- Can you describe that play where you got hurt? It looked like just an inadvertent elbow from Tillman? And how did it affect you the rest of the game?

DRAYMOND GREEN: well, yeah, it was an elbow. I don't know if it was inadvertent or not, but I really don't care. It was an elbow.

- After you got hit in the eye, when you walked off the court, you flipped off the fans it looked like. What was going through your mind?

DRAYMOND GREEN: If you're going to boo somebody who elbowed in the eye and face running down blood, you should get flipped off. So I'll take the fine. I'll go do an appearance and make up the money. But, it felt really good to flip them off.

You're going to boo someone that get elbowed in the eye and blood running down your face? I Could have had a concussion or anything. So if they're going to be that nasty, I can be nasty too.

And I'm assuming the cheers was because they know I'll get fined. Great. I make $25 million a year. I should be just fine.
