The Warriors survive the most recent ejection of Draymond Green.

With the season about to end, the Warriors survive the most recent ejection of Draymond Green.

Draymond Green’s ejection in the first quarter of the Golden State Warriors’ 101-93 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night was a startling event. He got into a verbal altercation with the officials after taking exception at a referee’s call, which made them decide they had had enough of him and removed him from the court for the evening.

In this game that the Warriors had to win, they managed to hold on without him, but following his ejection, there was a heated exchange in the media that saw his teammate Steph Curry react with perhaps the most visceral annoyance I’ve ever seen him exhibit following a Green antics.

Those who have followed Green over the years are aware that he has been called the engine of the Warriors’ success, the ideal all-around player to balance the lineup alongside the Splash Bros, the winner of defensive player of the year, and the de facto offensive facilitator. When the Warriors play at home in Chase Center, he has the ability to incite Dub Nation into a frenzy and rally the soldiers in unfriendly terrain.

In addition, he is a well-known trash talker and tough player who frequently gets in the way of NBA referees, earning him suspensions and ejections.
