OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Warriors forward Draymond Green and Houston big man Nene had their double technical fouls rescinded by the NBA from Tuesday night's Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Golden State had approached the league asking for the consideration.

The NBA said on Twitter that the technicals had been dropped "upon league office review."

That's a big deal for Green if the two-time defending champions play deep into the postseason again. The Warriors lead their best-of-seven series with the Rockets 2-0 going into Game 3 on Saturday in Houston.

With one fewer technical now, Green's total for the postseason is back to three - and seven draws an automatic one-game suspension.
