You didn’t even need cable to watch the beating that the Golden State Warriors put on the Los Angeles Clippers. It was so bad, it reminded viewers of the Clippers from yesteryear. Especially after Deandre Jordan‘s failed — well, nonexistent — game winning shot against the Trailblazers a few nights back.
Adding salt to their troubled wounds was Los Angeles’ Dahntay Jones. During a nationally televised post-game interview with ABC, while Draymond Green was speaking on his impressive stat line (23 points shooting 8-15 from the field, 3 rebounds, and 6 assists) Jones was seen on camera glancing at Green before — seemingly on purpose — brushing him as he walked into the locker room.
Later, media caught up with Draymond to discuss what occurred. Green held no punches back with his response:
“If [Dahntay Jones] gets suspended, they may not even notice. So I guess good bump-by, but I definitely expect to be reviewed by the NBA. You know, for him to look at me and look at me again, and bump me, when I’m doing a postgame interview, that’s really smart too, when it’s on ABC. And obviously the postgame interview is the highlight of that segment, and you bump somebody? He got some camera time, which he needed because there wasn’t much celebration from their bench today, so you didn’t see him much. So he got the camera time that he was looking for…He served his purpose in today’s game.”
It’s not uncommon for players to be upset after a loss. Especially with Steph Curry running around doing things like this:
