Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Durant admitted that he deserves “whatever [fine] the League is going to throw at me.”

“I looked at the plays, a couple techs, and I was being an asshole last night. I was being a jerk.
“That one foul at the end wasn’t a foul. I shouldn’tve slammed the ball down like I did.
“I can go back and say that I was being a jerk last night, and I deserve whatever the League is going to throw at me.
“I wish I would have handled that better, obviously, but it was kind of heat-of-the-moment for me. I could be better. It’s a great learning experience for me, though.” […]
“I wish I could apologize to (referee) James [Williams] because that was out of my character.”
