Draymond Green was already reviled in Cleveland. Next time he returns, he can he can expect things to get worse.
The strangest moment in Cleveland’s Game 4 win came in the third quarter when Green was hit with a technical foul. It was his second of the game, according to what had been announced and on the official score sheet, but the referees said the sheet was wrong, that the previous technical was on coach Steve Kerr, not Green. So Green stayed in the game. After the game, he was asked about the announcement in the arena, and he used it to fire a shot at the people of Cleveland.
Q: Did you notice the scorer’s table didn’t announce that the tech wasn’t on you?
Green: No, I don’t pay much attention. I don’t pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland, honestly. Don’t seem to be the sharpest people around. So whatever.
Green does love to talk. He does like to stir things up, on and off the court. He did that here.
If there’s a Game 6 Green is going to hear it in Cleveland.
But if the Warriors are going to avoid a trip back to Ohio and win this in five, Green is going to have to play very well Monday night.
