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.

Stephen Curry has officially earned his second consecutive MVP award following a historic campaign that saw his Golden State Warriors win an NBA record 73 games. In addition, he became the first unanimous winner in the league’s 61-year history, earning all 131 first-place votes.

Kawhi Leonard edged LeBron James for second place on the list. Russell Westbrook finished fourth and Kevin Durant was fifth.

Usually, even the most obvious MVP winners don’t earn a unanimous honor because there are a few contrarians that vote for someone else. In 2013, a single writer picked Carmelo Anthony over LeBron James for the honor, robbing James of a unanimous victory.

That did not happen this year, though. Instead, six different players earned second-place votes.
