Jusuf Nurkić took another shot at Draymond Green last night after a viral clip of Green laying on the floor during the Warriors’ loss to the Clippers.

Nurkić posted a gif that says “you’re getting soft brother.”

This comes after Green made fun of Nurkić for laying on the floor earlier this week on his Podcast after Green landed a blow to Nurkić’s face on Dec. 12. This hit got Green ejected and suspended indefinitely from the NBA.

“If he actually didn’t lay out on the floor like that, I actually don’t get the suspension that I got probably,” Green said of Nurkić. “But dude laying out like he was dead. What an embarrassment, and they expect to win with that guy.”

The two have been going at each other all week after their first meeting since the original incident on Saturday. Saturday’s game featured a number of dust-ups and taunting by the two big men at each other.

After the game, Nurkić had some choice words for Green.

“It’s sad,” Nurkić said. “He didn’t learn anything. Just a matter of time, he’s going to hit somebody else again. Take back everything I said. He don’t deserve a chance.”

Green then unleashed on Nurkić in his postgame press conference, calling Nurkić a “nothing defender” and a “dummy.” He added that “quiet guys don’t win.”

Green continued in an 8-minute rant about Nurkić on “The Draymond Green Show,” which this clip about Nurkić laying on the floor is from.

The Suns and Warriors don’t meet again this season.
