Steve Kerr Sitting Draymond Green Versus Hawks After Confrontation With Kevin Durant

The Warriors fell on the road to the Clippers in overtime 121-116 last night and Golden State just couldn't seem to get it together after regulation. With Durant's free agency a hot topic, it's something that the team wants resolved as quickly as possible.

This is not the first time that Durant and Green have had their differences, nor the first time that Green had has an emotional outburst.

Draymond Green's one-game suspension for "conduct detrimental to the team" came after he repeatedly called Kevin Durant a "bitch" in a verbal confrontation between the two stars during the Golden State Warriors' loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The two became testy in the huddle afterward, with injured center DeMarcus Cousins calmly talking to Green and separating Green from Durant.

While the battle did not become physical, it was heated as teammates sided with Durant, angry with Green for not passing the ball (and losing it on the dribble) in the closing seconds of a 106-106 game with the Clippers, which became an overtime loss. The scene was described as one of most intense of this Golden State Warriors' era. Meanwhile, Green was forceful in defending himself, which escalated the volume in the room, sources said.

"Guys wanted a different outcome than what happened", Livingston said. Backup point guard Shaun Livingston, however, attempted to minimize the incident.

"Things like that happen in the sport, but it was good to see some fire and emotion". Luckily for the Warriors, if there is still any anger and frustration from Monday night, they can take it all out on the Atlanta Hawks, as they play them Tuesday night.
