Durant responds to taunting Nuggets fan: 'We'll sweep your a--'

The Nuggets beat the Warriors on Monday night, 132-110. Denver tied a single-game regular season record with 24 3-pointers.

As Kevin Durant and his teammates left the floor, a Denver fan said, "See you in the playoffs."

Durant's response: "Yeah, we'll sweep your a--."

If the season ended today, the Warriors (46-9) would face the Nuggets (25-30) in the 1 vs 8 matchup.

Golden State won in Denver 125-101 on Nov. 10, and beat the Nuggets at Oracle 127-119 on Jan. 2.

The two teams don't play again this regular season.

In the 2013 playoffs, the 6-seeded Warriors upset the 3-seeded Nuggets in six games.

Durant scored 25 points in 27 minutes on Monday night.

Report: Warriors sign former Pacers forward

The Warriors reportedly added a player on Wednesday morning.

Golden State signed Georges Niang to a partially guaranteed contract, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Warriors already have 15 players with fully guaranteed contracts for next season.

It's possible that Niang ends up signing a two-way contract and spend the majority of the season in Santa Cruz.

Former Oregon big man Chris Boucher inked a two-way deal with the Warriors back in mid-July.

The Pacers selected Niang in the second round (50th overall) of the 2016 draft.

Last year, the power forward appeared in 23 games for Indiana.

He also played in six contests with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants -- averaging 19 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists.

The Pacers waived Niang last month.

As a senior at Iowa State, he averaged 20.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists, while shooting 39 percent from deep.

Steve Nash lashes out against Donald Trump in profanity-filled tweet

Donald Trump spoke to the media on Tuesday afternoon about the situation in Charlottesville.

He said the following:

"I think there is blame on both sides. What about the 'alt-left' that came charging at, as you say, the 'alt-right,' do they have any semblance of guilt? What about the fact they came charging with clubs in hands, swinging clubs, do they have any problem? I think they do.

"You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. Nobody wants to say it, but I will say it right now."

Shortly thereafter, Steve Nash tweeted the following:

"To defend white supremacists and then slang his shi**y as* grape juice pretty much sums the man up."

The end.
