“I don’t know what I was supposed to do there. Somebody got their legs on the top of your head. And then he tried to pull my pants down.”

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 notably 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 ultimately 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.
