Kevin Durant kisses fan who was hit by basketball at Warriors game (VIDEO)

One of the Golden State Warriors’ 16 turnovers on Thursday night hurt more than the others for a fan sitting courtside.

In the second half, an errant pass hit a fan directly in the face in what looked to be a painful moment.

Kevin Durant saw it happened and kissed the fan in an attempt to console her.

“She got hit pretty hard,” Durant explained after the 112-97 win over the Dallas Mavericks. “I seen when he threw the pass, I was like, ‘Oh, this is going straight for her face.’ It hit her pretty hard and she had glasses on. So I’m sure that hurt. I just wanted to come over there because she didn’t want to open her eye. She thought she had a cut on her eye. So I told her it’s all good and gave her a kiss. Hopefully she’s alright.”
