We mentioned after their Game 2 antics that the Rajon Rondo and Draymond Green rivalry is something we didn’t know the masses needed until it happened.
Well, the two were right back at it again within the first few minutes of Game 3 of the New Orleans Pelicans and Golden State Warriors Western Conference Semifinals series Friday night.
Here, Rondo attempts to get a shot up after the Pelicans called timeout. Green was having none of it, which led to an early confrontation between the two sides.

As two of the biggest hot heads in the game, we would not be surprised if this escalated moving forward in the series.
Golden State boasts a 2-0 series lead. Friday’s game is a must win for the homestanding Pelicans. A loss here, and tempers will certainly heat up heading into Game 4 Sunday afternoon.
