Phoenix and Golden State quickly emerged as the NBA’s top two teams this season and held their supremacy for a while. But while the Suns have remained elite, Green and the Warriors have tailed off. Phoenix’s 107-103 victory in San Francisco on Wednesday showed the gap between the two teams (albeit partially because Stephen Curry remains sidelined). So, Green has some reason for frustration, and Crowder has some reason to gloat.
As the game ended – and beyond – Green and Crowder jawed with each other.

The best lines, as best as I could hear them:
- Green: “You joke too much.”
- Green after about a minute of talking: “There’s nothing to talk about, Jae.”
- Green (a Saginaw, Mich., native) to Crowder (who grew up near Atlanta): “You’re not like that. You from Buckhead, Jae. You from Buckhead. You from a nice neighborhood. It’s not like that.”
