Green did get whistled for a technical foul in game four Friday for a flailing arm, what was momentarily thought to be an ejecting offense as a second technical.
"The procedure is to advise the table who the technical foul is on and with the player we give a number".

Green said his suspension conversation with Myers is a moment "I remember like it was yesterday, I'll never forget it".
Green was visibly irate after the scores table had shown he was ejected from the game and the crowd at Quicken Loans Arena cheered incessantly. "When we've got guys - like Steph [Curry], Klay [Thompson], me, [Kevin Durant] - picking up two, three fouls in a hurry, it's tough to bring the physicality".

Just 15 seconds later, Evgeni Malkin scored off a two-on-one, firing a flawless shot over Rinne's glove for a 4-1 lead. Bonino could not put weight on his left foot as he was helped off the ice when a shot from Predators defenseman P.K.
The first technical, which was on record as belonging to Draymond at quarter time, and at half time, now belonged to coach Steve Kerr.
The Warriors "got us where they want us", James said.
In fact, ABC's Doris Burke confirmed during the broadcast that scorers' table thought the first tech was Draymond's up until the refs corrected them after his second technical. No explanation was given about the play by the officials to the pool reporter after the game. The officials had to sift through a melee with 1:10 left, in which Zaza Pachulia and Kyle Korver were tangled on the court over a loose ball, and in the meantime Pachulia appeared to kick Iman Shumpert and punch him twice while Shumpert stood over him.
So even though Friday was a bad night for the Warriors, at least they head home with good news. With 1:55 to play in the first, referee John Goble definitely called a technical. Let's make sure you're playing and I get to watch.
The clarification is becoming increasingly relevant in case of a here-we-go-again extension of this series to seven games.
