CLEVELAND – Cavaliers center Kendrick Perkins‘ has positioned himself as the Warriors’ biggest enemy/nuisance (depending on your perspective) in these NBA Finals.

After Game 3 Wednesday, he targeted Kevin Durant.

Jason Lloyd of The Athletic:

On his way out of the arena, Kendrick Perkins stopped in the hallway and stuck his head in the interview room to see who was on the podium. When he saw it was Kevin Durant, Perk saluted him — with two middle fingers raised high over his massive frame. Without saying a word, he turned away and continued heading for the exit.

Durant responded by mouthing some unkind words:

Is the Golden State-Cleveland rivalry intensifying? Not quite.

Durant and Perkins are close from their time with the Thunder, and this was almost certainly good-natured ribbing between the two.
