Draymond Green, Bradley Beal get in scuffle, both get ejected
- Yvette Williams
For 13 minutes, Israeli NBA basketball player Omri Casspi of the Golden State Warriors, played his best game of the season against the Washington Wizards, receiving great praise from his coach, Steve Kerr.
Green's jersey was ripped to shreds in the scuffle.
What seemed to start as a run-of-the-mill National Basketball Association game got a jolt of controversy, and once again it centered around Golden State Warriors star and former Michigan State All-America Draymond Green.
After the referees conferred and reviewed the skirmish, both Green and Beal were hit with techs, but later the refs chose to eject both Green and Beal.
Down 10 points at the start of the fourth quarter, Golden State went on a 24-12 run to go up 111-109 - their first lead since midway through the first.

During a Wizards possession, Green blocked a Beal shot. Beal wrapped his hand around Green's face, and Green reacted by grabbing Beal's jersey. The players even fell into the front row underneath the Wizards' basket as they were surrounded by other players, officials, and fans at the game. The back of his uniform was torn from near his right shoulder down to his waist. Green has a long history of this type of behavior, especially when it comes to lashing out at star players of the other team. After a long review, Green and Beal were tossed.
The bad blood rippled through both lineups.
The Wizards led the defending National Basketball Association champions 67-53 at intermission.
"I don't know what I'm supposed to do if someone hits you twice", Green told ESPN as he left the locker room at halftime.
