The Golden State Warriors feel Draymond Green gets called for too many technical fouls. Apparently they feel the problem isn’t with Green, but the officials calling the fouls.

CSN Bay Area reported on Monday that Golden State brass are speaking directly to the NBA about how many technical fouls are called against Green, who already has two in this young NBA season.

They requested an audience with Kiki Vandeweghe, the NBA’s discipline czar and the man who ultimately decided to suspend Green for Game 5 of the NBA Finals, who was at Staples Center for the Warriors-Lakers game Friday night.

Warriors general manager Bob Myers did speak with Vandeweghe, according to a team source. Coach Steve Kerr certainly believes a discussion is warranted, expressing hope that a meeting with Vandeweghe clears the air.

Green picked up two technical fouls in the first five games, a rate that would result in 33 over the 82-game regular season.

Green got tagged for his pair of technicals by simply yelling. His first came after a dunk on opening night against San Antonio. The second came when he celebrated a Kevin Durant block of Russell Westbrook last week.
