A day after admitting he almost cost the Warriors a win by chasing a triple double against the 76ers, the NBA leader in triple doubles, Draymond Green, pulled off one against the Knicks.  What makes this triple double so impressive was Green’s perfect 9 for 9 shooting from the floor. What prevents me from calling his performance a perfect game is he missed both of his free throws – one of those misses was an airball!

“You start to do what I did yesterday, it doesn’t work out,” Green said about the triple doubles. “So I was kind of happy I didn’t get it yesterday because I didn’t deserve it.”

Green also had 2 blocks and 2 steals as the Warriors blew out the Knicks 116-95.
