In the third quarter of Game 4, these NBA Finals got nasty. It was physical, emotions were up, and nobody was backing down.
After Durant was fouled going to the basket — a foul that was eventually ruled a flagrant 1 on Kevin Love — Durant and LeBron went jaw to jaw for a while. The officials were patient breaking it up, not letting it escalate (not that either of those two would lose control).
What was said? After the game, both will say “nothing.”
Just consider it a sign things are now serious.
