timberwolves to hit a game-winning free throw.
After the game, an unhappy Curry mocked Kogut and called him the “MVP of the game”.
Durant was restrained while speaking to the media but would later take a shot at the refs on Instagram.
“I don’t want to blame it just on that, but I mean, like I said, we deserved to play at least five more minutes of basketball,” “I’m not going to say we would have won the game — they had momentum going into the second overtime. I’m sure you guys would agree with me when I say we should be playing five more minutes.” If you look at the play … [Bates-Diop] lost me for a quick second, and when I caught the ball, I knew they were going to foul, and I got it up quick and he had two hands on me as I was going into my shot and the [Kogut], he was the best player on the floor,”. “He’s so good with his whistle, he knew they were going to foul me before I shot the ball. So he’s one of the greatest refs of all time.”
Durant clearly fouled Karl-Anthony Towns on the final play and Steph Curry was out of line taunting the ref after the game-tying shot. The Warriors just come out like complete assholes here.
