The Oklahoma City Thunder marched into Salt Lake City on Tuesday night and got worked by the Utah Jazz, 109-94, but the final score isn’t what seemed to irk Kevin Durant the most. He took to Twitter after the game to share his thoughts on what it’s like sitting on the visitor’s bench at EnergySolutions Center:
I love playing in Utah, just upset at how the fans treated us behind our bench….we don’t deserve that..but I’m movin on

Not helping Durant’s cause was the fact he committed his first career flagrant foul (about as tame a flagrant foul as you’ll ever see), but this is the same crowd that booed Derek Fisher after he signed with the Lakers — a decision he made in order to provide better medical care for his daughter — so it’s not as if Jazz fans don’t have an established history of being awful.
In addition to the tweet, Durant fired this shot when asked if EnergySolutions was one of the loudest in the league: “Nah. It’s not even as loud as an empty Oklahoma City arena.”[@KDTrey5]
