Draymond Green and Bradley Beal were both ejected from Friday night's game shortly before halftime.

Beal slapped Green in the face from behind, which led Green to grab Beal. The two remained locked as the scuffle spilled into the baseline.

Green had received a technical foul earlier in the game.

Green spoke with ESPN about the incident while the game was still in progress.

"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?

Green was asked if there's history with Bea.

"There's history with me and the NBA. That's the only reason I can think of why I was ejected."
