Report: Draymond Green-Kevin Durant tension carried into Warriors locker room


Programming note: Watch tonight's Warriors-Hawks game streaming live at 7:30pm on the MyTeams app.

Near the end of regulation Monday night, Draymond Green secured a rebound and elected to push the ball down the floor instead of giving it to Kevin Durant.

Draymond ended up losing control, the Warriors never got off a shot, Durant fouled out early in overtime, and the Warriors lost to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Durant wasn't happy with Draymond's decision in the closing seconds ...

... and the frustration spilled over into the huddle heading into OT ...

... and it reportedly spilled over into the locker room:

However, the key takeaway from reporting by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc Spears:

No one had to be separated, no player left his side and no hint of physicality loomed in the setting, sources said.

Things get heated, and things happen in the heat of competition. You probably can put this one in the "not a big deal in the long run" category. We might learn more if Draymond and/or Durant address the media after Tuesday night's game against the Atlanta Hawks.
