Kevin Durant, Draymond Green Confrontation Carried Into Locker Room

Steve Kerr will give Kevin Durant extra responsibility in Curry's absence

Green grabbed a rebound off a Clippers miss with six seconds left and instead of passing to Durant, who was calling for the ball on the way upcourt, took the ball himself and ended up turning the ball over with a chance to win the game.

Green was also challenged by his teammates after a costly turnover in OT. Additionally, the conflict wasn't just limited to Green and Durant as others confronted Green for his late-game decision-making.

The impending free agency of Durant heightens the sensitivity of the issue. Flip the pages for reactions and video of the argument.

Following Green and Durant's confrontation, the Warriors rallied together and got burned by Lou Williams' 10 points to fall by five in overtime.

Television cameras later captured Durant and Green having an animated conversation on the bench, with Klay Thompson sitting between them. With the final seconds ticking down, Green attempt to dribble through traffic only to lose the ball and fail to get a shot off as time expired. "Team spirit. Guys wanted a different outcome than what happened".

Lou Williams scored the Clippers' final 10 points in overtime after they blew a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter, to hang on to beat the Warriors at home for the first time in almost four years.

A three-game slate highlights Tuesday's National Basketball Association action with the Golden State Warriors hosting the Atlanta Hawks and the Denver Nuggets look to continue their hot start to the 2018-19 season versus the Houston Rockets. "But it was good to see some fire, some emotion", Livingston said.

Golden State (11-3) hosts the Hawks (3-10) at 10:30 p.m. ET.
