But Green was listed as the recipient of the first-quarter technical on the official scoresheet, leading Cavs coach Tyronn Lue to question the officials during the game.
I want nothing more than for the Warriors to win this game and sweep, but if Draymond Green somehow hits the game-winning shot, after narrowly avoiding getting tossed - from techs on two questionable calls that will be scrutinized like the Zapruder film in the coming days - National Basketball Association fans are going to have a hard time laying off that "asterisk" talk.
It didn't matter in the end, at least not this time.
Except it wasn't actually his second technical foul.
Green finished with 16 points and 14 rebounds but the Warriors still lost 137-116 to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
However, after a long period of on-court confusion, it was determined that Green was not assessed a tech in the first quarter to begin with. Even he said that he thought the technical foul was initially on Green. The technical foul was a weak one, and probably shouldn't have been called, but it was.
The officials acknowledged after the game they did not handle the situation very well. The problem then worsened when the officials didn't catch the public address announcer saying it was called on Green. Again, this was kind of a weak technical foul call by the refs, but it was called. "I take full responsibility for that".
On Thursday, the Golden State Warriors forward called out the Quicken Loans Arena faithful after video surfaced of his mother, Mary Babers-Green, getting into a heated altercation with a fan and security immediately following Game 3.
Late in Game 4 a year ago, Green swiped at LeBron James' groin and was subsequently given a flagrant foul.
