Draymond has hilarious reaction to KD-Tucker skirmish

Two Longhorns went nose to nose Thursday night, and Draymond Green was amused by the whole scene.

In the third quarter of Game 3 of the second-round NBA playoff series between the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks at Fiserv Forum, former Warriors forward Kevin Durant was fouled by P.J. Tucker, and the two former Texas Longhorns had words for each other.

Durant said something after the call by the refs and Tucker took exception, getting in Durant's face.

Durant and Tucker had to be separated by the other players on the court, Milwaukee coaches and security even had to run onto the court to make sure the incident didn't escalate.

Draymond, who believes Durant and the Nets will go deep in the playoffs, couldn't believe security guards were needed for this skirmish.

Durant and Tucker each were assessed technical fouls for the kerfuffle.

Earlier in the quarter, Draymond tweeted about the night Durant was having. At the time of his tweet, Durant had just 11 points on 4-of-16 shooting and 0-of-2 from 3-point range.

Obviously Durant didn't see Draymond's tweet, but the Nets star immediately hit two big 3-pointers, with the second shot tying the game 57-57.

The Nets weren't able to take down the Bucks on Thursday, falling 86-83 as Durant's potential game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer clanked off the back of the rim.

Brooklyn leads the series two-games-to-one with Game 4 scheduled for Sunday in Milwaukee.
