Here we go again with Draymond Green, ladies and gentlemen.

For the Golden State Warriors’ main group, they’ve played a whopping 28 playoff series together with four championship rings on their fingers, and as a result, there isn’t much left Dub Nation hasn’t seen — like being down 0-2 in a series.

As a franchise, Golden State hasn’t seen an 0-2 deficit since 2007, which happened in the Western Conference semifinals against the Utah Jazz.

However, history switched up Monday night when the Warriors took a 114-106 defeat to the Sacramento Kings, which now has them down 0-2 to their in-state rival. There were a lot of reasons why Golden State lost, including missed open layups, not taking care of the ball and not being able to compete with Sacramento’s physicality — problems they’ve been dealing with all season.

Well, the frustration obviously flooded Warriors star power forward Draymond Green, who ended up getting ejected from the game with 7:03 left in the fourth quarter after outright stomping Kings power forward Domantas Sabonis in the chest, video shows.

Following Warriors superstar point guard Stephen Curry getting a defensive rebound and then heading back up to the opposite end of the court, Sabonis slipped and fell over in the paint. Sabonis grabbed Green’s leg, and though Green got out of Sabonis’ grip, he apparently decided to do a hard stomp right into the chest of his Kings opponent.

Sabonis remained on the ground for minutes as officials reviewed what happened. He was eventually hit with a technical foul for grabbing Green’s leg, while a flagrant foul 2 was called on the four-time NBA champion, which led to him being automatically ejected.

Just an unbelievable scene.
