Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green says he doesn't understand why he received a $25,000 fine from the NBA for his altercation with Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal. In the first half of the Warriors victory over the Wizards on Friday, the two players were trying to get position in the paint after Beal got his shot blocked by Green. Beal then hit Green, and Green responded by grabbing Beal. Players and coaches from both teams then tried to break up the scuffle. Both players were ejected from the game. Beal was eventually fined $50,000, while Green was hit with a $25,000 fine for "failing to disengage." Wizards guard Kelly Oubre Jr. was fined $15,000 for his role in the incident and Wizards players Markieff Morris and Carrick Felix were each suspended one game for leaving the bench.
