LOS ANGELES – Golden State Warriors All-Stars Kevin Durant and Draymond Green usually hold each other in control when they become too emotional about a call or game throughout the season.
On monday night, teammates swapped words on the bench at the end of regulation during a 121-116 overtime loss to Los Angeles Clippers.
Durant, who ended with a triple doubles, scored 33 points, took 11 rebounds and decoupled 10, obviously upset that Green did not give up the ball at the end of the game’s game bound 106-106.
Instead of finding Durant, Green shaved up the floor but in the end the ball had passed before he could take a shot. TV cameras caught Durant and Green exchange words on the bench, as both proud players have to settle down by their teammates before the start of overtime.
Lou Williams scored 1
0 of his 25 points in overtime after Clippers blew a 14-point league in the fourth quarter and Los Angeles hung on Monday night to beat the golden state wars at home for the first time in almost four years, 121-116.
Warrior’s Guard Stephen Curry did not play against Clippers Monday and will be out Tuesday against the Hawks when he continues to recover from the left-handed trunk, but the Golden State welcomed Draymond Green and Shaun Livingston back.
How bad will fans from Golden State Warriors just come into the building for a home game? We will soon find out.
Neither the player picked up media after the game, but veteran watchman Shaun Livingston recorded the heated exchange.
“Just layman,” said Livingston. “Team spirit. Guys wanted a different result than happened. Dray obviously had sales, guys maybe thought they were open or wanted the basketball, did not get it. Watch some fire, some feelings.”
Durant’s order and Green overshadowed the fact that Warriors put a good picture of teamwork to even get back into the game – steal a 19-5 run to close the regulation and send it to overtime. Durant fought wrong all night but managed to hang down the race down the stretch to help Warriors back. In addition to the proprietary fireworks on the bench, there was a dubious conversation from Judge Marc Davis, one who gave Durant his sixth and last foul, frustrating the group more than almost all other whistles.
“[Davis] [Montrezl] Harrell did the sweep and that’s why he called it,” said Warrior’s coach Steve Kerr. “I do not think it must be an automatic foul. I did not see an error. It appeared that his hands were here and Harrell just swung the ball through. It does not cost us the game. “
” I thought it was a tough conversation, “added Livingston.” They made a lot of tough conversations, doubtful. It was a dubious conversation because he had lost the ball, kind of flop, sold it. I do not know if Marc [Davis] had the best angle, but he did call. “
The wars were outscored 30-16 at the foul line, but Kerr noted that Clippers deserved victory. He did not blame the tough whistles for the loss, but the Warriors know that some of these whispers have changed the tenor of the game.
” I thought that four were tough conversations, “said Kerr of Durant’s mistake.” It was a hard night for Kevin, and I just held him out there, because we’re obviously a bit short of Steph [Curry]. And I like to let the guys play anyway, it was some tough. “
The warriors really did not worry that any difficult emotions between Durant and Green at the moment would remain. They knew they did not execute sometimes when they needed and are convinced they will bounce back on Tuesday night to the Atlanta Hawks “Another game, they will be without Curry, as he continues to recover from a strained left lion.”
“When we lock in, we are the world’s best defense team,” said Warriors Klay Thompson. “We have proven that the latest over the years we have the best switchability in the league … Unfortunately, we’ve lost, but we’ll see them again a couple of times and get better. “
If he was impressed by Clipper’s defensive glimpse, Thompson brushed some big praise. 19659002] “I mean they are good,” he said. “But they are nothing special.”
