OAKLAND, Calif. — Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green is suspended for Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday night after he was assessed a flagrant foul 1 by the league for his actions in Game 4.
The play in question came with less than three minutes left in Golden State’s 108-97 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, when Green and LeBron James got tangled. James stepped over Green after the Warriors forward fell to the court, and Green swung his arm and appeared to make contact with James’ groin area. James immediately turned around, and the two players went chest-to-chest as play continued.
The NBA called Green’s action a “retaliatory swipe of his hand to the groin” of James.
