Kevin Durant hits another fan, with no kiss this time (video)

It’s easy, during a 97-69 blowout, to start thinking of other things and take your eye off the ball.

And that’s never a good idea when you’re sitting in a sweet courtside seat. A woman in Phoenix learned that all too well when a ball slapped by Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder hit her smack upside the head Sunday. She was uninjured, but, unlike the lucky fan who was struck in the kisser by an errant tipped pass last fall, this fan didn’t get a smooch on the forehead from Durant.

And Durant scored 18 points in limited action as the Thunder beat the Suns for the 10th straight time.
