Kevin Durant then grabbed a microphone and spoke to the fans.
"Every one of these guys came out and played as hard we can for you guys every single night," Durant said. "Just being here is amazing, seeing you guys is amazing."
Enes Kanter recorded the action and he and fellow big man Steven Adams gave the fans some love.
