Frustrated Faried kicked hole in locker room wall Sunday

Kenneth Faried should be frustrated. He came back for Game two of the Nuggets series against Golden State right at the same time David Lee went out.

Yet the Warriors have won three straight on the floor as Andrew Bogut and Carl Landry have stepped up inside the paint and, to the best of my recollection, Stephen Curry has not missed a shot.

That frustrated Faried kicked a hole in the locker room wall in Golden State, reports Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post (follow that link and you can see a photo of the hole in some drywall).

“I hate losing with a passion. I hate losing more than I like winning,” forward Kenneth Faried said after Denver lost Game 4 at Golden State.

And so, when Faried headed into the locker room after falling behind 3-1, he kicked a hole in the drywall.

On the bright side, all the fire extinguishers in the Oracle Arena were safe.

Golden State has a stranglehold on the series up 3-1. Denver returns home for Game 5 on Tuesday and both Faried and the Nuggets need to shake off that frustration, find some better defensive footing and get a win.

Do that and the locker room walls can be safe for a day.
