Kevin Durant Calls Out LeBron James Due To Locker Room Shower Issue After Game Vs. Cavs


After thoroughly outplaying the Cleveland Cavaliers on their home floor on Monday night in one of the most exciting games of the season, almost nothing could kill the Golden State Warriors' mood after their decisive victory.

The Warriors came out 10-point victors, 118-108, sweeping the Cavaliers in the season series two to zip, which has gotta instill some confidence in Steve Kerr's squad if they face them in the NBA Finals for a fourth consecutive year in June.

The Warriors were on a high as they headed back into the locker rooms after the game, but that feeling was promptly washed away -- pardon the pun -- by some issues with the water system in their locker room showers.

No hot water you say? Could this be a tactic put forward by the Quicken Loans Arena utility crew? Obviously, this was more than likely a pure coincidence, given the rivalry the Warriors have with the Cavs, but some Golden State players were less than pleased with the temperature of the water. Kevin Durant -- who scored a game-high 32 points in the win -- wasn't one of those players however, joking around with reporters when asked about the shower malfunction.

"Aye, LeBron, you mind fixing the hot water system in the away team locker room?"


This may have been a subtle jab at LeBron and the Cavs, given James does practically everything for Cleveland on the court, so why not extend that jack-of-all-trades approach to the arena's maintenance as well.

The Warriors can only hope the hot water issue will be fixed when they inevitably come back to Cleveland for the NBA Finals.
