The Latest: Draymond Green to watch finals at Oakland A's
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Latest on Game 5 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers (all times local):
The Oakland Athletics are hosting a baseball game on the same night of Game 5, and they're also rolling out the welcome mat for suspended Warriors forward Draymond Green.
Green is expected to watch Game 5 from a baseball suite in Oakland Coliseum, which is right next door to Oracle Arena.
The Athletics are hosting the Texas Rangers for a baseball game that begins an hour after tipoff of the basketball game. And the team offered Green the chance to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the game started.
But an A's spokeswoman says Green declined the offer, preferring to keep a low profile while he watches his teammates from afar.
If the Warriors can close out the series with a win over the Cavaliers, Green will be allowed to join the team in Oracle for the celebration.
If they lose, Green will join his teammates to get ready to travel to Cleveland for Game 6.
