Warriors' Green stays in Game 4 after technical foul fiasco
Unraveling the case of Draymond Green and the disappearing technical foul

Game 4 Friday was a physically demanding, emotionally draining 48-minute exercise that took almost three hours.

The 3rd quarter hits a boiling point, with both teams playing the physical and verbal game when this happens - Draymond Green picks up his second technical foul, which should have resulted in an automatic ejection.

A year ago for Game 5 of the NBA Finals, Golden State general manager Bob Myers sat alongside suspended forward Draymond Green next-door to Oracle Arena in a suite at the Oakland Athletics game.

Draymond Green said the officials "messed up pretty bad" after he avoided being ejected from the Golden State Warriors' game four loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. "We informed the table that it was not his second technical foul".

It's believed the bid is well short of the rumoured £78m that the Spanish and European champions want for the 24-year-old.

Now, fast-forward. With 6:18 left in the third quarter and the Cavaliers leading 99-85, Green was apparently assessed another technical foul after complaining about a call. Goble T'd up Kerr.

The scorer's table was even confused. Goble stepped up and accepted the blame. Referees, however, made a clarification saying that the supposed first technical foul on Green was actually called on Warriors coach Steve Kerr. In the moment, I thought I had verbalized to the table that the technical foul was on Coach Kerr. The odd part was the box score chalked up the technical on Green. He said he knew all along the first tech wasn't on him. "I'm a firm believer in (stuff) happens", Green said. "So then I thought the second one, Draymond was going to get kicked out, but they explained that the first one was on me". As an athlete, one of the best feelings is going into enemy territory and just silencing their crowd. Mega superstars LeBron James and Kevin Durant got into a heated jawing match.

"At the end of the day, the series is a little different". No team in the history of the National Basketball Association has come back from that big of a deficit. "So try to do whatever it takes to win".

Kyrie Irving talked about "some chatter in there, and that adds some extra motivation".
