Golden State Warriors stars Kevin Durant and Draymond Green were seen engaging in a heated exchange at the end of regulation before falling 121-116 in overtime to the L.A. Clippers on Monday.

It began when the Warriors had an opportunity to win the game with just seconds remaining in the fourth after overcoming a 14-point deficit. Green grabbed a defensive rebound and pushed the ball up the court with Durant visibly clapping for the pass.

Instead, Green fumbled the ball before the buzzer sounded and then exchanged words with Durant on the sideline with both players looking noticeably upset. However, neither spoke about the confrontation after the game, and point guard Shaun Livingston downplayed any issue.

"Just team spirit," Livingston said, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell. "Team spirit. Guys wanted a different outcome than what happened. Obviously, Dray had the turnover, guys might have thought they were open or wanted the basketball, didn't get it. Things happen like that in sports. But it was good to see some fire, some emotion."

Durant quickly fouled out of the extra frame as the Warriors couldn't complete the comeback without their top two scorers; Stephen Curry missed the tilt as he recovers from a groin injury.

Still, Durant finished with a 33-point triple-double while Green added six points, 14 boards, and three steals.
