It's just team spirit - Livingston not anxious by Durant-Green exchange

The Warriors dropped their second game in three tries on Monday night in Los Angeles, as the Clippers pulled out a 121-116 overtime win over the defending champions.

Green will be benched without pay as the Warriors host the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday.

In the closing seconds of the fourth quarter against the Clippers on Monday night, Green grabbed a rebound and chose to push the ball up court instead of passing it to Kevin Durant, who repeatedly called for the ball.

Kevin Durant's impending free agency is an issue that has been "simmering" among the Golden State Warriors, according to a report. Durant and Green clearly weren't seeing eye-to-eye and eventually had to be separated by DeMarcus Cousins, of all people.

Green rebounded the ball with about 5 seconds left and made a decision to take the ball up himself instead of passing to Kevin Durant or Klay Thompson, who wanted the ball.

The argument between Durant and Green began after Green ignored Durant's call for the ball in overtime, resulting in a Warriors loss.

The first lady's team had told the president that it suspected Ricardel was leaking negative stories about Melania Trump to the press.

"The organization is taking seriously the fallout of Monday night's confrontation, spending Tuesday working through the issues that may have been created - or even advanced - within the team's dynamic, league sources said".

Green was suspended for "conduct detrimental to the team". "Guys wanted a different outcome to what happened", Livingston - back in action himself following a foot injury - told reporters after the game.

"Obviously, Dray had the turnover".

Wojnarowski later quoted Shaun Livingston, who dismissed the confrontation as a product of "team spirit".

"Things like that happen in the sport, but it was good to see some fire and emotion".
