Draymond Green ejected in 2nd half for Golden State Warriors



PHOENIX -- Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was ejected from Tuesday's game after receiving a Flagrant Foul, Penalty 2 in the second half against the Phoenix Suns.

The foul occurred with 8:23 left in the third quarter when Green swung and hit Phoenix's Jusuf Nurkic in the head while defending him.

At first, while Geen's back was turned to Nurkic, he repeatedly lightly held Nurkic off of him. Eventually, Green turned around and hit Nurkic in the head with a closed fist.

This was Green's third ejection of the season, tied for the most in a season in his career.
