Draymond Green Benched For Tonight’s Game Against Atlanta

Durant called out Green in the huddle for not passing him the ball at the end of regulation in Monday's game, which prompted Green to fire back at Durant, sources said.

Some teammates loudly confronted Green in the locker room for his decision-making on the final play of regulation of the 121-116 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told ESPN.

The Warriors are working through the issues on Tuesday that may have been created or even advanced.

One of the inescapable factors already being asked about Green's suspension centered on Durant's looming free agency and how choosing to punish Green could escalate tensions between the star players.

The Warriors announced the news, saying Green was being suspended for conduct detrimental to the team. Durant had been slapping his hands, calling for the ball.

Following Green and Durant's confrontation, the Warriors rallied together and got burned by Lou Williams' 10 points to fall by five in overtime. "You all are going to report what you want to report".

Green was forceful in his defense of himself, which helped to escalate the volume in the room, sources said.

"Just team spirit", Livingston said. Guys might have thought they were open or wanted the basketball, didn't get it. Things happen like that in sports.

Prior to the incident, Golden State had mounted a big comeback, which included a 19-5 run to force overtime.

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.
