Golden State Warriors’ forward Draymond Green shed light on the team’s unconventional defensive strategy against Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics, revealing insights into their game plan.

In a surprising move, the Warriors chose to leave Brown open at the three-point line, a decision that ultimately backfired as Brown capitalized on the opportunity, leading the Celtics to a resounding 140-88 victory with an impressive 29-point performance, including 5 of 10 three-pointers.

Reflecting on the tactical decision, Green shared, “We implemented our strategy like 15 minutes before we left the locker room… It didn’t work… I thought it was fun to try.”

Post-game, Brown addressed the Warriors’ defensive tactic, expressing his initial surprise and interpreting it as a sign of disrespect towards him, despite ultimately exploiting the strategy to the Celtics’ advantage.

Despite feeling slighted by the Warriors’ defensive strategy, Brown maintained a level-headed perspective, recognizing it as a strategic decision rather than a personal affront, highlighting the competitive nature of the game.
