Could Tristan Thompson be suspended after Game 1 altercation with Draymond Green?

  • Klay Thompson holds his left leg in pain after being fouled by J.R. Smith early in the first quarter of Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals. More

The NBA will not suspend Kevin Love for Game 2.

Love was potentially in hot water following the Cavaliers' Game 1 loss when he was standing on the court as Tristan Thompson and Draymond Green got into a shoving match.

ESPN's Dave McMenamin reports via Twitter that as of Friday afternoon the National Basketball Association is still reviewing Thompson's actions at the end of Game 1. I make the contest, and next thing I know, I was being kicked out for a good contest that we learn in training camp. When the two forwards approached each other, Thompson had some words before ramming the ball into Green's face.

"I've got a sore ligament", Thompson told reporters.

Shortly after Thompson went to the locker room, ABC's Doris Burke reported that the Warriors had diagnosed him with a left lateral leg contusion, that he was getting taped up, and that they expected him to return.


It means the Cavs will use the lineup from most of their run through the Eastern Conference finals of Love and Thompson in the front court, LeBron James on the wing, and George Hill and JR Smith at guard.

Rules also state that "during an altercation, all players not participating in the game must remain in the immediate vicinity of their bench". However, Love said he was not anxious about receiving disciplinary action from the league for the sequence. It's possible that Thompson could be suspended for Game 2 of the playoffs, which is set for Sunday, June 3, because of his actions. The scuffle really sparked when Tristan Thompson lost his cool after receiving a flagrant foul.

"If there's a shot-clock differential, you shoot the ball", he said.

"We don't ever take the turnover".
