Draymond Green was phenomenal during the Warriors' brutal Game 7 loss on Sunday, pouring in 32 points on 11-of-15 shooting (6-of-8 from deep) with 15 rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 47 minutes.

Green made 5-of-5 threes in the first half alone, many of which were wide open, becoming the first player to score 22+ points in the first half of a Finals Game 7 since Walt Frazier in 1970. Green's offense tonight was complemented by chaos-creating defense, a performance that cements him as one of the game's most fearsome two-way players, but it wasn't enough to carry teammates who shot a combined 21-of-68 from the field (30.9 percent). Green's suspension in Game 5 may have been a turning point in the series, but his performance on Sunday cannot be faulted.

Draymond Green scored eight points with 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 41 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

He said the Warriors would have won in Game 5 with him in the lineup, but it's almost impossible to beat the Cavs when LeBron James is rolling like he is. Green will likely start again on Sunday for Game 7.
Jun 16 - 11:58 PM

The Cavaliers lobbied for Draymond Green to be suspended for two games, according to Zach Lowe of ESPN.

While likely a tactic to get the league to compromise on a one-game suspension, Lowe says the Cavs pushed the NBA to suspend Green for two games after a shot to LeBron James' groin in Game 4. "The Cavs wanted him suspended for two games," Lowe reported. "I can tell you that. They wanted it to be a flagrant 2 and to have him suspended for Game 5 and Game 6." The league got this one right not extending Green's ban to two games, but his absence paid off for the Cavs as they won Game 5 on the road.

Draymond Green said that he'll continue to play his game, but vowed to be more "composed" during Game 6.

Green also said that he felt like he was a bad teammate for being forced to miss Game 5, but GM Bob Myers watching the game with him in a suite at the Oakland A's stadium made him feel like being a "Warrior forever." With Andrew Bogut (knee) done for the Finals, Green is going to get all the run he can handle, and if the Dubs pull out a win in Game 6 he'll more likely be named Finals MVP.

Draymond Green was "hurting" watching the Game 5 loss on Monday, according to ESPN's Marc Spears.

He watched the game from a luxury suite at O.co Coliseum during the Oakland A's game on Monday. According to Spears, Green watched the game with the audio off because he didn't want to hear the commentary about him, and was yelling at the screen with emphasis on the defense. He has to be fired up for Game 6 in Cleveland on Thursday.
Jun 14 - 1:27 AM

Draymond Green is expected to watch Game 5 of the NBA Finals at O.Co Coliseum, a source told ESPN's Marc J. Spears.

ESPN's Marc Stein adds, per sources, that Green would be allowed to celebrate with Golden State should the Warriors win the NBA championship on Monday. The Coliseum is connected by tunnel to Oracle Arena, so it wouldn't be difficult for Green to make the trip should his team win it all without him.
Jun 13 - 12:05 PM

Draymond Green is reportedly "pushing hard" to watch Game 5 inside Oracle Arena, despite the suspension barring him from attending.

Green and his reps are "discussing the logistics of attending with the league and players' union," though it seems unlikely that the NBA will carve out an exception for him. The Warriors and Cavs took a few shots at each other during Sunday's media availability, and Green's suspension sets the stage for an acrimonious Game 5 in Oakland. With Draymond unavailable, the Warriors could start Andre Iguodala while giving more minutes to Harrison Barnes and possibly James Michael McAdoo.
Jun 12 - 8:41 PM

Draymond Green has been assessed a Flagrant Foul 1 for his actions during Game 4 and will be suspended for Monday's Game 5 of the Finals against the Cavs.

This is obviously a tough blow for Golden State as they'll be trying to close out the series at home, and it's unclear who exactly will be stepping into the starting five in Green's place. Green only missed one game during the 2015-16 season, and Brandon Rush started that one, so he'll be an option. Festus Ezeli, Marreese Speights, Andre Iguodala and James Michael McAdoo all figure to earn some more minutes Monday night sans Green, while Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson will be running the show on offense. As a side note, LeBron James was given a technical foul for his part in the incident.

There is growing concern in the Warriors camp that Draymond Green could be suspended for Game 5 after his incident with LeBron James on Friday, according to Marc Spears of ESPN.

Uh oh. Spears says there are interviews taking place with the league. Green only needs one more flagrant foul point to get a suspension, so any flagrant ruling would cost him Game 5. The NBA should announce their ruling on Sunday. If he is suspended, Andrew Bogut will really have to step up while Festus Ezeli, James Michael McAdoo and Marreese Speights would all be in play for more minutes. Andre Iguodala would be a candidate to start, too.
Jun 12 - 1:40 AM

The league is reviewing the incident between Draymond Green and LeBron James.

In case you missed it, LeBron James stepped over Green in a somewhat intentional manner. After that, Green's arm flailed and may have caught James below the belt. Considering Green's high frequency of below-the-belt contact in these playoffs and his flagrant foul points, there is a chance he is suspended for Game 5. There should be a resolution within the next 24 hours.
Jun 11 - 4:13 PM

Draymond Green scored nine points with 12 rebounds, four assists, two steals, three blocks and three turnovers in 42 minutes against the Cavs.

The bigger news will be what happened with LeBron James in the fourth. James stepped over Green and Green may have hit him below the belt. Of course, Green's contact below the belt on his opponents in this postseason has been well-chronicled, so the league will be looking at this. The video is in the link below.

Draymond Green said that the Warriors lost by 30 points in Game 3 because they played "extremely soft."

"We were extremely soft," said Green after Thursday's practice. "We got bullied, punked, whatever word you can find for it. There was no X or O adjustment they made, they punked us." Green also credited the Cavs' effort, saying that they came out "with a sense of desperation," and added that the Dubs can't simply just show up and expect to win. Look for Green to bounce-back from Wednesday's 2-of-8 shooting performance in Game 4.

Draymond Green notched seven rebounds and seven assists during Wednesday's 30-point road loss, but he shot just 2-of-8 from the field to finish with six points.

Green was 0-of-4 from deep and 2-of-4 at the FT line, and Cleveland's decision to move LeBron James to PF disrupted the Warriors' typically devastating pick-and-rolls with Green. His 36 minutes were a team-high tonight, and he wasn't the only Warriors player to struggle -- they shot just 42.1 percent from the field (27.3 percent from deep) while getting out-rebounded 52-32.
Jun 9 - 12:28 AM

Draymond Green will play in the Olympics if selected, sources told Marcus Thompson of the San Jose Mercury News.

According to Thompson, Green "will not be deterred by Zika fears." Green's style of play should translate well to the international stage, and at this point it would be an eyebrow-raiser if he isn't among those selected for the final roster.
