Westbrook leaves bench, claps after Green ejected for throwing ball to official


OAKLAND – It’s been a night to forget for Draymond Green and his Golden State Warriors teammates.

Midway through the fourth quarter, trailing by 19 points Green got called for a moving screen. After the call, Green tossed the ball to Marat Kogut, the official who made the call and appeared to walk back down the court. Crew chief Ken Mauer saw Green toss the ball, didn’t appreciate the action and hit Green with the technical foul.

Warriors fans might not have been happy about the ejection, but one member of the Thunder bench seemed overjoyed about the turn of events. Russell Westbrook jumped off the bench and clapped Green off the court.

Because it was Green’s second technical foul of the evening, his night ended a bit earlier than expected. Green picked up his first tech at the end of the first half after chirping at officials.

Draymond Green is no stranger to the tech. After picking up two on Tuesday night, Green has 13 on the year. He’s now only three away from a one-game suspension.

Green wasn’t the only Warrior to lose his cool against the Thunder on Tuesday. David West, Steve Kerr, and Andre Iguodala all got in on the action in the blowout.
