Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green became the first player in Chase Center history to be ejected from a game during the Warriors loss to the Utah Jazz.
Green, who returned to the lineup after missing five straight games because of a torn ligament in his left index finger, was ejected early in the fourth quarter after arguing a call. The play in question came with 8:28 left in the contest, as Green thought he had taken a charge from Jazz guard Mike Conley. Warriors’forward Green immediately got up and waved his hand in front of his face, disagreeing with the call. He was whistled for his first technical foul, then he picked up a second after continuing to argue with official Sean Wright.
“I disagreed with that call,” Green explained after the game. “And I’m never going to be OK with another grown man telling me, ‘Don’t talk.’If you feel like you got the call wrong, or right, you don’t tell me not to talk. I’m a grown man. I got my own kids. So that’s what happened”.
