Warriors' Green will be on the court for this Finals Game 5

Warriors' Green stays in Game 4 after technical foul fiasco Draymond's mom tweets Game 4 was fixed

Like a heel in pro wrestling seeking heat from the crowd, Draymond Green grinned up at the angry fans, lifted his hands in the air and urged them to give him everything they had in the third quarter of Game 4 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors were called for twice as many fouls as the Cavaliers in the first quarter.

Of course, part of the reason the Warriors didn't win is because Green lost his temper in Game 4, hit LeBron James in the groin, earning a flagrant foul and one-game suspension.

Green is once again enemy No. 1 in Cleveland.

The public address announcer did announce the technical foul was on Green. Green sat in his vehicle in the parking lot and called Myers (the Warriors GM), telling him he had to sign Durant.

"Some of it was their ball movement and their ability to break us down from the perimeter, and some of it was us just not being ready to play and not ready to rotate, not helping each other fully", Klay Thompson said of the Cavs three-point barrage in Game 4. "Now who the real b-- if he gonna jump on the phone and call somebody to come join him", said "Undisputed" co-host Shannon Sharpe. Upset. You've got to get off the court. "It's like, 'Whoa.' You remember what can be, what can happen".

CLEVELAND - Draymond Green gets to play in this Game 5.

And after the game, he took a swipe at everyone in Believeland. Green sat in his vehicle in the parking lot and called Myers, telling him he had to sign Durant. "I thought I had verbalized to the table that the technical foul was on Coach Kerr". That's the hardest challenge, when you have that type of emotions, to channel it. But I thought I heard the announcer say, the PA announcer say that it was on Draymond.

"I don't pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland, honestly".

Yes, he will play in Game 5, and he will have Kevin Durant as his teammate, not Harrison Barnes, and yes the Warriors feel very good about those things and many other differences from previous year. Sure, it will be a tall task in Oakland with a motivated Kevin Durant trying to capture his first career title and playing like a possible Finals MVP. "They don't just lay down and die", Durant said.

Then when the questions ran out - and that nearly never happens in the NBA Finals, with such a high-profile player, after such a potential series turning point - Green stared at the cameras, shrugged, and suggested he could've handled dozens more.

But that was in Cleveland.

That's Green's style, and his flagrant-foul accumulation a year ago and his rapidly growing technical-foul count in these Finals are more evidence.

"Last year is last year, this year is this year", Kerr echoed. "He's confining his intensity in a more narrow lane, meaning sometimes he would spill over in areas". I don't think we came out with the focus level and intensity level that it takes to close out. And also perspective and experience.

So Green's words were the clarion call for Game 5, the bump-start to everything the Warriors will say and feel in the hours leading up to tip-off and throughout that contest ... which could and should end with them celebrating a championship for the second time in three seasons.
