Kevin Durant reacts angrily to Draymond Green question - 'That's all I want' | Other | Sport

The pair argued on Monday night as the Warriors suffered a narrow loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Durant was angry that Green did not pass him the ball, instead opting to run downcourt and lose possession in the dying seconds of the game.

Both men exchanged some choice words after the incident and Green reportedly told ‘KD’: “We don’t need you. We won without you. Leave.”

Green was consequently issued a one-match ban from the franchise.

Durant is in the final year of his Warriors contract and tension is growing among the roster as to whether the 30-year-old will sign an extension.

Star players including Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and, indeed, Green all took pay cuts to secure the small forward’s services.

Since then, Durant has led the Warriors to two straight NBA championships, winning Finals MVP in both series against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

As Green alluded to, however, the Warriors did win a ring before Durant came – something the visceral power forward threw in his team-mate’s face.

The pair played their first game together after the spat on Thursday night in a calamitous 107-86 loss to the Houston Rockets.

When asked about the incident after the game, KD angrily reacted, saying: “Don’t ask me about that again.”

It appears that Durant is yet to get over the situation as he was once again frosty when asked about it after last night’s loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

“We’re just trying to move forward,” he said, stone-faced.

“Are we going to talk about this the whole year?

“We just wanna play ball. That’s all I want.

“Nobody likes to lose, I think that’s what it is more than anything in the locker room. Hopefully a win can control that.”

The loss makes it three defeats in four for the reigning NBA champions, and Durant identified where the team can improve.

“We just need to see some shots going in,” he added. “I feel like we got some great looks but they didn’t go down.”

“When we win a basketball game hopefully that just changes things.”
