Anthony, Rockets to part ways

Anthony, Rockets to part ways

Kevin Durant didn't want to hear it, so he made sure the question wouldn't come up a couple of times.

Still, the question remains how this will effect the team going forward and the relationships between Durant, Green, and the organization entering this summer.

Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green said Thursday, November 15 (Friday, November 16, Manila time), he had settled his differences with teammate Kevin Durant and warned that the National Basketball Association champions would not "crumble" over their recent locker-room strife. Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports that Green even challenged his superstar teammate to leave, and that the Warriors. Luka's a great dude, and I think he's going to be a really good player.

Green and Durant were reunited on Thursday, and they appeared to have put the recent past behind them in the opening minutes.

Things fell apart quickly after that, however, with the Warriors toppling to the Rockets 107-86.

The defending champion Warriors expect to come out stronger after the Kevin Durant-Draymond Green feud.

Federal prosecutors accidentally disclose that WikiLeaks' Assange has already been secretly indicted
US prosecutors are gearing up for what they hope will be Julian Assange's day in an American court, according to a new report . But recently-ousted US Attorney General Jeff Sessions past year declared the arrest of Assange a priority.

In the closing seconds of regulation during Monday's 121-116 overtime loss on the road to the Clippers, Green secured a rebound and, with Durant calling for the ball, instead dribbled the length of the court into traffic and lost control as the Warriors failed to get a shot off. Durant was shown on camera visibly upset immediately afterward.

It'd be foolish to not mention the absence of two-time Kia MVP Stephen Curry (groin). Houston made 16 of 47 3-pointers. A day later, Durant told reporters that he and Green still hadn't spoken.

It wasn't the first time Durant and Green have been involved in a verbal altercation. The ripple effects from it will be very real and very expensive, one way or another.

The Rockets, who announced before the game that they were "parting ways" with 10-time All-Star Carmelo Anthony, have won three straight and six of their last eight games after starting 1-5 to reach.500 for the first time since they were 1-1.

Night one of that adjustment went pretty well.
