The incident, which Wizards guard Bradley Beal initiated against Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green by grabbing him around the neck, occurred with 19.5 seconds remaining in the second quarter of the Warriors’ 120-117 win over the Wizards on Friday, Oct. 27 at Oracle Arena.
Beal was ejected for initiating the incident and has been fined $50,000.  Green, who continued the incident by confronting Beal and failing to disengage from him, was ejected for fighting, and has been fined $25,000.
