Draymond Green was fired from the Warriors after an argument with Official vs. Magic

ORLANDO, Fla. – Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was ejected less than four minutes into Wednesday night's game against the Orlando Magic.

Green was tweeting at official Ray Acosta after he was called for his first personal foul. Several plays later, after Stephen Curry was called for a shooting foul, Green approached Acosta and began yelling at him. Acosta issued a technical foul, and when Green didn't stop, Acosta gave him another foul, ending his night at 8:24 of the first quarter.

As Green walked off the court, Warriors coach Steve Kerr expressed his displeasure with the officials. During the subsequent timeout, Curry paced back and forth while shaking his head.

The Warriors went on to win 101-93.

It was Green's fourth career ejection of the season. He is the first player to be ejected at least four times in a season since Kevin Durant was ejected five times in the 2017-18 season, according to ESPN Stats & Information research.

Wednesday's outing was also the second time Green was ejected in the first quarter this season. According to ESPN Stats & Info, he is the only player to have multiple first-quarter sacks in a single season over the past 20 campaigns.
