In a fiery Tuesday night clash, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green found himself ejected for putting Minnesota Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert in a chokehold, escalating tensions already ignited by an altercation between Klay Thompson and Jaden McDaniels.

Gobert, not holding back, lambasted Green in a post-game interview, labeling his actions as "clown behavior" and suggesting that Green strategically seeks ejections when star player Steph Curry is absent. 

This verbal jab adds to a history of subtle and explicit exchanges between the two players, both on social media and in previous comments.

With Green known for his vocal presence on social media, the basketball community eagerly awaits his response to Gobert's accusations. 

Green, who recently defended himself against critics after a prior ejection, may choose to break his silence on the matter soon.

The NBA's decision not to penalize Gobert in the incident points toward a potential suspension and fine for Green. 

As the league reviews the incident, speculation arises about the consequences Green may face beyond the ejection, adding another layer of anticipation to the aftermath of this heated clash.
