After last night’s game which went without much criticism of the refs, Draymond Green of the Warriors spoke up about how the bad officiating has been blown out of proportion.
“I think both teams just realized what the hell was going on the last two days,” Green said according to ESPN. “You can’t really turn a blind eye to anything in today’s day and age, with social media and all these things. So everyone was aware of all the talk about officiating and about foul calls — come out and play the game. And I think both teams did a great job of that.”
“They weren’t complaining about many calls, we weren’t complaining about many calls, because it’s kind of embarrassing for the game of basketball, how much has been talked about, about fouls and officiating. What about beating your man? What about stopping your man? No one talked anything about schemes the last two days. It’s all been about foul calls. I think both teams were locked in on coming out and playing the game to the best of their ability. You have to give credit to both clubs, both teams did that.”

This series hasn’t been great from a fan’s perspective.
Hoping it will get better when Harden returns home.
The Warriors currently have a 2-0 lead in the series as Game 3 will be played on Saturday in Houston.
