Warriors' Green will be on the court for this Finals Game 5

When Draymond Green was assessed a technical foul in the 3rd quarter of Game 4 on Friday night, it appeared as though he would be ejected for receiving his second technical of the game. His level of complaining wasn't anything out of the ordinary of what we often see out of Green, and probably wasn't enough to warrant an ejection for his second technical of the game. "So then I thought the second one Draymond was going to get kicked out, but they explained that the first one was on me".

Draymond Green walked right up and didn't take a step backwards - literally or verbally - in front of a dozen cameras and many more reporters packed into a tiny room, and his relaxed, wry grin underlined and emphasized everything he said. "I thought I had verbalized to the table that the technical foul was on Coach Kerr".

Someone asked Green if he noticed the earlier technical hadn't been called on him.

The reporter responded that he was looking at the box score, that had Green registered for two technical fouls.

What a freaky sequence. I don't know. But they played "Hit the Road Jack" and I didn't have to hit the road, so I didn't think that was that sharp. "And then all of a sudden you get slapped in the face".

Cavaliers fans once again heckled Green during the game, chanting "Draymond sucks". Understand you're too important.

"Yeah, they make me feel good. But still trying to figure out why did I get the second one".

Tyronn Lue, Cavaliers coach: "Mike Callahan told me that the first one they called was on Steve Kerr".

James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love know they aren't out of this yet - after all, they came back from a daunting deficit a year ago on the way to the city's first major team sports title in 52 years. That is, of course, if officials actually called it on Kerr. "I know Draymond is aware and that he wouldn't do anything if he had a technical".

Green said his suspension conversation with Myers is a moment "I remember like it was yesterday, I'll never forget it".
