Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green made a costly turnover at the end of his team’s 104-101 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 4 on Monday night, and Dennis Schroder was loving it.
Schroder went viral for his hilarious reaction to the turnover, making a truly meme-worthy troll face at his opponent after he threw the ball into the hands of Anthony Davis.

Green has been known for his trash talk, amid other antics, on the court. And Schroder couldn’t help but enjoy No. 23’s game-ending turnover. Green tossed the ball away as the final seconds of the game were ticking down in a contest that the Warriors trailed by just three.
The devious smile came just seconds before the Lakers took a commanding 3-1 series lead in their best-of-7 NBA Playoffs series. They rallied in the fourth quarter led by an incredible final period from Lonnie Walker.
Schroder finished the game with a modest 10 points, three rebounds and three assists over 34 minutes on the court, while Green’s eight points, 10 boards and seven assists weren’t enough for his Golden State Warriors.
It was a thrilling game from start to finish, but it was Schroder and the Lakers who got the last laugh at Crypto.com Arena on Monday night. Walker was the hero for Los Angeles, scoring all 15 of his points in the fourth quarter as his team put the Warriors on the ropes.
The Lakers are just one win away from an unlikely trip to the Western Conference Finals as the No. 7 seed in 2022-23.
