Draymond Green called for technical foul during Game 5, near suspension
Draymond Green had an emotional outburst during Game 5 of the NBA Finals that led to him being called for a technical foul.
Green generally wears his emotions on his sleeve. However, he had been better in recent games keeping them in check as to not draw a whistle from the referees. That wasn’t the case on Monday with his Golden State Warriors facing elimination against the Toronto Raptors.
Earlier in the game, Green was called for a foul he did not agree with. After picking up a foul when Kyle Lowry went up for a shot in the second quarter, Green voiced his displeasure and reacted poorly, leading to a tech being called.

The tech was Green’s sixth of this year’s NBA playoffs. One more technical foul in the playoffs would trigger an automatic one-game suspension.
