Warriors will look to close out the series without Draymond.
The NBA has officially announced that Golden State's Draymond Green will be suspended for Game 5 of the NBA Finals for hitting LeBron James in the groin during Game 4.
Upon the league's review of the play, Green was assessed a Flagrant 1 for his actions which is his fourth flagrant of the post season- thus the automatic suspension.
The Warriors have only played without Draymond in one game this season, a loss to the Nuggets back in January.
Game 5 will take place tomorrow night at 9pm with the Warriors having an opportunity to close things out in a "Gentleman's Sweep." Draymond has arguably been the MVP of this series so far so it will be interesting to see how Golden State handles things on Monday night.
Stephen A., your thoughts?
I am DONE with the NBA on this. Draymond Green suspended? Hiding behind a Flagrant 1. This is some straight BS. Absolute TRAVESTY!— Stephen A Smith (@stephenasmith) June 12, 2016
