“We’ve played in front of rude people before. Dropping f-bombs with children in the crowd. Really classy. Good job, Boston,” Thompson said, via NBC Sports Bay Area.

Kerr had a sarcastic response.

“Classy. Very classy,” he said.

It’s probably not what caused Green’s poor performance in Game 3. The Warriors big man had two points, four rebounds and three assists in the loss.

Green told reporters after the game he expected to hear it from the crowd.

“No, they just talking. Not really my job to react to them. They did what I expected,” he said. “I embrace it. I enjoy it. I didn’t really feed off of it tonight. I don’t think I fed off much tonight.”

Green’s wife, Hazel, wasn’t having any of it. She wrote on Instagram there was no way Celtics fans should have reacted as they did.

“Tough loss tonight BUT in NO WAY, shape or form should fans be allowed to chant obscenities at players! Are they not human? Is someone standing at your job saying off the wall things to you? The @nba has the audacity to have a whole code of conduct card at every seat about fans and their behavior and how they could be ejected from a game or banned but a whole crowd/section/numerous people get to chant F— YOU DRAYMOND or call him a B—- or MF?! And nothing?? Like that’s ok?! Warriors fans would NEVER!! My kids were at the game tonight hearing that mess! Very DISGUSTING of you little Celtics fans Just shameful!”
