Boston Celtics wing Jaylen Brown offered his perspective to reporters about his confrontation with Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green during Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday.
The interaction occurred late in the second quarter after Green fouled Brown on a three-point attempt:
Green tangled his legs up on Brown, leading to the altercation. The Warriors forward was not called for anything outside of the personal foul.
Green had been called for a technical foul earlier in the game for arguing with officials. He was on the hook for an ejection if called for a second T following the Brown incident, which did not happen.
Given the scenario, Celtics head coach Ime Udoka wasn't surprised that the referees decided against calling a double technical.
The Warriors ended up winning 107-88 behind a 35-14 third-quarter advantage to tie the NBA Finals at one game apiece. Warriors guard Stephen Curry led all scorers with 29 points.
