Draymond Green s parks Warriors to  win with 17th tech, scrum

Green's first spark came with 3:45 remaining in the second quarter when he picked up his 17th technical foul.

After Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram drove from the perimeter toward the basket, Green appeared to lower his shoulder and shove Ingram. As Ingram made his way from the baseline back onto the court, he approached Green and the two exchanged words, resulting in some shoving.

About 20 seconds later, Green almost picked up another technical foul after a clash with Herbert Jones. As Green drove for a layup, he collided with Jones and landed on top of him.

But each remaining game in the regular season will have a postseason atmosphere and pressure to it.

"It feels like we've been in a playoff vibe for a couple weeks now," Curry said. "The only difference is you're playing a different team every night. But it's the same kind of adrenaline rush that we're getting. Every game does matter."
