NBA stars Draymond Green and Bradley Beal in furious fight on the court during champions Golden State Warriors’ clash with Washington Wizards

Green and Beal were both ejected for their clash – which sparked a mass brawl on the court.

Seconds earlier, Warriors star Green had blocked a Beal shot, before Wizards forward Kelly Oubre Jr grabbed the rebound and missed a three-point attempt.

As Golden State All-Star Kevin Durant grabbed the ball to launch a break, Beal and Green are seen coming to blows.

The pair wrestle each other onto the floor and eventually off the court as players from both sides sprint to the altercation to intervene.

A minute later, Green re-emerges with his jersey torn – before both players are given their marching orders.

Replays suggested Beal lashed out first, catching Green on the side of the head.

The ever-fiery Green then furiously turned around and hit back at Beal before the grappling.

Both players could now face lengthy suspensions.

Following the game, won by the Warriors 120-117, Green said: “I don’t know what I’m supposed to do if someone hits you twice.

“Man, you’re taught as a kid not to allow that. What was I supposed to do?

“There’s history with me and the NBA. That’s the only reason I can think of why I was ejected.”

Green of course has something of a chequered past, having been caught up in multiple scraps during his career.

The Warriors forward has been suspended in the past for kicking and punching fellow NBA stars in the groin.

Most famously, Green was suspended for Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016 for striking LeBron James between the legs.

That year, the Cavs made history to overturn a 3-1 deficit in the best-of-seven series to win 4-3 – their first NBA title.

The Warriors had trailed for most of the game at the Oracle Arena on Friday night, but a fourth quarter surge edged the reigning champions to victory in the heated clash.
