Kevin Durant gets in Goran Dragic’s face over perceived undercut (video)

Kevin Durant got a little feisty with Goran Dragic after the Heat guard got too close for Durant’s comfort on a botched alley-oop.

It sure didn’t look like Dragic did anything nefarious – or even touch Durant.

If Durant’s goal was truly to “add a little flair to the game,” as he said afterward, he at least did that. Dragic certainly looked shocked to be involved in a confrontation.

Otherwise, I’m not sure what what Durant – who got a technical foul for his reaction – accomplished here. After the game, he sounded like someone who realized he misread events (which, to be fair, were happening at high speed).

Dragic, via Slater:

“I didn’t even bump him, I just went back,” Dragic said. “The pass was way off and he landed out of bounds. I didn’t say nothing. Just tried to stay in my head and play my game.”
