Report: No additional punishment expected for Draymond Green kick

Draymond Green

After more kicking antics in a 132-127 streak-snapping loss to the Houston Rockets on Thursday night, no further punishment is expected to be administered to Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.

Green received a Flagrant 1 foul after flailing his right leg on an offensive rebound, hitting shooting guard James Harden in the face as he came down with the ball.

It was a highly emotional game for the undersized power forward, as he was hit with a technical foul earlier in the game for arguing a call with an official in the second quarter, once the Warriors were hit with three consecutive foul calls at the defensive end.

The tech was Green’s third of the year and his first for actually arguing with a referee. Head coach Steve Kerr received a technical foul following Green’s.

The Saginaw native came one assist shy of a triple-double, which he could have achieved if it weren’t for him fouling out in the second overtime. He posted a 20-point, 15-rebound, nine-assist line with two steals and a block in 47 minutes of playing time.
