Marcio Jose Sanchez/APDavid Lee finishes off a dunk as the Warriors extended their season by at least one more game with a Game 6 victory against the Clippers in Oakland on Thursday.

OAKLAND — Warriors forward Draymond Green was fined $15,000 by the NBA on Thursday for failing to leave the court in a timely manner after his ejection Wednesday night against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Green was ejected late in the third quarter of the Warriors' 105-103 home victory.

Also Thursday, the NBA said that its referees made a mistake when they ejected Clippers forward Blake Griffin in the same game.

Griffin was ejected for his second technical with 10:43 left after scuffling with Warriors center Andrew Bogut, following Green to the showers after they got into it at the end of the third.

With Griffin gone, the Clippers missed several key chances in the waning moments.

“If you look at it, I didn't do anything and I got thrown out of the game. It all boils down to they [referees] fell for it,” Griffin said after the game. “To me, it's cowardly basketball. I don't know their intentions, but it worked.”
