distance The warriors lost from 119 to 104 To the Knicks at the Chase Center, Monty Ball of NBC Sports Bay Area worked as Paul Correspondent and spoke to Crew Chief Ben Taylor. Here’s how the short chat went:
Paul: Why was the second technical error Draymond Green assessed with 1:04 remaining in the second quarter?
Taylor: “Green received the second technical error due to the profanity that was taken to be directed at the official.”
Paul: “It looks like Steve Kerr, the Warriors’ coach, and a lot of the players were trying to tell you that Dreamond was addressing his teammates James Wiseman. Is that the explanation you heard?”
Taylor: “Yes, it was.”
Paul: Have you ever thought to retreat from the second technical error after hearing their explanation?
Taylor: “no we did not.”
It is understood that Green was stunned by Taylor’s answers.
Mark J. Spears of The Undefeated Team with Green, who gave a clear three-word answer.
Green told Spears, “Wow. Bold. Excellent.”
The Warriors are clearly not happy to kick Green out, and rightly so. They brought their case to the rulers to no avail, and in the end they were proven right. Green was not directing his anger at Butler but at Weizmann.
