HOUSTON -– Draymond Green may be in trouble with the NBA.
Green as the ball was being inbounded for the final play of the Warriors’ 97-96 loss to the Rockets executed an impressive takedown of Michael Beasley, tossing the Rockets forward to the floor just ahead of the final buzzer.
There was no call by the officiating crew, but the NBA noted in its Last Two Minutes Report that Green indeed had committed a foul – and it may be considered flagrant.
“Green wraps Beasley and throws him to the ground on the inbounds play,” the report states. “Basketball Operations is reviewing the contact.”
The conclusion upon initial video review is that the officials –- Scott Foster, Mark Ayotte and Tom Washington -– made an “Incorrect Non-Call” on the play.
The most likely discipline, if any, is that Green would face a fine.
