On Monday night was game two of the first round in the NBA Playoffs. The game featured the defending champs, Golden State Warriors, and the Sacramento Kings. Entering this game, Golden State was trailing 1-0 in the series which got the Kings their first playoff win since 2006. Now let’s get to the point. With around 7 minutes left in regulation, the Warriors had a slight lead of 7 points before a shocking turn of events took place. As the Warriors had possession, Malik Monk puts up a shot that bounces off the rim and there ends up being an altercation after the ball was rebounded. The Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis tumbles to the ground for the ball that was rebounded by the Warriors. As Green is trying to continue down the court, his leg is held by Sabonis who is still laying down on the court. Green’s reaction was nothing less than absurd.
Rightfully so considering that Green is not the most flexible on the court and it was the second time his leg was grabbed. It was just announced on Tuesday that Draymond Green will be suspended for game 3 in Golden State. Since the first game of the series, Draymond Green has had some mixed feelings about the Sacramento center Domantas Sabonis. Green says the refs just watch it happen and do nothing about it two times in a row. The bottom line is that both players were wrong for their actions but it’s never right to try to bring dirty intentions to the game as Sabonis brought.
