Draymond Green ejected as Warriors sneak past Suns late

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green had an early exit from their 117-107 win against the Phoenix Suns on Friday night — though not for anything he did during the actual game. With just 3.3 seconds left in the third quarter, Suns forward Kelly Oubre Jr. had a huge putback dunk, which gave Phoenix a three-point lead.
