Draymond Green committed to cutting down his technicals

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Stunningly, Draymond Green kept his mouth shut on the court for a full practice Saturday.

Golden State's outspoken swingman is striving to cut down on his arguing and technical fouls for the rest of the postseason.

Green has four technicals so far, and seven would land him an automatic one-game suspension. He will give himself ''a little wiggle room'' to get one more.

''It was a quiet practice,'' forward Harrison Barnes said with a big grin and chuckle.

The scrimmage was officiated by coaches Jarron Collins and Chris DeMarco - and even with the bad calls, Green bit his lip.

In all seriousness, Barnes appreciates Green taking his mouth to heart, given the defending champion Warriors realize every possession is going to matter against Oklahoma City and mental mistakes could prove costly.

Barnes says, ''We've got to be smart and keep our poise.''
