Warriors' Durant, Green tiff continued after loss

LA Clippers hang on to beat Golden State Warriors 121-116 in overtime

LA Clippers hang on to beat Golden State Warriors 121-116 in overtime

Lou Williams scored 10 of his 25 points in overtime after the Clippers blew a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter, and Los Angeles hung on Monday night to beat the Golden State Warriors at home for the first time in almost four years, 121-116.

The conflict stemmed from Monday night's game when Green turned the ball over in the final seconds of regulation of an overtime loss to the Los Angeles Clippers instead of giving the ball to Durant, the team's designated closer with Stephen Curry sidelined.

Williams recovered after shooting 3 of 16 in regulation, when the Clippers were scoreless over the final 5:15 while the Warriors ran off 11 straight points to force overtime tied at 106-all.

This isn't the first time Durant and Green have gone at one another. It was noted earlier in the day that one of Green's barbs directed at Durant surrounded the two-time reigning NBA Finals MVP's pending free agency.

Green was set to serve his suspension during Tuesday night's home game against the Atlanta Hawks and reportedly sacrifice more than $120,000 in the process.

Ander Herrera says Manchester City may be favourites for Sunday's derby but Manchester United remain the biggest side in the UK. MF Paul Pogba , 6 - Back at the club where he made himself a star, it was one of those nights when nothing seemed to come off.

Durant wanted the ball to take the last shot in the fourth quarter but Green took it up the court himself and did not get a shot off.

Wojnarowski and Spears reported earlier Tuesday that the organization was taking seriously the fallout from the confrontation and was spending the day working through the issues that might have been created - or even advanced - within the team's dynamic.

Durant, who also jumped for the rebound, was seen calling for the ball and appeared upset at the conclusion of the play.

"Just team spirit", Warriors guard Shaun Livingston told reporters about the feud.
