Bell declined to comment on the matter after the game. Kerr chalked it up to a misunderstanding—one they quickly put behind them.
"Total misinterpretation of something I said," Kerr said after the game, per Mark Medina of the Mercury News. "We cleared it up."
Two-time NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant—who has also had a heated sideline exchange this season—was among those spotted trying to help de-escalate the situation, as he attempted to calm Bell on the sideline.
"You got to stay focused on the game," Durant said of his conversation with Bell, per Medina. "We're all going to go through times throughout the NBA where we want to speak our mind a bit and will be frustrated about some things."
Bell remained in the contest to finish the blowout victory, ending the night with two points on 1-of-5 shooting in seven minutes.
