Refs take responsibility for technical foul confusion

Cavaliers fans once again heckled Green during the game, chanting "Draymond sucks".

Warriors forward Draymond Green was at the center of the strangest moment of a weird night when he was called for what looked like his second technical foul early in the third quarter.

"At the end of the day, the series is a little different". That cut Golden State's lead to 3-1, but as usual Green's stats were only a small chapter of his story.

Two of the Prime Minister's closest advisers who were responsible for devising her disastrous electoral campaign were asked to leave.

Still, the Warriors are in command of this series, a potential clincher awaiting them in Game 5 on Monday.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was assessed a technical foul in the first half, but the broadcast and crowd thought it was given to Green.

In the brief, confusing moments when it seemed like Green might have been tossed from Friday night's game midway through the third quarter after referee Marc Davis hit Green with what, at the time, seemed like a second technical foul, as the public address system blared the Ray Charles classic, "Hit The Road Jack" and the crowd here exploded in ecstasy, Green held his arms aloft and asked the crowd for more.

The odd part is that nobody ever bothered clarifying the foul until after Green picked his up for real in the third quarter. The Warriors led last year's Finals 3-1 with the series moving to Golden State for Game 5, and the rest became history.

After the Cavs won to give the Warriors a 3-1 lead, head coaches Tyronn Lue and Kerr were asked about the weird moment. "So I knew I didn't have a technical foul, but still trying to figure out why did I get the second one". After looking at the video, I did not verbalize to the table and looking at the video I should have done a better job of making sure that the table knew the technical foul was on Coach Kerr.

"The table informed us that it was his second technical foul", Callahan told the NBA's pool reporter after the game.

"I really don't pay that much attention - I don't pay much attention to anybody in Cleveland honestly", Green said. "With a coach or trainer, we just verbalize and at that time we should listen to the PA announcer to who it is on". "At that time, we did not do a very good job of listening to the PA announcer and we did not hear him announce it. I take full responsibly for that".

Five-times major victor Phil Mickelson is also four back, while former world No.1 Adam Scott trails by five. Jude and the first since David Toms did it in 2003 and '04.

After the game, Green praised the Cavs for playing well, but all took aim at the refs. James and Irving combined for 71 points, 17 rebounds and 15 assists in Game 4 - two consecutive dominant performances to keep alive the Cavaliers' season.
