Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green said Monday after the team’s 116-101 in Game 2 of its first-round playoff series that San Antonio Spurs center Davis Bertans should have been issued a flagrant foul late in the contest.

Green was given a flagrant-1 foul with 4:52 remaining in the game after his elbow seemed to make contact with Bertans’ chin and sent him to the floor, but Green felt he was simply protecting himself. He told ESPN.com’s Chris Haynes:

“I think it was a little bit of a flop. I don’t even know if I hit him, but if I did—I’m not saying I didn’t, I don’t know—but if it’s going to be a flagrant foul, shouldn’t it be a double flagrant? Like, I can just get grabbed around my neck? I’m not going to sit up here and say I did nothing. I’ve got to get someone off my neck, though. If you’re going to penalize me, then why not penalize both? That’s really my only thing.”

Green finished with nine points, six assists and five rebounds in the win.
