When the Warriors took on the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night at Moda Center, nearly everyone was focused on the Steph Curry-Damian Lillard showdown.

However, Juan Toscano-Anderson and Gary Trent Jr. might have started their own rivalry in the process. 

With a little over eight minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of a back-and-forth contest, Toscano-Anderson drew a charge call while Carmelo Anthony tried to pull up for a 3-pointer. 

However, it's pretty clear the call was a bit controversial. 

Toscano-Anderson and Trent immediately exchanged words after the call, and it didn't look friendly.

However, Toscano-Anderson's drawn charge call ultimately wouldn't be the one to decide the game. With less than a minute remaining in the game, Lillard hit a 3-pointer from distance with the shot clock set to expire. With just over six seconds left on the clock, the Warriors inbounded from the sideline, but Draymond Green was called for a charge of his own, with the referees deeming that Lillard established position.

That ultimately would seal the fate for the Warriors, who would fall 108-106. 

It was a heartbreaking loss for Golden State, and it's safe to say it's not one the team, Toscano-Anderson or Green will forget any time soon.
