NBA rescinds Green, Nene Game 2 technicals

The NBA has rescinded technical fouls called Tuesday night against Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green and Houston Rockets center Nene, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

The league's decision means Green's total number of postseason technical fouls has been reduced from four to three.

Seven technicals in one postseason span results in an automatic one-game suspension.

The technicals were called against Green and Nene late in the third quarter of Game 2 between the Warriors and Rockets, when the players exchanged a few words and were quickly given double technicals by official Ed Malloy.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after the game that the team would speak to the NBA in hopes they would rescind the technical foul before Game 3 on Saturday.
