May 1 (UPI) -- The NBA will rescind technical fouls called in Game 2 on Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green and Houston Rockets center Nene, sources told ESPN and the San Francisco Chronicle.
The league's decision means Green's technical-foul count has been reduced from four to three. Per NBA rules, a player is automatically suspended one game after accruing seven technicals in a single postseason.
Rockets star guard James Harden attempted a foul shot with 1.3 seconds remaining in the third quarter Tuesday night. After the shot, Nene wrapped his left arm around Green's shoulder, leading Green to turn and confront Nene. The two were quickly separated, but referee Ed Malloy handed both players a double technical.
"Every time there's an altercation, it's a double technical," Kerr said. "If you're playing in the playoffs for a few rounds, those add up. If the way to handle it is to call a double technical, I think the league needs to consider that."
Game 3 is Saturday night in Houston. The Warriors hold a 2-0 series lead over the Rockets.
