Warriors star Draymond Green suspended for Game 5
OAKLAND, CA - Golden State star Draymond Green has been suspended for Game 5 of the NBA Finals after the league assessed a Flagrant 1 foul from his scuffle with Cleveland's LeBron James.
The NBA announced the retroactive decision Sunday, issuing James a technical on the fourth-quarter play Friday in which the two tussled and exchanged words.
Green has been on the cusp of trouble for much of the postseason. This is his fourth flagrant foul, which resulted in the automatic suspension. He also has five technicals and was fined $25,000 for kicking Oklahoma City's Steven Adams in the groin during the Western Conference finals.
The Warriors lead the series 3-1 with a chance to clinch their second straight championship at home in Oracle Arena.
Game 5 of the Finals airs on WBRZ Channel 2 Monday night. Coverage begins at 7:30 p.m. WBRZ News 2 at 10 will follow.
