Draymond Green suspended for game-3 for stomping on Sabonis

Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green suffered a suspension for Game 3 of their NBA playoff series against the Sacramento Kings following his incident with Domantas Sabonis.

Although there were reports that Green was unlikely to take this disqualification for his actions in Game 2, the NBA ultimately decided to punish him for it.

Just as a reminder, in the fourth quarter of the aforementioned game, Green and Sabonis came into contact following an action to retrieve the ball. Sabonis was pushed by Klay Thompson and fell, inadvertently holding Green’s legs. In response, Dray raised his right leg and continued by stomping on Domantas’ chest. The Kings’ long man writhed in pain and had to undergo X-rays to determine if he had suffered any injuries.

In a statement, the NBA explained that Green’s “history of unsportsmanlike acts” conditioned the decision.

Golden State Warriors wing Draymond Green has been suspended for one game without a fine for stomping on the chest of Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis, it was announced today by Joe Dumars, Executive Vice President, Head of Basketball Operations. The suspension is based in part on Green’s history of unsportsmanlike acts.
