Warriors’ DraymondGreen was disappointed to be pulled in fourth quarter. However, he knows he has to ‘roll’ with a hot lineup

BOSTON Draymond Green He said that he wasn't “thrilled,” when he was asked. Golden State Warriors Steve Kerr, the head coach, pulled him out of Game 4 in Boston with less than eight minutes left in the fourth quarter.

Green made two important plays on a critical possession with less than a minute left to help the Warriors win a series-evening 107-97 win. However, he had to learn to sit for almost four minutes in the middle of the fourth quarter before he was subbed out for situational defense.

Green stated that he was not thrilled to be leaving the game with just seven minutes left in the fourth quarter, in a game that must win. Green said, “I'm not going sit here and pretend like I was happy. I'm a competitor.

“But if Coach decides otherwise, you just have to accept it. I needed to keep my mind in the game, and if I was going back in, make some plays. That was all I thought.

Green continued his offensive struggles in the Finals. He missed six out of seven shots, before ending with two points and nine rebounds.

Kerr was subbed as the Celtics were up 90-86 and 7:32 left. Kevon Looney (11 rebounds, six points) Andrew Wiggins Green and Nemanja Bjelica.

After Marcus Smart To increase the lead to five, Green made a free throw from that timeout. The Warriors outscored Boston 11-3 and took a 97-94 advantage.

Kerr stated that Loon was taken out of the house and Loon was brought in at 7:40. This was our plan. Kerr explained that Loon was so good and kept it going. Jordan Poole We just kept going with the group because he was so good.”

Kerr told Green that Green wasn't thrilled to sit. He didn't see Green react, but he did say that he does not want his players to be happy being taken out.

Green is currently shooting 6-for-26 including 0-for-9 3-point range. In the Finals, he has scored 17 points and committed 18 fouls. Green is averaging 7.2 rebound and 5.7 assists.

Kerr declared, “He is the ultimate competitor.” “Came back. Huge plays down the stretch. He ends a game with four stoics, eight assists and nine boards.

He's still making a big impact on the game, even though it's a difficult series to score. He also knows that we'll do anything to win.

After Kerr made some substitutions for Green and Poole, Green's biggest play of the night was when he grabbed an offensive rebound. Klay Thompson Looney missed a 3-pointer, and Looney drove and dished to Looney for a layup. The Warriors were up 102-97 with just 1:04 remaining.

Green's late appearance in the Finals was rare.

Stephen Curry scored 43 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. “And Coach makes decisions and we as players have to make them. That Loon went in there, dominated it, got us big rebounds, and created a presence. Draymond was able to come back and give the team some life and energy on the defensive side.

“We understand that winning is all about winning. … All of us have been there. It's not enjoyable. This is not something you want to do, but it is something you accept. It's much more about Loon's trust and his ability to accomplish things than with Draymond.

Kerr stated that he would do anything to win, even if the Finals are tied at 2-2.

Green stated that “I've always believed that if something is working, it's worth sticking with,” “So it's what it is.”
