The Golden State Warriors will be without one of their key pieces in Game 5. On Sunday, Warriors forward Draymond Green was suspended by the NBA for Game 5 of the NBA Finals for contact he made to the 'man region' of Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James in Game 4.

Green was given a flagrant-1 foul, in which case he would be suspended, while LeBron was also given a technical foul for his actions in the altercations. The NBA described Green's actions as a "retaliatory swipe of his hand to the groin" of James.

"The cumulative points system is designed to deter flagrant fouls in our game," NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Kiki Vandeweghe said. "While Draymond Green's actions in Game 4 do not merit a suspension as a standalone act, the number of flagrant points he has earned triggers a suspension for Game 5."

Do you think the suspension of Green gives the Cavaliers a shot to get back into the series and push it to a sixth game?
