Draymond Green reacted to Jae Crowder of the Phoenix Suns hitting Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic in the groin.
The second round of the 2022 NBA Playoffs began this past weekend, but the action continued on Monday, May 2. One of the series to kick off was between the Phoenix Suns and the Dallas Mavericks.
In the first half, Jae Crowder of the Suns attempted a three-point shot that was contested by Mavericks star Luka Doncic. Crowder went for a pass to Deandre Ayton but in the process, hit Doncic right in the groin. As a result, Crowder was assessed a flagrant 1 foul.
Importantly, however, he was not ejected.

Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors was watching Game 1 between the Suns and Mavericks, and shared his thoughts on Crowder getting hit with a foul and not getting ejected from Game 1.
It just so happens that one day earlier, Green was assessed a flagrant 2 foul and ejected from Game 1 of the Golden State Warriors-Memphis Grizzlies series after grabbing Brandon Clarke by the jersey in mid-air before pulling him to the court during a shot attempt. It led to many on NBA Twitter to debate whether that foul was actually ejection-worthy.
Doncic remained in the game after getting hit below the belt by Crowder. The Mavericks star entered halftime with 26 points to his credit, but the team trailed the Suns by the score of 69-56.
Green saw what happened between Crowder and Doncic, and he had to share his thoughts on Twitter.
