Draymond Green had a very Draymond Green night. He was involved in some controversial plays on the court, had a memorable press conference moment, and even got into a last second shoving match in the game's waning seconds.

Green never has a problem playing instigator. He was all of that last night, especially down the stretch. With the Warriors sealing the game in JR Smith-aided overtime, Green took a shot at a loud member of the opposition: Kendrick Perkins.

Perk has had himself an interesting playoffs himself, and he hasn't stepped on the court once. The 2008 NBA Champion is on the roster to add a veteran locker room presence, but he keeps making headlines while wearing a suit on the sidelines.

During the Toronto Raptors series, Perkins got into it with rapper and Toronto team ambassador Drake. It wasn't exactly a Pusha T-level performance, but Perkins made some headlines.

Last night, he must have been jawing from the sidelines again, because he caught the ire of Green. With the game in hand late, Green decided to mock Perkins.

Draymond Green did a cheerleader dance, invisible pom poms and all, to make fun of Kendrick Perkins' role on the team.

It wasn't immediately clear who Draymond was mocking, as you can't see Perkins in the video. However, Dave McMenamin made it clear that Perkins was the target.

Moments later, Green got into it with Tristan Thompson. The Cavaliers forward was mad about a garbage time shot taken by Shaun Livingston late in the shot clock.

Green started clapping very close to Thompson's face, and had the ball shoved in his grill. That got Thompson ejected with seconds left in the game.

Luckily for Draymond, Klay Thompson and a group of other Warriors got him out of the line of fire before he had a chance to retaliate. We've seen Draymond make grave mistakes in the Finals before. Last night, he toed that line.
