Before leaving the court upon his ejection, Thompson got into an altercation with Warriors forward Draymond Green, hitting him in the face with both his fist and the ball, and a skirmish ensued. "Kevin [Durant] threw me the ball in my sweet spot and the clock was going down so I took the shot". JR [Smith] was still guarding him, you know.
Really, the reason we look to the bench now when there's a "fight" is because of the suspensions issued to Amare Stoudemire and Raja Bell after they came to the defense of Phoenix Suns teammate Steve Nash at the tail end of Game 4 in the 2007 Western Conference finals.
Green and Stephen Curry had his back. "You're supposed to take a turnover?"
As of now, there hasn't been any reporting on the situation besides from us. "It's just what we do", Durant said. "So we've been doing that all year, since I've been here, too". I mean, obviously, if they're doing some taunting or doing some insane stuff, that's a little different. Guys are out there to finish a game and play the right way.

He ranks 16th on Stanford's career scoring list and 10th on its career rebounding list. According to Goodman, Kentucky is the favorite to land Travis.
That altercation wasn't the first one in the final minute of the game. That offended Thompson, who then subsequently jawed with Warriors forward Draymond Green for clapping about his ejection.
"He started talking trash, I started talking trash back", Curry told ABC Sports afterward.
After dropping Game 1 in heartbreaking fashion, losing Love to suspension for Game 2 would have been a devastating blow.
"If there's time on the clock and the shot clock differential, whatever, just play it to the end". "I'm not going to get into any of that [suspension] stuff".
