OAKLAND, Calif. — After missing the last 11 games for the
Draymond Green picked up his ninth and 10th technical fouls of the season Saturday night, leading to his second ejection from the Warriors’ win against Memphis.
Klay Thompson secured 21 points and was 5-for-11 from downtown. Kevin Durant chipped in 20 points, five boards and nine assists. Warriors power forward Draymond Green was ejected with 9:45 left in the second quarter. He picked up two technical fouls, which is an automatic ejection. The first technical came a minute and a half into the second when he argued with official Tre Maddox that a foul he was charged with was a clean strip. The second one occurred when he challenged Deyonte Davis at the rim and he was whistled for the foul.
Right after the play, Green was seen raising his right hand in disdain in the direction of referee Nick Buchert and the official quickly tossed him. Green walked off the court without further issues. It’s now Green’s 10th technical of the season and his second ejection. Rookie Jordan Bell started in place of Green in the second half and finished with 11 points.
Golden State doesn’t play again until Wednesday in Dallas.
