OAKLAND — Warriors’ coach Steve Kerr wants the NBA to rescind the technical foul that Draymond Green was assessed in the fourth quarter of Game 3 of Western Conference Finals against Houston.
It happened with 6:49 left, when Green held Trevor Ariza as he drove to the basket, and then apparently tried to hold him up as he fell to the ground. Green then said something to Ariza, who responded by shoving Green.
They were assessed double-technical fouls on the play — but Kerr didn’t think that was the right call.
“I thought it was unfair, but we’ll take it up with the league,” Kerr said. “He committed a hard foul, but he held Ariza up and didn’t allow him to get hurt. And then Ariza shoved him. It didn’t seem like a double-technical to me. So we’ll take it up with the league and we’ll see what happens.”
It was Green’s third technical foul of the playoffs.
Kevin Durant said he didn’t quite know what happened on the play. He chalked it up to two fiery guys who want to win.
“They both got enough money to pay for that,” Durant said.
