Shaun Livingston downplayed the heated exchange between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green that carried into the locker room after Tuesday's game.
"Just team spirit," Livingston said. "Guys wanted a different outcome than what happened… guys might have thought they were open or wanted the basketball, didn't get it… it was good to see some fire, some emotion." Apparently players were angry that Draymond didn't own up to his mistake and was "forcefully" defending himself instead. How quickly the Warriors crumble without their leader, Stephen Curry, who they have a significantly worse record without. We heard reports after last season that there were issues, but the Warriors still won the title. There is too much talent in Golden State for them to lose even if there are issues, but don't expect many easy victories without Curry.
