OAKLAND, Calif. -- Draymond Green's strenuous relationship with the officials has continued.

The NBA fined Green $50,000 for "directing inappropriate and offensive language toward a game official" during Tuesday's loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at Oracle Arena. Green became upset with official Lauren Holtcamp after not calling a foul on Oklahoma City forward Jerami Grant elbowed Green in the mouth and caused him to bleed.

Green was later ejected in the fourth quarter for arguing another call in what marked his 13th technical of the season. Green will serve a one-game suspension without pay if he collects three more technical fouls.
