With six minutes left in the second quarter, Draymond Green hit the floor after crashing against the screen made by Lakers center Dwight Howard. An enraged Draymond Green quickly got up to his feet and yelled at referee Marat Kogut. 'The Draymond Green rant' was further unleashed on second referee Tyler Ford. This warranted two quick technical fouls leading to his automatic ejection. Infuriated as ever, Green stomped toward the home locker room.

Warriors eventually lost their eighth game in a row after succumbing 86-116 to the Lakers. Despite the game being a close affair for much of the game, a massive 40-17 win for Lakers in Q3, proved to be the eventual difference-maker. In 10 minutes before his ejection, Green had two points, four assists, one rebound and four fouls.

Warriors will face Washington Wizards next on Sunday night (Monday IST) with fans excited for Stephen Curry's return to the Warriors lineup.
