Warriors’ Green not apologizing, he and Durant moving on

HOUSTON (AP) — Draymond Green isn’t apologizing for his part in a dustup with Kevin Durant that led to a one-game suspension by the Golden State Warriors.

Green says he and Durant have spoken and that they’re “moving forward” after the heated exchange between the players in Monday night’s overtime loss to the Los Angeles Clippers,

Speaking Thursday for the first time since the incident, Green went on to say “there’s no secret that I am an emotional player. I wear my emotions on my sleeve. I play with that same emotion. Sometimes they get the best of me. And (if) it doesn’t work to my favor I’m going to live with that.”

He added that the passionate way he plays the game has led him to much success and “it works in my favor to the good as my resume speaks and this team’s resume speaks more so than it doesn’t. So I’m never going to change who I am.”

Coach Steve Kerr confirmed that Green and Durant spoke, but refused to divulge any details.
