Watch: Draymond Green called for absurd foul on boxout
Draymond Green was called for an absurd foul on a boxout of Clint Capela in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals on Friday between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors.
Houston and Golden State were tied at 68 in the third quarter when Chris Paul missed a jumper from the free throw line. Green was boxing out Capela in the key to set up for the rebound. He was called for a foul after Capela jumped and fell to the floor because his legs were taken out.
How is this a foul on Draymond? He literally got low to box out Capela. Huh? pic.twitter.com/Tmt4yTU0Tn

The officials must not have seen what actually happened and probably just reacted to seeing Capela on the ground, figuring Green did something wrong. If that was the case, then Green’s reputation probably did him in.
