Kevin Durant, Draymond Green Jawing Again, Footage Captured

The Golden State Warriors dropped a 109-106 overtime loss to the Sacramento Kings but most took note of yet another Kevin Durant and Draymond Green drama. "This team is full of fight, full of heart and we showed it tonight".

Sacramento guard Arron Afflalo was back after missing Friday night's 105-103 home loss with a stomach virus.

Consistently inconsistent is the best way to describe the Kings. In the last two weeks they have now beat both the Cavs and the Warriors while losing to the 76ers and the Suns. "We got what we deserved", said Kerr after the game. It's an 82 game schedule, and as Green mentioned after the game these are dog days, so an occasional weak performance is bound to happen. They compete, but often times they make mistakes down the stretch that prove costly. "That's how you become consistent".

Against the Warriors, Sacramento kept the game close from start to finish in one of their more complete defensive games.

It was the Kings who came out on top after Stephen Curry botched a wide-open layup that would've given the Warriors the lead with less than four seconds left in overtime.

Cousins had 32 points on 13-30 from the field and 6-6 from the line, 12 rebounds, including three offensive boards, and nine assists. "There are plenty of things that we could pick apart, but for tonight, I'm simply choosing to celebrate the rare gift of a positive night for Kings fans". During that time, the veteran signal caller has averaged 5.3 points, an even two rebounds and 1.8 assists across 17.6 minutes per contest. It was all hands on deck.

"The multiple efforts is what gets it done", said Kings coach Dave Joerger. "Second night of a back-to-back for us and guys competing and staying together and being rewarded for staying together and battling through". After rocking back and forth for a few moments, Green walked to the locker room with a slight limp.

The Kings (20-31) were clearly more in need of the victory than the Warriors, having lost three straight and four of their last five.

The ejection was the first of Kerr's head coaching career and came at the same arena (Sacramento's Golden 1 Center) where Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton, Kerr's former lead assistant, had his first career ejection earlier this season, per Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee. He did not score a field goal until eight minutes into the second quarter.
