The Golden State Warriors took a 3-1 series lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers last night thanks to a 108-97 win at The Q Arena.
However, in a series that has been peppered with players squaring up and tensions threatening to boil over, things came to a head last night as Draymond Green and LeBron James got up close and personal.
The two All-Stars tangled up in the fourth quarter with just three minutes left in the game and it looked like Green appeared to hit LeBron below the belt with his arm, at least he tried his best to. After the game, James was outspoken when talking about the Warriors big man.
Speaking to reporters after the game four loss, LeBron said that he felt Green took things too far, stepping over the line.
"Draymond just said something that I don't agree with," James said, via ASAP Sports.
"I'm all cool with the competition. I'm all fine with that, but some of the words that came out of his mouth were a little bit overboard, and being a guy with pride, a guy with three kids and a family, things of that nature, some things just go overboard and that's where he took it, and that was it."
While talking about the potential low blow Green tried to deliver, James put the onus on the NBA to do something about it.
"It's not my call," he said. "That's the league office. They'll take a look at it. We all saw it in the locker room. You know, like I said, as a competitor, I love going against Draymond, and I'm all about going out there and leaving it out on the floor."
"But when it gets a little bit more than what it should be, that's what caused me to have words with him."
