CLEVELAND – Draymond Green received his second technical foul, per the official box score. The Cavaliers’ announcer declared him ejected. Green sarcastically called for more noise from Cleveland fans as if he were giving a final sendoff.
Yet, the Warriors forward remained in the game.
Green and Golden State coach Steve Kerr were simultaneously arguing a call in the first half when refs called a technical foul. It wasn’t entirely clear on whom, though my guess was Kerr. The scorekeeper marked Green.
Either way, for a player who blamed himself for getting suspended and the Warriors losing last year, Green hasn’t shown much restraint tonight.
