Update: Draymond Green suspended for Game 3
NBA: "The suspension was based in part on Green’s history of unsportsmanlike acts"
Money quote: “The suspension was based in part on Green’s history of unsportsmanlike acts.”
NBA Executive VP Joe Dumars tells ESPN on Draymond Green punishment: “Here’s what it came down to: Excessive and over-the-top actions, conduct detrimental and a repeat offender. That’s what separates this where you end up with a suspension.”
Steve Kerr could go a ton of directions to replace Draymond Green in starting lineup *Jordan Poole (juice the offense) *Gary Payton II (juice the defense) *Jonathan Kuminga (activate him with bigger role) *Donte DiVincenzo (regular spot starter) *Moses Moody (big role last night)
Kings reported Sabonis was questionable because of a sternum (chest) injury, presumably due to “The Stomp”. Others noted that Sabonis ended the game with a flying dunk
and then chest-bumped his own teammate, which makes one wonder exactly how injured that chest can be.
