Warriors' Green stays in Game 4 after technical foul fiasco

Draymond Green gets in the mix in Game 4 against Cavs

Last year, the Golden State Warriors could only helplessly watch as they Cleveland Cavaliers stormed back from a 3-1 series deficit to win the championship in Game 7 at Oracle Arena.

But here's what happened.

Green never left the floor after receiving his "second" tech and his explanation was that he knew it was his first of the game.

Green now has four technical fouls in these playoffs and is three away from a mandatory one game suspension.

Making matters worse was the fact that the third-quarter technical call on Green was a very, very controversial call.

This is eerily familiar territory.

Needless to say, Green was not afraid to call out the referees and overall officiating of a game that got out of hand as highlighted by barking between Kevin Durant and LeBron James after the Warriors' star suffered a knock to the head courtesy of Kevin Love, the exchanging of pleasantries after Zaza Pachulia appeared to land a groin shot on Iman Shumpert and finally, constant displeasure with foul calls. "We informed the table that it was not his second technical foul".




"One quarter, each possession being huge for us, because that can make or break a team". "But still trying to figure out why did I get the second one". "I don't pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland, honestly". Either way, Green wasn't thrilled with it, saying he got no explanation for why he received the tech in the first place.

He was there - in an interview room across the hall from the Warriors locker room at Quicken Loans Arena on Friday, about an hour after the Warriors' Game 4 loss to the Cavaliers to narrow their Finals lead to 3-1 - and he had no desire to be anywhere else.

Now while you argue about the proper ratios between these six factors, we will remind you that in the wake of Cleveland's richly merited 137-116 victory Friday night, there is a Game 5, it is Monday night, and the game officials will be Joey Crawford, Joey Crawford and Joey Crawford.

"Last year is last year, this year is this year", Kerr echoed. They made a bunch of tough shots, but we not sharp defensively. "So our mindset is try to go up there and get one".

The All-Star forward said after the game that he knew the first technical was not his. We obviously know you can't just go home and expect to win. "I mean, they be at home thinking about me". And at the end of the day, the series is a little different.

It played a huge role in Game 4 where the Cavs were concerned. Over the past three years since James returned from Miami, the Cavs have handled injuries, constant scrutiny, drama - much of it self-inflicted- and even a midseason coaching change.
