The Golden State Warriors are on the cusp on repeating as NBA champions but for Game 5, it’ll come with an extra obstacle. The Warriors will look to win the championship in front of their home crowd for the first time ever and it’ll be without their heart, Draymond Green in the lineup.
The versatile superstar has been accessed with a Flagrant Foul 1 for the incident with LeBron James which puts him at 4 flagrant foul points; this results in a one game suspension. For the Cavaliers, James was assessed a technical foul.
According to this screenshot by Marc J. Spears of Yahoo News, Kiki VanDeWeghe explains the league’s decision:
