Draymond makes statement on Twitter; Pistons respond

Draymond Green was assessed a controversial flagrant 1 foul during the second overtime of the Warriors' loss to the Rockets on Thursday night.

On Friday afternoon, the All-Star forward took to Twitter:

Following the loss, Draymond didn't hold back when he was asked about the referees' ruling.

“The thought that they would call a flagrant foul never even crossed my mind," Draymond said. "A lot of other calls led up to that one call . . . I really don’t care. (The officials) are going to do what they want to do regardless. It doesn’t make no difference one way or another.

“I thought there were other calls that could’ve been called flagrant, too. I’m under the impression that if you’re hit in the head, incidental contact, I think that’s a flagrant foul, if I’m not mistaken, in the rulebook. I don’t know. We’ll see. Maybe I’ll go read the rulebook. Maybe I’m wrong. But if I’m not mistaken, I’m right. Who knows?”

Shortly after midnight, Draymond tweeted the following:

 

Steve Kerr named Western Conference Coach of the Month

Steve Kerr named Western Conference Coach of the Month

Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr has been named NBA Western Conference Coach of the Month for games played in October/November, the league announced today.

Kerr led the Warriors to a league-best 16-2 (.889) record during the season’s opening month, including an NBA-best 12-game win streak.

During the month, Golden State led the league in scoring (117.6 points per game), assists (31.1), field goal percentage (.502) and point differential (+12.7) while posting a 9-1 mark away from home. The Warriors compiled a streak of 10 consecutive games with at least 30 assists, tied for the second-longest 30-assist streak in NBA history, and set a franchise record with 47 helpers in a 43-point win over the Lakers on November 23.

With a win at Boston on November 18, Kerr earned his 150th career regular-season coaching victory, becoming the fastest coach to reach 150 regular-season wins in NBA history by doing so in his 176th game, besting the mark previously set by Avery Johnson (191 games). Golden State’s 12-game win streak tied for the third-longest streak in franchise history, the top four of which have all come during Kerr’s tenure in the last three seasons (28, 16, 12, 12).

The award is the fourth career Coach of the Month honor for Kerr, which equals the amount of monthly honors won by all other coaches in Warriors history since the NBA began giving out the award in 1982-83. Kerr has previously won the award in January 2015, March 2015 and March 2016, giving him at least one monthly accolade in each of his three seasons at the helm. In the opening month last season, Luke Walton won the award as the Warriors Interim Head Coach while Kerr was on a leave of absence.

Cleveland Cavaliers Head Coach Tyronn Lue earned Coach of the Month honors in the Eastern Conference.
