There is an instant dropout on the late game exchange between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green during the Golden State Warriors "Monday night loss Los Angeles Clippers.

The confrontation continued into the dressing room with the teammates loudly in front of Green for his decision-making on the final game of regulation, according to Adrian Adrian's Adrian Winrovsky Mark J. Spears.

The scene was described as "the most intense situation" of the warrior dynasty, but there was no evidence that anything physical would occur at any moment, adds Winrovsky. Green's strong defense of his actions added to the tension.

The sensitivity of the situation is probably reinforced by the free agency of the free Durant at the end of the season.

No player took the media after the game, but goalkeeper Sean Livingston reduced the incident.

"Teams wanted a different result than what happened, it's clear that Ledrey had a turnover, maybe the guys thought they were open or wanted basketball, they do not understand it, things like that happen in sports, but it was good to see what kind of fire, What emotion, "Livingston said.

With the game tied to 106-106 near the regulatory end, Green grabbed the rebound and decided not to call a timeout, instead of dribbling into the front and failed to get shot as last seconds ticking. Golden State fell 121-116 to Clippers in overtime.

Durant, who also jumped on the rebound, seemed to read the ball and seemed agitated at the end of the play.

Then, the duo looks jaw on each other on the bench. Clay Thompson and Andre Igudala entered and seemed to be trying to disperse things.

No player has publicly commented on the event.

The warriors own the second best record in the NBA at 11-3 behind 12-2 Toronto Raptors.
