While it's premature to say it looks like the empire is falling or anything like that, the Warriors are in the midst of some infighting with Kevin Durant and Draymond Green at the center of things.
As he dribbled over the half court line, it became clear that Green had no real plan on what he was going to do with the ball.
And as Marcus Thompson of the Athletic recently detailed, the verbal altercation between the two players started when Green shouted several obscenities toward Durant in the huddle.
Green was suspended without pay for the Warriors' game on Tuesday night against the Hawks. And Durant has said he doesn't want to be recruited.
As both players returned to the Warriors bench, they continued a war of words which turned ugly with Green shouting profanities towards his team-mate.
"With what was said, there is already no way Durant is coming back", one Golden State player reportedly told Thompson. Although the entire Clippers team made key contributions, it was Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell who made the most remarkable impact to lift the Clippers over Warriors in overtime.
Durant led the Warriors with 29 points.
"I think we'll be fine", [Steve] Kerr said. "We've got a long season ahead".
Durant has remained tight-lipped regarding his impending free agency decision, but has admitted he will not be taking another cut-price deal.
Durant is a free agent after this season, and that might be weighing on the rest of the Warriors.
However, at 30 years old, Durant wants to sign a max contract and a number of teams such as the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers and LA Clippers are primed to make a move.
