The benches cleared quickly as the two teams tangled in a swirling melee, eventually resulting in Green’s ejection. Green also repeatedly ignored Warriors coach Steve Kerr’s repeated attempts to get him to release Gobert. Thompson and McDaniels were also ejected.

After the game, Gobert blasted Green for his actions and insisted that the Warriors star always finds a way to get himself ejected when Golden State forward Steph Curry is not playing.
