Warriors' Green stays in Game 4 after technical foul fiasco

Share
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green

Green finished with 16 points and 14 rebounds but the Warriors still lost 137-116 to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

It was a insane scene that unfolded midway through the third quarter on the night the Cleveland Cavaliers denied the Golden State Warriors a chance to complete a ideal run through the National Basketball Association postseason with a 137-116 victory. Draymond Green needs to play in this Game 5. He slapped his hand in disgust and walked to the corner of the court near the Warriors bench.

The confusion began when ref John Goble called Green for a loose ball foul in the first quarter. Everyone thought he'd been ejected.

The wildly combative and fiery game had 51 personal fouls, seven technical fouls, one flagrant foul and a number of dust-ups.

So what happened? Apparently the first technical was actually on Steve Kerr.

It's not like you're going to get it for free. "I stayed there until the end, even if I was a little bit upset during the match". Adding to that, in his Grand Slam career, Kevin Anderson has saved 65.6% of the break points he has faced.

Midway through the 3rd quarter, Draymond Green was called for a technical foul after disagreeing with a personal-foul call and expressing his disapproval by waving his arm at an official. I think everyone talks to officials. "So then I thought the second one, Draymond was going to get kicked out, but they explained that the first one was on me". Durant absorbing a blow to the head from Kevin Love in the third quarter, then exchanging words with James.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue was asked about the inconsistent officiating, but couldn't take the bait following a win. None other than Warriors forward Draymond Green who was suspended for one game previous year in the finals. Instead, he stayed on the floor after officials announced that the technical foul was called against Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

Green was given a weak technical foul in the second half and thought he had been ejected before the officials corrected the mistake on the first-half technical at the scorers' table.

Realizing that they had called a second technical on such an important player, in such an important game saw them change their minds. And when you've got great teammates like I do who allow me to play with my emotions and be emotional when I'm talking to them, to use my emotions to the better for us, it's easy. He was 1-for-6 on 3-pointers and is shooting 25 percent from beyond the arc in the series, the continuation of a steady slide downward since he made more than half of his 3-pointers in the opening round against Portland.
