The Warriors PF was aggressive on an inbounds pass and paid the price.

Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green fouled out of Game 2 against the Dallas Mavericks with 2:25 left in the fourth quarter. Green was going for a steal on an inbounds pass and picked up his final foul. He finished the game with six points, six rebounds and five assists in the contest.

Green’s sixth foul came at quite an inopportune time for Golden State. The Warriors were holding onto an eight-point lead and Green’s foul sent the Mavericks to the line to cut the deficit to six. It looks like Golden State is ultimately going to hold on, but this is the type of play Green tends to go for that can work out really well or really poorly.

Kevon Looney and Moses Moody have given the Warriors strong minutes in this game, as Green was in foul trouble for most of the contest. That’s good news for Golden State going forward.
