Durant, Green double-technical rescinded

The NBA has rescinded technical fouls called against the Warriors' Kevin Durant and theClippers' JaMychal Green during Thursday's Game 3, the league announced Friday.

Both players appeared surprised by the third-quarter call, since they were just exchanging a few words when the double-technical was given.

Durant said after the game that he hoped the technical would get rescinded.

"Me and JaMychal Green, we were conversing about the play that happened before, just like you and I," Durant said. "Somebody came out of nowhere and tech'd us both. How would you feel? That was pretty quick. Hopefully they rescind that one because I don't want somebody to think somebody is in my head, that's why I got that tech. I just want to get that out of the way because I don't want to jeopardize my team in the future."

With the technical rescinded, Durant is now five away from an automatic one-game suspension.
