Draymond Green discusses his desire to finish off the Rockets immediately
Tonight, the Golden State Warriors will look to take down the Houston Rockets to complete the first round series victory. It won’t be as easy as most experts had predicted going into the playoffs now that Stephen Curry will be out for at least two weeks with a knee sprain.
Still, after losing Game 3, they rallied to beat Houston when Curry was ruled out for the rest of the game at halftime. Everybody stepped up, and they’ll need that same kind of performance and effort tonight.
Draymond Green is undoubtedly the catalyst for this Warriors squad, motivating his teammates with his tremendous hustle and competitive drive.
As Game 5 approaches, Green has a simple message for his teammates. From Marc Spears of ESPN:
“Our mentality going into Wednesday is simply to close this series out. Let’s not let this series linger on. We know what the Rockets are capable of when you let them linger around. We need to take control of the game from the start and close this series out.”
The action begins this evening at 10:30 p.m. ET on TNT.
