NBA's Warriors suspend Green without pay

The Warriors are widely presumed as National Basketball Association title favorites and their most formidable opponents might be ... the Warriors.

Warriors All-Stars Kevin Durant and Draymond Green got into a heated exchange at the end of regulation last night.

Green will be benched without pay as the Warriors host the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday.

It should be noted that Draymond and Durant have had combustibility with each other before, and that it didn't stop the Warriors from winning the previous two titles.

Kevin Durant clearly wasn't happy on the floor as he watched Green squander the Warriors' chance to tie the game, and that carried over to the team's pre-overtime huddle.

In any event, this is all very interesting to watch. Green also reportedly challenged Durant about the two-time Finals MVP's impending free agency.

The organization spent Tuesday dealing with the aftershocks of Monday night's confrontation, while working through the issues involving the team's dynamic, according to league sources.

The Warriors closed the fourth quarter at Staples Center with an 11-0 run and had a chance to win in the final seconds, tying the score at 106-106. Durant was seen clapping his hands, an apparent call for the ball. When the game is on the line, Durant is at his best. "You all are going to report what you want to report". The altercation did not get physical, but Green's vigorous defense of himself helped increase the volume in the room.

"Obviously, Dray had the turnover".
