Green suspended for Game 3 of the first round of the playoffs

The ‘defending champion’ Golden State Warriors are on the verge of elimination.

According to 『』, ‘The Dancing Bear’ Draymond Green (forward, 198cm, 104kg) of Golden State will be suspended for one game.

Green committed an unnecessary act of stepping on his opponent 안전놀이터Sabonis in the second game of the first round of the playoffs against the Sacramento Kings on the 18th (hereinafter Korean time). After being sent off, the key was whether he would be able to play in the third game.

On the 19th, reporter Shams Charania of 『The Athletic』 predicted that there might not be any other punishment other than a fine. It is because the NBA discipline has not been able to wield a cotton bat properly, and it has been too lenient towards superstars and key players. As a result, it seemed that Green was expected to receive other disciplinary actions other than suspension.

However, the NBA very suddenly suspended Green. As a result, Green will not be able to play in Game 3 of the first round of the playoffs to be held on the 21st. Golden State, which is in danger of being eliminated after losing the second game after the last game 1, will be driven to the edge of the cliff if it gives up even the 3rd game. Green, the core of the power on this day, declared himself unable to participate in the third game following the exit from the second game.

Golden State had a big difference in performance this season, both at home and on the enemy ground. In other words, if I won one of the first two games in the series and went home, I could have been aiming for a series win. However, the lead was not maintained in Game 1, and the atmosphere of the game and the series changed drastically as Green became more excited than necessary in Game 2.

This is the first time Golden Staten has started the first round on an away road since coach Steve Kerr took over. Not only that, but this is the only time he has given up the first two games of the series since taking the baton. Here, Green, the pillar of the team, committed an act that lacked partnership spirit and was unable to play in the third game. It is, in fact, on the brink of extinction.

Golden State has been very good this season, going 33-8 in 41 games played at home. However, they only managed to add 11 wins on the road. First and foremost, Golden State went 3-6 in 9 games this season when Green was away. This is because Green plays a very significant role in the team’s power. However, he was unable to play in the third game due to this suspension.

In many ways, unfavorable conditions were created for Golden State. It hasn’t been easy to maintain power this season, with Stephen Curry injured and Andrew Wiggins out. To make matters worse, Green completed his suspension in the playoffs with his own feet, casting a considerable cloud over Golden State’s advance to the second round. It is not easy for the defending champion to play this playoff.
