Warriors' Green will be on the court for this Finals Game 5

The officials lost control of the game, which featured at least one uncalled groin shot and a bunch of other blows.

"Some things just never change, right?"

Green said he knew all along the first one wasn't on him.

A year after his antics on this floor led to a suspension for Game 5 that began the Warriors' historic collapse, the fiery forward was again in the middle of the night's strangest scene. He waved his arms in frustration at an official after being called for fouling Kevin Love and was hit with the tech, which would have triggered an automatic ejection.

In Friday's Game 4, Green appeared to be on his way to being ejected after picking up what seemed to be his second technical foul of the game.

If Green could somehow summon the 2016 Game 7 version of him, the one who made six 3-pointers, scored 32 points and had 15 rebounds and nine assists, Kevin Durant and a healthy Curry could probably take it from there.

Green has tried to play to the crowd, egging on the fans when they start to jeer him. even though afterward he claimed, "I don't pay attention to anybody in Cleveland, honestly. Don't seem to be the sharpest people around".


LeBron James has represented his country at the Olympics three times and come home with three medals, two gold and a bronze, but he draws the line at three-on-three basketball which will be introduced at the next Summer Games. He said he knew all along the first tech wasn't on him. "After looking at the video, I did not verbalize to the table, and looking at the video, I should have done a better job of making sure that the table knew the technical foul was on Coach Kerr".

Naturally, Green argued when he got the technical in the third quarter, but he was well aware that it was only his first.

The Warriors lost Game 5. The problem then worsened when the officials didn't catch the public address announcer saying it was called on Green. "We informed the table that it was not his second technical foul".

"That's false", Durant said. "I take full responsibility for that".

"He knows he's got to keep his composure", said teammate David West, who believed assistant coach Mike Brown helped settle Green late in Game 4.

During Friday's edition of "The Undisputed", Shannon Sharpe was having none of that nonsense as he couldn't understand why Draymond would reach out to a current player and recruit them to join his squad because they can't handle LeBron James.
