Warriors' Green stays in Game 4 after technical foul fiasco

Warriors' Green stays in Game 4 after technical foul fiasco

As the Cleveland Cavaliers were beating the Golden State Warriors, getting a few of the big calls in their favor, Mary Babers, Green's mother, tweeted the following message.

Basically what happened was a tech was called on Green in the third and everyone thought it was his second and that he'd be ejected, but the officials claimed that a first-half tech that was called on Green was actually supposed to have been called on Steve Kerr. Green had previously been called for a technical foul with 1:55 remaining in the first quarter, and the second would have resulted in an automatic ejection. "I thought I deserved it".

In the first episode of "The Shop", LeBron says Gilbert "completely bashed me and disrespected not only me as an individual but disrespected my name". Then they had the chance to go back to Cleveland to close out but failed.

The first half tech just got changed from Draymond Green to Steve Kerr and is now on DeMarcus Cousins.

Green was given a flagrant foul in the final minutes of Game 4 a year ago and was subsequently suspended for Game 5. After a timeout, Breen relayed that referee John Goble had explained that the confusion arose from the fact that Green had also been called for a personal foul at the time. Some 51 fouls were called Friday night and 67 free throws attempted.

"It was just an incredibly physical game", Kerr said afterward.

What do you do after your team loses a pivotal close out game for the National Basketball Association championship? Emotions are what keeps this game alive, it keeps it going.

"Thank God I get to play on Monday (in Game 5), hopefully", he said. "That was obvious from the beginning".

Penguins shutout Predators to regain lead in Stanley Cup Final
If the Stanley Cup Final were played exclusively in Pittsburgh , it may have been one of the most lopsided series of all time . This was a different Pittsburgh team than we had seen in the series - and that included the wins in Games 1 and 2.

Now, the Cleveland Cavaliers know they can get in his head. So there was a lot of fight and there was a lot of intensity. The correction was not made until the end of the third quarter. "We do that, it's 16-0". There is just the hard painful slog of finishing off a very good team, or expiring in the attempt.

Zaza Pachulia punched Iman Shumpert in the testicles without any apparent effect, and the teams gathered angrily for several minutes.
