“That time of the month for Dray”- Indiana Pacers bench tells Draymond Green ‘to take his bi**h a** outta here’ after another painful ejection, fans react
Draymond Green yelling at the referee
The Golden State Warriors were defeated yet again on the road on Wednesday, this time by the Indiana Pacers. After getting a fan removed the night before, it was Draymond Green‘s turn to be removed out of the court. Green was spotted exchanging words with a match referee as tensions mounted following Stephen Curry’s injury and the Warriors’ struggles.
Given their recent improvements, the Golden State Warriors entered Indiana hoping to continue their road trip with a win after falling short in Milwaukee the night before. The Warriors were severely defeated by the Pacers in terms of game objective and results, as tensions were high throughout the game. Draymond Green, the Warriors veteran, was the centre of attention when he ejected someone, none other than himself.
The Warriors star’s day ended quickly a night after a supporter was removed for making threatening remarks regarding his life. Green collected his second technical foul with 8:10 remaining in the game, and Golden State trailing the Pacers 106-94.
It’s unclear what sparked Green’s expulsion, but he had a few words for the officials before abruptly walking away while being accompanied by security. As he walked out of the arena, the Pacers bench was feeling the energy, and Isiah Jackson was seen saying: “Get your bitch ass outta here!” to Green.
The Indiana Pacers take care of business against the Warriors
Tyrese Haliburton scored 29 points and the Indiana Pacers made 16 3-pointers to beat the Golden State Warriors 125-119 on Wednesday night. Bennedict Mathurin added 24 points for Indiana, which routed the Warriors for the first time since 2017-18 and only the second time in a decade.
Haliburton returned from his lowest-scoring game with the Pacers by going 9 of 17 from the field and making five 3s. Indiana appeared to be on a roll after rising from an early deficit and hitting nine 3-pointers to spark a 47-point second-quarter assault that led to a 74-54 halftime lead. Myles Turner had 21 points and Buddy Hield had 17 for the Pacers, who improved to 15-14 on the season.
Stephen Curry led the Golden State Warriors but did not finish the game due to a left shoulder injury. Curry led the defending champions with 27 points in the first half but left with 2 minutes remaining in the third. The Warriors fell to 2-12 on the road after losing at Milwaukee on Tuesday night.
Golden State, which has lost four of its last five games, was led by Jordan Poole’s 20 points. The Warriors played without Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green scored a season-low one point in 27 minutes and was dismissed in the fourth quarter. Golden State is 14-15 on the season after losing all six away games versus Eastern Conference opponents this season.
Fan reactions to Draymond Green getting ejected
Twitter reactions to the ejection:
Draymond Green directed referees to summon security for a spectator sitting courtside near one of the backboards during the Bucks-Warriors game Tuesday night in Milwaukee. This is the same person who was ejected after what appeared to be a blowout game without Stephen Curry, despite the fact that the team is underperforming.
