NBA Golden State’s Draymond Green will be banned from the next game after stomping on his opponent’s chest during a game.
The NBA announced on Twitter on the 19th (Korean time) that it had imposed a one-game suspension on Green.
As a result, Green will not be able to play in Game 3 of the first round of the 2022-2023 NBA Western Conference playoffs against the Sacramento Kings at the Chase Center on the 21st.안전놀이터
Green was sent off after stomping on the chest of Domantas Sabonis, who faced him in the same position, 7 minutes before the end of the away game in the second leg on the 18th.
During the rebound contest, Savonis fell and wrapped his arms around his head, and when his arms grabbed Green’s right leg, Green lifted his leg up and shook it off, then suddenly kicked Savonis.
Public opinion criticizing Green grew among basketball fans as the scene of Sabonis rolling on the court in pain was captured on a relay camera.
Green protested that Sabonis grabbing his leg was the problem.
In fact, at the time, Sabonis was pointed out for this move and received a technical foul.
After the match, however, Savonis revealed that he had no specific intentions, only to reflexively put his arms together to protect his head in the event of a fall and no panic.
Due to Green’s absence due to discipline, the ‘defending champion’ Golden State immediately took an emergency.
It is because they lost both games 1 and 2, so they desperately need to win the 3rd game.
Green averaged 6 points, 8 assists and 6.5 rebounds in two PO games, and his quick help defense helped hold down Sacramento’s offense.
Kuminga and Moody are expected to fill Green’s void, but they are all young players in their sophomore seasons and lack more ‘big stage’ experience than Green.
Golden State, who took the throne by defeating Boston 4-2 in the championship game last season, finished the regular season in 6th place this season and is playing the first round of PO with 3rd place Sacramento.
