Draymond Green answers calls to suspend Anthony Davis after hitting Jae Crowder

Draymond Green doesn’t want Lakers’ Anthony Davis suspended for a blow to Heat’s Jae Crowder in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. On Twitter, the Golden State Warrior star made it clear that he didn’t think Davis should be suspended and that he wanted the championship to be decided on the pitch.

Draymond Green knows a thing or two about suspensions that affect the course of the Finals. In 2016 he was disqualified for Game 5 of the Finals after suffering his fourth flagrant foul in the playoffs. This would lead the Cleveland Cavaliers led by LeBron James to win game 5 and eventually the series. Many believed that Green’s losing game was a turning point in the series.

The potential of a suspension comes from Davis’ blow to Heat winger Jae Crowder. The NBA has stated that, after looking at unpublished incident angles, it will not suspend the seven-time All Star, according to NBC Sports’ Kurt Helin. Draymond Green approves of this decision.

I was able to view other angles of the incident (which aren’t public) – particularly the base camera angle – and from those angles Davis catches Crowder more in the neck and pushes him, it’s not a punch. In my opinion it should have been a common foul, but from those angles you could also argue if it’s a foul.

The NBA reviews all footage from every game for this type of incident. Sources told NBC Sports that after reviewing all angles, the contact was deemed not worthy of a flagrant.

The Lakers and the Heat will face each other on Sunday night in Game 6. Draymond Green will be watching.
