SAN FRANCISCO — Klay Thompson and Draymond Green were ejected from the Warriors game against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night following a heated altercation with Jaden McDaniels.
Thompson and McDaniels got in a shoving match two minutes after tip-off when Thompson put a hand on McDaniels on a Minnesota miss and McDaniels fired back by pulling on Thompson’s jersey, ripping it.
Both teams came into separate the two. That’s when Green entered the fray and grabbed Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert and put him in a headlock, pulling him away from the scrum. Green was issued a Flagrant 2 foul and Thompson and McDaniels were issued double technical fouls, all were ejected.
This is Green’s second ejection of the year, his first coming in the Warriors’ loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers at home on double technical fouls.
Already without Steph Curry due to a knee injury, the Warriors played on without their Big 3. Tuesday’s game is the Warriors’ second in-season tournament game and first at their home court.
