The Golden State Warriors played against the Charlotte Hornets in their recent game. They needed a victory in their win column because they have failed to win games consistently this season. But as we know, due to a late ejection of Warriors veteran Draymond Green, the tides turned towards the Hornets.
They ended up winning by just 2 points! Green has always been known for his passion for the game. But sometimes that passion is what costs him. In tonight’s game vs the Hornets, Green was ejected due to two technical fouls.
Meaning, he could have held his horses after getting his first technical foul. Instead, Green remained aggressive and got himself thrown out of the game.
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr on the ejection of Draymond Green
Following the heartbreaking defeat by the hands of the Hornets. Draymond Green didn’t attend the post-game conference. However, head coach Steve Kerr was there to answer the questions for the media. When asked about his thoughts on Green’s ejection, Kerr said:
“He crossed the line, that’s the main thing. We love his passion and his energy and we would not be the team we are without him. But that doesn’t give him license to cross the line — and he knows that.”
Like Kerr pointed out, Green has a huge history of getting too emotional in a game. This is not the first time that Green has been ejected this season. He was ejected once during the start of the season as well, which also resulted in the Dubs ending up on the losing side.
Following this defeat, the Dubs are now 16-15 so far and hold the eighth seed in the conference. Can they make a comeback in the second half of the season? Or should they give up chasing their dream to return to the NBA Finals?
