After the game, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr stated that he felt Green was taking up for his teammate.
“There is no way Klay should have been ejected. That was ridiculous,” Kerr said. “I was upset about that. As far as the Draymond piece of it, Rudy had his hands on Klay’s neck. That’s why Draymond went after Rudy.”
Green was also ejected November 11 during Cavalier’s game after receiving a second technical foul for pushing Cavs guard Donovan Mitchell.
