In the heated exchange between KD and Dray, Durant was incensed that Green didn’t pass him the ball in the final seconds of the 4th quarter for a chance to beat the Clippers in regulation.
If you’re keeping score at home, the Los Angeles Clippers won the game 121-116 in overtime.
Durant did have a hot-hand. He finished the game with 33 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, and two blocks.
It was reported by The Athletic’s Anthony Slater that Durant did storm out of the Warriors lockerroom after the Warriors’ loss.
Quick Kevin Durant exit from the locker room tonight. Gone before reporters entered.

This really should not be an issue at all because Durant and Green have had these moments in the past, proving in the end, though, that they’re mere hiccups to their chemistry.
It should not raise any concern, but due to Kevin Durant being a potential free agent next summer, people will nitpick this occurrence. Whenever Durant is frustrated or gets into it with Green, it will always be headline news no matter what the situation is.
Per a report via Heavy over the weekend, Durant, a two-time NBA champion with the Warriors, could consider joining the Los Angeles Lakers in the summer of 2019.
