Game 3 Kevin Durant was so good.
It seems like we never really have a handle on Kevin Durant’s personality. Is he a nice guy? Is he a villain? It seems to change daily, especially after he left Oklahoma City for Golden State. But during Game 3, he was 100 percent a savage. A villain. The rudest guy on the basketball court. And it was glorious.
Durant took over late in the game when the Warriors needed it, finishing with 38 points and 13 rebounds. But during that fourth quarter, while it was clear he was absolutely the best player on the court, he went Villain Warrior on us.
He started trash talking some court side Jazz fans

He told the Jazz mascot to literally, “Get the f**k of the court.”
He got a Flagrant 1 foul for shoving Rudy Gobert.

And then stared him down. The fire in his eyes!
Then after Gobert missed the free throw from the foul, the trash talking continued.

He hit a dagger shot and followed it up with a shrug
So savage KD does exist. Russell Westbrook would be so proud in another lifetime. The Warriors will look to finish the sweep of the Jazz on Monday night.
