Golden State Warriors big man Marreese Speights had a lot to say Sunday while playing against the OKC Thunder.
Speights claims that OKC Thunder center Kendrick Perkins’ chirping motivated him to have a big night, in the Warriors’ 91-86 road win.
Speights finished with 28 points, while Perkins only manged four points.
Per the San Fran Chronicle:
Speights spent much of the game talking trash to the Thunder’s bench — all the while, knocking down 11-of-18 shots for a season-high 28 points. Apparently, most of Speights’ venom was directed at Oklahoma City backup center Kendrick Perkins, who had four points on 2-of-4 shooting.
“It’s just that Perk always has something to say,” Speights said. “He thinks he’s a tough guy, but at the end of the day, his game is terrible. He always has something to say to me, every time we play against each other.
“It always gets me going, so: ‘Shout out to Perkins’ for helping me get this game.”
