Green dribbled away the final possession of the fourth quarter without getting a shot up.

The Golden State Warriors have suspended Draymond Green for one game without pay for "conduct detrimental to the team" after the three-time All-Star got into an argument with Warriors superstar Kevin Durant following the team's overtime loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

The two players were seen arguing on the court and the confrontation carried into the team's locker room after the game, which reportedly included some teammates loudly confronting Green for his decision-making during the final play of regulation, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc J. Spears.

After the buzzer sounded and the players went to the bench, Durant yelled at Green for not passing him the ball under the basket.

He was among the players released to their provinces as coach Joe Schmidt took a smaller group to Chicago for their opening autumn worldwide against Italy.

Green can be a free agent in 2020, but Durant's sensitivity is well-documented, and it is clear that he was unhappy with how events played out on Monday night. Durant was seen clapping his hands, an apparent call for the ball. "You all are going to report what you want to report". "Team spirit. Guys wanted a different outcome than what happened".

Golden State (11-3) hosts the Hawks (3-10) at 10:30 p.m. ET.
