As Orlando Magic fans wake up on Saturday morning, they will awake to some bad news, but at this point, what else can go bad? It was announced just after 11 a.m. that Magic forward Arron Afflalo will miss the remainder of the Magic’s 12 games due to a strained hamstring. The remedy for Afflalo’s injury will be rest and physical therapy.
In some news that clearly can’t be a good thing for the Magic heading into their game tonight against the Oklahoma City Thunder, All-Star small forward Kevin Durant has called tonight’s game a must win.

During one play, Westbrook was backing down Jerryd Bayless in the post and eventually got called for a five-second back down violation, resulting in a turnover. Westbrook got pissed, not at himself, but at Thabo Sefolosha and Kevin Durant for not getting open. After calling them out, he started yelling at head coach Scott Brooks, who then benched Westbrook.
On Wednesday night Kevin Durant experienced his first ejection of his career during the Thunder’s blowout loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
The ejection occurred with less than two minutes to go in the game when Durant began to argue with the referee after Kendrick Perkins was hit with a technical foul, which allowed Durant, himself, to pick a T.
After some words were exchanged (probably not nice words), Durant was then hit with his second technical, prompting his ejection.
