The Golden State Warriors wrapped up their second round playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers in just five games, but the series was anything but easy, and Draymond Green knows it.

The defending champs were without the services of two-time reigning MVP Stephen Curry for the first three games of the series, and all five games were hard earned victories. In the final four games, Portland led at halftime, and the Blazers likely would have tied the series at 2-2 in Game 4 if not for Curry coming alive at the end of the game for an NBA-record 17 overtime points.

Green tweeted after the Warriors clinched a berth in the Western Conference Finals for the second straight year:

Led by Damian Lillard, the Blazers surely have a lot to look forward to. Unfortunately for them, they'll have to wait at home for the rest of this year's playoffs, and possibly watch the Warriors repeat as champs.
