Marquese Chriss of the Golden State Warriors is pleading for referees to do better. The 23-year-old big man, who's recovering from a broken leg, was one of many who were dumbfounded when his teammate Draymond Green was ejected in the opening half of their game against the New York Knicks on Thursday.

Green was called for his second technical foul after he was heard screaming at his teammate James Wiseman. The officials thought the forward was jawing at an opponent and decided to T him up, resulting to an early end to his evening.

Chriss, for obvious reasons, didn't like the call. He took to Twitter to call out the referees' mistake.

It was a classic case of Green being a victim of his own reputation. The former Defensive Player of the Year has made a name for himself as one of the loudest characters on the court which usually gets in the nerve of the officials. Though he was clearly yapping at the young Wiseman, the referees mistakenly thought he was trash-talking once again, which earned him his first ejection of the season.

It's hard to argue against Marquese Chriss, who hasn't played since December 26. It was a clear blunder by the officials. The call, however, stood and Green was disqualified from the game after playing for only 17 minutes. He finished with three points and eight assists.

With Draymond Green sent packing, the Warriors lost their defensive anchor and got handily beaten by the visiting Knicks, 119-104, preventing them from nailing a third consecutive win.
