Sunday’s clash between the two teams brought intense emotions, setting the stage for WWE-like vibes during Tuesday’s game. However, neither team expected to lose key players within the first two minutes.
As aforementioned, an altercation erupted between Jaden McDaniels and Klay Thompson, leading to Rudy Gobert’s intervention.
In response, Draymond Green placed Gobert in a chokehold, resulting in ejections for Green, McDaniels, and Thompson.
With Green out, Kevon Looney stepped in, starting the game on the bench. Also without Thompson, Moses Moody and Brandin Podziemski are likely to see increased playing time, while Nickeil Alexander-Walker benefits from McDaniels’ ejection.
