Tristan Thompson's Game 1 performance will perhaps best be remembered for his late scuffle with Draymond Green, although that wasn't the reason the Cleveland Cavaliers big man was removed from Thursday's series opener of the NBA Finals.

Thompson had taken exception to Warriors guard Shaun Livingston putting up a shot with five seconds left in overtime and the game in hand.

The official nearest the play called Thompson for a flagrant foul, which was apparently enough to eject him.

The second round of talks lasted for about four-and-a-half hours, according to the report. He would be the most senior North Korean official to visit the United States in 18 years.

The Cavs lost to the Warriors in OT, 124-114. I make the contest, and next thing I know I was being kicked out for making a contest that we learn in training camp.

The league announced on Friday, via Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Thompson has been fined $25,000, while his flagrant-2 foul has been downgraded to a flagrant-1. Thompson was ejected for the foul. By rule, a player who is not in the game at the time of a skirmish is not permitted on the court. JR [Smith] was still guarding him, you know. "I mean, he's great on the [offensive] boards". According to ESPN's Dave McMenamin, Green was mimicking a cheerleader waving pom-poms to mock Perkins who was screaming towards the Warriors' side of the court. But we're concerned with how our game plan is going to be executed and what we have to do to limit them on the offensive glass. And if anybody is offended because you're playing the game the way the clock and the rules are telling you to play, then I think that's silly.
