Draymond Green apologized to his Golden State teammates for being suspended for Game 5 of the NBA Finals because of an accrual of flagrant-foul points during the playoffs.

His coach didn't need to hear any apology.

Steve Kerr revealed Thursday -- a few hours before tipoff of Game 6 of the Golden State-Cleveland series -- that he told Green what's done is done, and he wants his forward's focus solely on figuring out a way to help the Warriors win one more game this season.

"I approached him before he approached me and said `You don't owe anybody an apology. Without you we're not even here. We're all on vacation at this point,"' Kerr said. "He's been phenomenal for us for two years. Great player. He's here tonight. So whatever happened last game or before that is meaningless. The only thing that matters is how he plays tonight."

Golden State leads the series 3-2, and can clinch on Cleveland's floor for the second straight year with a win Thursday.
