Warriors' Green stays in Game 4 after technical foul fiasco


"I noticed the reaction by Coach Kerr and then assessed the technical foul", Goble said. With a coach or trainer, we just verbalize and at that time we should listen to the PA announcer to who it is on. "I take full responsibly for that".

Green was instead given a personal foul.

"I thought they called it on Draymond", Kerr said. I think everyone talks to officials.

Goble said he thought he had verbalized to the table that the initial technical was on Kerr, but said after watching the video that he should have done a better job with that. Green even egged them on, waving his arms as the noise grew louder and everyone expected him to head for the exits.

"When the technical foul was called on Draymond Green, we reported it to the table", said Callahan.

A year ago for Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Golden State general manager Bob Myers sat alongside suspended forward Draymond Green next-door to Oracle Arena in a suite at the Oakland Athletics game.

"No, I feel this is the game we've got to get", he said, "or it's over".

The Warriors "got us where they want us", James said. "But still trying to figure out why did I get the second one".

This is the way Green approaches the game. Iman Shumpert and Zaza Pachulia went to the floor in a scrum and Pachulia appeared to hit the wingman in the groin.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue was asked about the inconsistent officiating, but couldn't take the bait following a win.

There were seven technicals called in Game 4 between the two teams. One victory away, and no matter any National Basketball Association inspection of Friday night's altercations, the Warriors will have Green and an opportunity for a second championship in this Finals Trilogy.

Still, the Warriors are in command of this series, a potential clincher awaiting them in Game 5 on Monday. "I don't know. That was pretty bad".

He also has no problem taking on opposing fans, happily embracing the role of the player everyone loves to hate - so long as they aren't fans of the Warriors. Babers-Green was seen being held back by a friend of Green's. Angry, in-your-face discussions. Hard, physical play.
