Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry was optimistic about the team’s path after teammates Kevin Durant and Draymond Green exchanged heated words in Monday night’s game against the L.A. Clippers.
Per Mike Medina of The Mercury News, Curry had nothing but positives to say about how the team was doing;
Steph Curry was asked pre-game about the last 24 hours. He smiled and said, "Everything's great!"

While the Warriors certainly have been playing well, it seems unlikely that everything is going perfectly in the locker room. The altercation between Draymond Green and Kevin Durant was so bad that the team chose to suspend Green for the Tuesday night game against the Atlanta Hawks, a move that is rarely seen in the league.
Still, the whole dust-up could just be severely overhyped. If the Warriors continue to dominate games, this will be a minor blip on the radar come playoff time.
Even without Green or Curry, the Warriors came together and earned a hard-fought win against the Hawks, improving their record to 12-3, the best in the Western Conference.
The Hawks battled to a three-point halftime lead, but the Warriors didn’t stay down for long and stormed back in the third quarter to take a lead they never relinquished.
The Warriors were led by 29 points out of Kevin Durant, who also chipped in six rebounds and three assists in 37 minutes.
The Hawks battled through a rough night from their star Trae Young, who only scored four points, to keep the game competitive to the last minute.
