KD, Draymond Involved in Heated Exchange, Spilled into Locker Room
The Golden State Warriors may have taken a loss on Monday night in overtime when they took on the Los Angeles Clippers, but they seemed to have taken an even bigger ‘L’ in the locker room.
Kevin Durant was noticeably upset when Draymond Green pulled down a defensive rebound and dribbling it up the court before subsequently losing it as time expired, pushing the highly-contested game into overtime. This sparked an argument following the buzzer which led to Green allegedly confronting Durant about his impending free agency before teammates stepped into break up the spat.
The Warriors went onto lose the game by a score of 121-116.
Following the game, a closed-door exchange ensued, which witnesses claimed to be one of the more heated fights of this Warriors era. Apparently, there was no hint of physicality and no one was separated, but a loud shouting match took place. The team has suspended Green for one game for his actions as they reportedly continue to look for a way to fix the current issue.
This is not the first time that Green and Durant were involved in a visible kerfuffle. The two were seen arguing back in 2017 on the sideline in a game against the Sacramento Kings.
Durant is eligible to become a free agent this upcoming offseason.
