Watch: Draymond Green gets technical foul for shoving Harden in Game 1
Draymond Green needed just over a minute to commit his first technical foul in the Western Conference Finals.
Houston’s James Harden was being guarded by Golden State’s Kevin Durant in the first minute of Game 1 of the series. Harden drove on Durant and went to the basket for a layup, which he made. Green got the ball after it went into the basket and then gave a shove to move Harden out of the way.

Harden made both his layup and the technical foul shot, giving the Rockets a 6-0 lead.
What’s ironic is just 10 days ago, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was praising Green for his lack of technicals in the playoffs. He’s committed two since then.
