Steve Kerr, Tyronn Lue Both Were Confused By Draymond Green's Technical Foul

Although Draymond Green might disagree - the Warriors forward did, after all, suggest that folks in Cleveland "don't seem to be the sharpest people around" - Cavs fans presumably can count to four, which means Golden State is one victory shy of their second National Basketball Association championship in three years.

After the game, he stoked the kindling. In the post-game media session, Draymond was asked about the taunting he received from the Cavs faithful, to which he responded by saying he doesn't pay attention to Cleveland people because they "don't seem to be the sharpest people around". Cleveland people ain't that sharp!

"After calling the loose ball foul on Draymond Green, I noticed the reaction by coach Kerr and then assessed the technical foul", referee John Goble told a pool reporter after the game. The moment changed that series.

Golden State would rather forget that monumental collapse past year, when Green's absence for Game 5 because of flagrant foul point accumulation helped swing the series.

That incident established Green's status as a villain in Cleveland.

Even though he scored 16 points in Game 4, his most in these Finals, it took him 16 shots to get there - more shots than either Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson.

The officials acknowledged after the game they did not handle the situation very well.

There were constant rowdy chants of "Draymond sucks" from the Quicken Loans Arena crowd Friday whenever Green was whistled for a personal foul. Green protested. Kerr protested. "I thought I deserved it". "When I say something, I thought about what I'm going to say before I say it". It was marked that way in the original box score too. Draymond Green, who finds emotional spots the way magnets find metal, was thought to have received a first-quarter technical, but it turned out the T was on Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

And nobody knows that better than Green.

Needless to say, Green was not afraid to call out the referees and overall game officiating that got out of hand.

She further added that to her, "marriage is not an important thing". "No one in his family has ever been divorced!" Actress Jessica Chastain has tied the knot.

But it didn't stop him from having some fun with the fans. Most everyone in the building, including those at the scorer's table, thought Green was the culprit. "With a coach or trainer, we just verbalize and at that time we should listen to the PA announcer to who it is on".

"I take full responsibility for that", Callahan said.

It was only one part of a confusing and emotionally charged third quarter.

Game 4 was the most physical contest of the series, with several hard fouls, and LeBron James and Kevin Durant drawing a double-technical for arguing with each other after a technical by Kevin Love. They can surpass the 2001 Los Angeles Lakers (15-1) for the best postseason record by winning Game 5 on Monday at Oracle Arena.

Nevertheless, the Warriors must hunker down and prevent the Cavaliers from getting back into the series with a second straight victory Monday night.

"When the technical foul was called on Draymond Green, we reported it to the table", said Callahan.

Green finished with 16 points and 14 rebounds but the Warriors still lost 137-116 to the Cleveland Cavaliers. "They are at home thinking about me". If the Warriors win Game 5, he's probably the Finals MVP.

"No. What's distracting is them hitting 24 threes". Bogut was injured in the game and missed the rest of the Finals.

"Maybe more measured", Myers said, comparing Green from past year to now. But this is a different team and a different era. "Obviously we haven't felt this feeling walking off the court with a loss in a while, but we have done a good job of bouncing back and being resilient all year and obviously learning from all different experiences we have been through. It's the way we play at our best". "We obviously know you can't just go home and expect to win".
