Warriors’ guard Klay Thompson doesn’t show his emotions on too often on the court, but on Friday evening, Thompson’s reaction to a fan’s jeers from the front row in Milwaukee helped trigger the fan’s ejection from the game.
On a fourth quarter drive to the rim, Thompson took a hard fall and landed near the front row courtside seats along the baseline at the Bradley Center. While Thompson was on the floor, a fan moved out of his seat and shouted at Thompson who was spilled across the floor underneath him.
The fan’s words clearly upset Thompson and his Warriors’ teammates, who asked officials and arena security to handle the situation. After pleading with security, the fan was removed from his seat and led away by security.
The fan ejection came at a critical juncture of the game, as the Warriors just regained an advantage over the Bucks following a big Milwaukee run to seize the lead heading into the fourth quarter.
