The Golden State Warriors defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 142-112 on Saturday night. With the win, they now hold a 2-1 series lead in their best-of-seven Western Conference semifinals showdown.
Unfortunately, the victory did not come without controversy.
The big one was obviously Ja Morant getting hurt, and all that came with it.
But a smaller issue arose midgame that largely went unnoticed until an eagle-eyed fan spotted it.
The incident largely speaks for itself:
Draymond Green upset with Steph Curry at the end of the half. Curry danced with the ball up top and it ends up drawing Draymond into a second illegal screen. Threw a seat cushion and went to locker room as Ja Morant hit halfcourter. Eleventh Memphis 3, but Warriors still up 7.

Steph was cooking and didn’t need a screen here. He’s gotta know when to set and when to clear out https://t.co/UhpPKOpWCp

Tensions tend to run high during games, and players who are exceptionally emotional like Green usually have their blood run the hottest.

More likely than not, he and Curry are fine now.
But it’s fascinating to see that no one is immune from Green’s ire. Not even the greatest shooter of all time.
