Draymond Green Dances After Two Clutch Blocks vs Hawks, Says It’s A “Double Slap In The Face”
Remember earlier in the month, after a victory against the Bucks, when Draymond said he feels insulted when teams try to run plays against him at the end of games? On Monday, a couple of Hawks – Dennis Schroder and Kent Bazemore – tried to make clutch plays against him in the final minute of regulation and both attempts turned into blocks for the Defensive Player of the Year candidate.
“I love those,” Green said after the 105-100 victory. “It’s like a double slap in the face.”
“That was amazing. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a sequence like that from one guy,” coach Steve Kerr said. “Draymond’s amazing. He literally can guard anybody in the league.”
The 6’7 Green finished the game with a game-high four blocks to go with four points and a game-high seven assists. He’s currently ranked #7 in blocks, ahead of DeAndre Jordan, Serge Ibaka and Dwight Howard. And if you like “ESPN stats be like…” stuff, Green is the only player in the NBA this season to block three shots in the final three minutes of a 4th quarter in a single game.
