Last night the Golden State Warriors pulled off an impressive 18-point comeback victory against the Washington Wizards to win 120-117.

However, the main story of the night was the altercation between Draymond Green and Bradley Beal. During the second quarter, Beal grabbed Draymond by the neck and the two wrestled on the floor. Players from both sides jumped to stop the fight, and Klay Thompson ended up with a graze on his face from Kelly Oubre Jr.

When asked about the incident, Draymond Green had this to say:

“I don’t know what you’re supposed to do if someone hits you twice,” Green told ESPN. “Man, you’re taught as a kid not to allow that. What was I supposed to do? 

There’s a history with me and the NBA. That’s the only reason I can think of why I was ejected.”

Do you believe Draymond Green’s history with the NBA was the reason he was ejected, or was the ejection justified?
