Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Draymond Green is on the border of receiving an automatic suspension for technical fouls and trying to fight them.

Green was called for a technical foul during his Golden State Warriors’ 134-126 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night. Late in the second quarter, Green threw a ball at Russell Westbrook’s head following a Clippers basket.

Green was called for a tech for his actions, giving him 16 technical fouls on the season.

Green remained in the game and scored 8 points with 8 rebounds and 5 assists in 35 minutes in the loss.

After the game, Green said he expected the technical foul call to be rescinded.

“I expect something to change. I got one tech this year because a ref yelled at me and I said, ‘if I yell at you, I’m gonna get a fine.’ I got a tech for it. I think something will change.”

If his technical foul call does not get rescinded, then Green will be suspended for Friday night’s game at Atlanta.

Golden State is 36-34 entering Thursday and in the No. 6 spot in the West. They could use Green in every game possible going forward.

Last year, Green was able to get a 16th technical foul call rescinded to avoid a suspension. In the 2016 NBA playoffs, Green was suspended for accumulating too many technical foul calls.
