Dahntay Jones, take notes. Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green doesn't take kindly to an opponent bumping into him while he's doing an interview.

Green put up 23 points, six assists and three rebounds in the Warriors' 106-98 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday. After the game, he took some time to talk to an ESPN sideline reporter.

That's when Jones, a Clipper, caught Green by surprise with a shoulder from behind. It was clear that Green didn't appreciate the bump, considering he stared down Jones for the next few seconds.

UPDATE: Tuesday, March 10

After Clippers coach Doc Rivers added his take, saying "I guess that tough guy in Golden State — I think the bump was too hard for him, clearly the way he reacted. I thought that guy was tough,” Green stated on KNBR Radio, "Cool story, Glenn. I'm done with that situation, man ... I don't have no reason to worry about what Glenn has to say."
