In a surprising turn of events, Tuesday night’s face-off between the Golden State Warriors and the Minnesota Timberwolves took a heated turn as Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, and Jaden McDaniels were all ejected a mere two minutes into the game. The incident, marked by a jersey-tugging scuffle and a dramatic chokehold, unfolded before a single point was scored, setting the stage for a contentious matchup.
The Altercation Unfolds
Thompson and McDaniels found themselves entangled in a physical altercation, exchanging jersey pulls and throws on the court. Attempting to intervene, Timberwolves’ Rudy Gobert played the peacemaker role. However, out of nowhere, Green rushed in and escalated the situation, grabbing Gobert from behind and placing him in a chokehold.
The aftermath of the scuffle left Thompson’s jersey resembling a deep V-neck, a visual testament to the intensity of the altercation. The physicality displayed in the opening minutes of the game overshadowed the athletic prowess expected from these NBA teams.
This marks the second ejection for Green this season, with the player accumulating two technical fouls in a recent game, leading to an automatic removal. Tuesday’s incident adds to Green’s track record, marking his 18th career ejection. For Thompson, it is his second early departure from a game, the first occurring last season.
Green’s Aggressive Reputation
Green, known for his aggressive playstyle, has often found himself in the spotlight for his on-court behavior. This incident adds to a history that includes occasional suspensions and a notable punch thrown at former teammate Jordan Poole in the previous season.
