Warriors news: Draymond Green gets 13th technical foul against the Thunder

New, comments

Draymond Green was ejected in the fourth quarter of a horrible game against the Thunder.

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Golden State Warriors Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Draymond Green was ejected after picking up his league-high 13th technical foul of the season in the midst of the Golden State Warriors’ blowout loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday.

Green earned the ejection after he nonchalantly threw the ball out of bounds in the direction of the referee during the fourth quarter when the outcome of the game was no longer in doubt -- TNT commentator Reggie Miller, and noted trash-talker, dubbed it a “soft toss”.

Green’s first technical foul occurred right after the first half ended, while apparently complaining about contact that caused bleeding from his mouth.

NBA players are allowed 16 technicals during the regular season before earning an automatic suspension, which means Green is inching closer to the limit while the Warriors are in the middle of what could be a tense race for the top seed in the Western Conference and/or NBA overall.

Green’s third ejection is second in the league for the season behind teammate Kevin Durant, who has four ejections on 11 technicals.

Russell Westbrook remained classy throughout.
