Golden State Warriors v Sacramento Kings - Game Two

Draymond Green has been the talk of the NBA after Monday night. The Warriors forward stomped Domantas Sabonis of the Sacramento Kings. The stomp heard around the world sparked a debate as to what actually caused the incident. In the replay, it looks as if Sabonis was holding Green's leg before the stomp. However, neither action is okay, and both were punished for their actions. Of course, Green got the brunt end of the deal, as he was ejected from the game. However, Green may avoid any other punishments he might receive.

NBA insider Shams Charania is reporting that Green is likely to avoid a suspension for his actions. "It is looking unlikely Warriors forward Draymond Green will be suspended for Game 3 vs. Kings after stepping on Domantas Sabonis when Sabonis grabbed his leg on Monday night," according to Charania's Twitter. The NBA avoided the incident from growing into a larger altercation. Green was seen in a heated discussion with a few Kings fans located behind the Warriors bench.

Draymond Green Must Avoid Future Altercations

Green has long been known for a short fuse on the court. Now the Warriors star has to keep his head straight for the rest of this series. One more slip-up could involve a suspension. Which the Warriors can't have, as they are already down 2-0. However, keeping Green on the court is now another thing head coach Steve Kerr will need to keep an eye on in this series. Regarding the incident, Sabonis has even shared his thoughts on Green's actions. Basically, the Kings star said there's no place in the game for what Green did.

The stomp will be talked about even when this series is over. However, if the Warriors are the team eliminated, the stomp will be even more scrutinized. The Warriors will have to overcome their biggest playoff hole in the Steph Curry era. But luckily for Golden State, the next game will be played at their place. Sacramento really put their home court to good use. Will Golden State fans do the same? Do you think Green deserved to be suspended? Let us know your opinion in the comment section.
