Draymond Green knew it was coming, as his reputation precedes him.
As expected, things got a little heated on Monday when the Golden State Warriors came to the Heartland to visit the Oklahoma City Thunder.
After all, the wounds are still fresh in the Sooner State from Kevin Durant bolting the Thunder for a chance to play with the Warriors - the team that knocked OKC out of the Western Conference Finals a year ago.
Although Durant was not playing because of a knee injury, there is obvious venom between these two teams.
Then, on the morning of the game, stories trickled out about how the Warriors were upset the Thunder hadn't done more to make Durant's first visit to OKC a little more pleasant in February.
It set the stage for fireworks, although a big early lead for the Warriors took a little wind out of the game.
But just before halftime, things got turned up a few notches.
That's when Warriors star Stephen Curry and Thunder backup point guard Semaj Christon got in a scuffle as they were getting in position for a jump ball late in the first half.
It ignited a bit of a fracas, with Thunder star Russell Westbrook and Green also joining in.
Curry, Christon, Green and Westbrook were all assessed technical fouls on the play.
However, a closer look at the video shows Green was probably the least aggressive during the scuffle than the other players that were given a 'T.'
When asked about it after the game, Green was in agreement with the questioner about his role - or lack thereof - in the incident.
(It's worth noting that we don't know what was said while all this was happening. Green's mouth has brought him some trouble in the past, and maybe that happened here.)
Here's what Green had to say after a reporter said he didn't seem as involved as other players.
"I'm happy you think the same thing I think," Green said. "Jesus Christ. I don't know. Nothing surprises me at this point when it comes to anything like that. I actually knew it was going to happen to be honest with you. I didn't actually do anything, but I knew it. If I'm anywhere in the area, it's expected."
It all ended up well for Green and the Warriors, though, as Curry knocked down a 3-pointer to end the first half with a big lead, en route to an easy 111-95 victory.News Now - Sport News
