There is no love lost between Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green and Cleveland Cavaliers big man Tristan Thompson. The two squared off in Game 1 on Thursday, and Thompson was fined $25,000 after he argued with Green and smashed a ball into his face, connecting on a meek punch in the process.

After he was ejected, Thompson challenged Green, in typical fashion, to meet him elsewhere to continue their row.

When asked about the situation, Green said he wouldn’t meet Thompson outside of the arena given that he didn’t want to get suspended or fined. Green did say that in the offseason he was certainly open to the challenge.

Via Twitter:

Thompson was not suspended for his actions in Game 1, so we will get to see what kind of bad blood simmers under the surface as Game 2 gets underway on Sunday at 5 PM PST.
