Unraveling the case of Draymond Green and the disappearing technical foul

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35), forward Draymond Green (23), center Zaza Pachulia (27) and guard Stephen Curry (30) during the fourth quarter against the Cleveland Cavaliers in game four of the Finals for the 2017 NBA Playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena.

Jones said this kind of game - emotional, a little nasty, technical-laden - is how the Cavs need to play to continue their comeback in a Finals that is now 3-1 in the Warriors' favor.

John Gobble had called the technical foul on Kerr, but the official scorer did not correct the mistake.

His technicals - the one called and the one that wasn't - overshadowed his shooting and rebounding. It was a baffling call that confused everyone in the building, complicated by the fact that Green didn't appear to deserve the technical called on him in that third quarter at all.

The public address announcer said the technical was on Green, and it was listed in box scores distributed at the end of the first quarter and at halftime.

"I really don't pay that much attention - I don't pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland honestly", Green said. "But I thought I heard the announcer say that it was on Draymond".

That's because Kerr did hear it, and the announcer did announce the technical for Green. At the moment, Steve Kerr was also arguing. "I know officiating is tough, and but when you go review situations, they usually get it right". He waved his arms in frustration at an official after being called for fouling Kevin Love and was hit with the tech, which would have triggered an automatic ejection. "The table informed us it was his second technical foul, and [that he was] ejected".

"Obviously we have haven't felt this feeling walking off the court with a loss in a while, but we have done a good job of bouncing back and being resilient all year and obviously learning from all different experiences we have been through".
