Draymond Green’s chains banned NFL star Antonio Brown after he was kicked out of Grizzlies vs Warriors

The Golden State Warriors’ first round game against the Memphis Grizzlies saw their defenseman Draymond Green being sent off. The striker had a great game until the end of the second quarter.

Green tried to stop third-year Grizzlies forward Brandon Clarke from taking a close range shot. However, he ended up punching him in the face and dragging him down by pulling on his jersey.

Green was called for a flagrant foul with 1.18 minutes left on the clock, but upon review it was downgraded to flagrant foul 2, which led to his sending off.

Here’s what referee Kane Fitzgerald had to say about the incident:

“Upon review, the foul was updated to a flagrant foul penalty two. Draymond Green was ejected for the face roll, face impact, jersey tracking and ground throw.

That was it for Green, as he finished his game with six points, four rebounds, three assists and steals apiece, and one block in 17 minutes of play. His absence from the field put the Warriors in a tight spot as they were struggling to maintain their lead.

At the end of the game, won by the Golden State Warriors, Green channeled the actions of banned NFL star Antonio Brown.

The three-time NBA champion waited at the edge of the tunnel to congratulate the team. He shook and hugged each member as they made their way to the locker room.
