The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Golden State Warriors, 133-105 badly on Sunday night in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Worse for Golden State are the NBA rumors that star forward Draymond Green may miss the next game because of a dirty play he did against Thunder center Steven Adams, who was the recipient of a kick to the groin from Green during Game 3.

In the play, Green was fouled by Adams but the Warriors forward continued his motion and appeared to intentionally kick the Kiwi center in the groin. Green was called for a flagrant foul after reviews by the referees during the game. It’s not sure if the NBA will review the play and add more penalties against Green.
Recently, Dahntay Jones made a similar dirty play in the Toronto Raptors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Game 3 on Saturday. Jones hit Raptors center Bismack Biyombo near the end of the game. The NBA reviewed the play and levied a one-game suspension on Jones.

Was Draymond Green’s hit on Steven Adams worse than Dahntay Jones’ hit on Bismack Biyombo? Should Green be suspended, according to the latest NBA rumors, for his dirty play on the OKC big man? If Jones was suspended with the punch, should Green also be banned in Game 4 of their series?
