Although the entire Clippers team made key contributions, it was Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell who made the most remarkable impact to lift the Clippers over Warriors in overtime.

Durant was clearly demanding the ball during the crucial final possession against the LA Clippers, and as one of the game's best finishers, was entitled to take the last-second shot.

Draymond Green didn't fully receive answers from Bob Myers and Steve Kerr for why they chose to suspend him for one game following his confrontation with Kevin Durant.

Miami had one of the most promising offers before Houston offered four first-round picks for Butler's services. I love to show I can help a team win, that I'm one of the really good players in the league.


Clearly KD was furious, and his agitation only intensified after Green went at him on the sidelines. "Green let out his frustrations about how Durant has handled free agency - keeping his options open and keeping the story alive, consuming the Warriors and their season with talk of what Durant will do next".

This tweet above shows they actually were cool with one another back in the day. "The only hope is that they can say this summer, 'See, KD. [Expletive] happens in the NBA", Durant said.

"I'm not trying to give nobody no headlines", Durant said after the Warriors' bounce-back 110-103 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday (NZT Wednesday). "We've got a long season ahead".

That fire is already the most destructive on record in the state, leaving the small town of Paradise in ashes. More than 8,000 firefighters are battling wildfires across California , including many from out of state.


For those keeping score at home, the earliest Green will speak on the record will come Thursday before the Warriors pay a visit to the Rockets. The words do look a lot like "that's why I'm out", but we'll leave that for you to decide.

Durant has won two championships since signing with the Warriors.

Now, there is a real question as to how the team can move forward as the locker room has become split on how Green handled the situation and how Durant has handled his upcoming free agency.
