Due to the fact that Game 4 was played at Chesapeake Arena in Oklahoma City, Thunder fans did not hide their displeasure over Green’s actions. Many OKC fans held signs making fun of the incident and booed the 26-year-old forward every time he touched the ball.
In what is likely a combination of the Thunder’s defense and their home crowd’s energy, Green has scored just 12 total points in his past two games.
Game 5 will be played on Thursday night and it wouldn’t come as a shock if Adams were to wear a cup again to protect his lower parts for a second straight contest.
