Tristan Thompson fined $25K for Game 1 skirmish

Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson celebrate in the first quarter of Game 4 of the NBA Western Conference finals against the Houston Rockets at Oracle Arena in Oakland Calif. on Tuesday

Tristan Thompson, who shoved the ball in the face of Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green in the closing seconds of Game 1 after already being ejected, was fined $25,000.

In a Friday night news release announcing the fine, the National Basketball Association said it also was downgrading that foul to a flagrant 1 "upon league office review".

The Golden State Warriors won Game 1 124-114 in overtime.

The action was mainly targeted at China over accusations of flooding the global market with cut-rate metals and dragging down prices.

There appears to be some good news for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the aftermath of Thursday's disappointing Game 1 of the NBA Finals. "If there is a shot clock differential, we're going to take a shot". Thompson was ejected from the game, but before he could leave the court, Green injected himself into the situation jawing at Thompson.

"I don't care if he plays or not", Thompson said on a conference call. I don't know why there's any ritual that tells you you're supposed to stop playing. By rule, a player who is not in the game at the time of a skirmish is not permitted on the court. "I mean, he's great on the [offensive] boards". When the two forwards approached each other, Thompson had some words before ramming the ball into Green's face. We're not trying to go dunk on them. "That was very uncalled for, especially if two guys are just talking. I don't take the turnover", he told ESPN. Just a few minutes into the game, Klay Thompson had to head to the locker room with a left lateral leg contusion, according to the ABC broadcast.

Kevin Love has every reason to be perturbed, considering the ruling nearly matches word for word his description of the play.
