Warriors' Green stays in Game 4 after technical foul fiasco

At first, everyone thought he was ejected, because he had also been called for a tech at the 1:55 mark of the first quarter, and two techs sends you packing.

It didn't involve a punch to where the sun doesn't shine, but Draymond Green was at the center of the first controversy of the NBA Finals.

Doris Burke of ESPN went on broadcast to confirm that she spoke to the scorers' table.

"The procedure is to advise the table who the technical foul is on and with the player we give a number". The feisty contest reached a head in the third quarter when it appeared as though Green committed his second technical foul, which would have booted him from the game.

Later on broadcast, Mike Breen said he spoke with the referees during a game break.

"When the technical foul was called on Draymond Green, we reported it to the (scorer's) table", Callahan told a pool reporter. "The table informed us it was his second technical foul, and [that he was] ejected".

"They're fine, it happens every year", Green said, according to video captured by Sports Illustrated.

His technicals - the one called and the one that wasn't - overshadowed his shooting and rebounding. But in the end it wasn't enough to cool off the scorching-hot Cavs.

"Some things just never change, right?"

Referee John Goble issued a technical foul to Kerr for his protest. At that time, we did not do a very good job of listening to the P.A announcer, and we did not hear him announce it.

"I don't pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland, honestly", Green said.

"After calling the loose ball foul on Draymond Green, I noticed the reaction by coach Kerr and then assessed the technical foul", Goble said to a pool reporter.

Except, maybe not? Despite it going into the scorebook as a technical foul on Green, and being recorded by the NBA's own realtime play-by-play as a technical foul on Green, and being remembered by the announcers and fans and everyone watching the game as a technical foul on Green, when it came time for Green's summary ejection, suddenly the officials had it another way. Take a look at the full transcript of the interview with the officials below. The entire episode was unusual, as was much of the officiating during the game. "So I knew I didn't have a technical foul, but still trying to figure out why did I get the second one".

"Green was already working on that as he left Oracle Arena after that gutting Game 7 loss".
