Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green wasn’t impressed after Sunday’s win over the Los Angeles Clippers when his post-game interview was interrupted.

Green scored a team-high 23 points in the 106-98 win on Sunday, and was asked to share a few words with ABC after the game to discuss both his performance and that of his team.
However, it didn’t get off to a great start as Dahntay Jones appeared in background and slowly edged towards Green before bumping him on his way past.
The Warriors forward had to take a second look to see who it was and figure out whether or not it was on purpose, and he had some harsh words for Jones in an interview with the media in the locker room.
“I think he wanted a reaction from me, but he don’t play,” Green told reporters according to ESPN, taking note that Jones is averaging a career-low 4.6 minutes per game this season.
“Me getting suspended and him getting suspended, it’s different. If [Dahntay Jones] gets suspended they may not even notice.”
Green added that he hoped the NBA would review the incident and take action, but not without taking another shot at his rival by insisting that he “got some camera time” as he hadn’t had much during the game given the Clippers had little to cheer about.
These two teams have been involved in scraps and arguments in recent years as their rivalry continues to build, and if this is what happens during a regular season meeting, it will be interesting to find out how intense things get if they cross paths in the playoffs again.
