Draymond gets tech after chippy incident with Grant Williams

Warriors

It wouldn’t be a Warriors playoff series without Draymond Green being involved in a chippy play. 

In Game 2, it took several minutes into the first quarter before Green and Celtics forward Grant Williams got into it a little bit. Williams was whistled for a foul when he was tangled up with Green while Steph Curry had the ball at the top of the key.

The referees called the foul on Williams despite Green running him over.

After the play, Williams and Green engaged in some light shoving. Then, Green was whistled for a technical foul, his fourth technical of the playoffs.

It’s early in the series, but with the Warriors entering Sunday down 1-0 to the Celtics, Green started the game aggressively. Perhaps it wasn’t entirely surprising that he was involved in an early incident.
