Draymond Green was close to a triple-double in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Lakers as he scored 11 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 9 assists.
The Warriors won the game convincingly crushing the Purple and Gold 127-110. During the postgame press conference Green was asked about the comment that he made after Game 1 when he said that he felt disgusted with himself.
“Just to be aggressive on both ends of the floor,” Green said. “Last game I felt like I never want to feel like that leaving the game again. I never want to leave the game feeling like that. I was disgusted with my performance as if I didn’t know how to play on both ends.
“Chris DeMarco showed me some film yesterday and he said ‘I don’t know who this guy is defensively.’ They were all defensive clips. They were pretty much through the first three quarters. And then he showed me myself in the fourth quarter, he said ‘This is the guy I know, so show up that way tomorrow.’
“I took that at the heart and I knew that I would have to come out and have a good game in order for us to win. Obviously, we were able to win pretty handily. But just knew I had to come out and be aggressive on both sides of the ball, be decisive. I thought Game 1 I was very indecisive on both ends and I just wanted to change that tonight.”
