Warriors’ Draymond Green blasts Bucks for Giannis Antetokounmpo mistake vs. Nets

Draymond Green Warriors Giannis Antetokounmpo Bucks

Draymond Green has never been afraid to let his voice be heard. The Golden State Warriors star was vocal on Twitter on the Milwaukee Bucks’ misuse of Giannis Antetokounmpo in Game 1 against the Brooklyn Nets.

The Warriors star sounded off on what the Bucks were doing wrong:

“If the bucks want to win this series, they have to go away from the Giannis pick and roll as the handler. It’s too predictable in a SEVEN game series against a team with equal or more talent.”

“They have not done a good job putting him in positions to be successful in the playoffs. It is NOT the same game.”

Draymond Green knows a thing or two about the night-and-day difference between the NBA Playoffs and the regular season. The former DPOY has figured in a total of 23 playoff series with the Warriors, playing in 124 postseason contests thus far.

The Warriors star’s comments aren’t exactly groundbreaking when it comes to Milwaukee. The Bucks, particularly under coach Mike Budenholzer, have been criticized in the past for being a regular-season team. Coach Bud has been flamed for not making the necessary adjustments when things get testy in the playoffs, which has led to their early exits in years past.

The Warriors big man continued

The battle between the Nets and Bucks is a stylistic one, both on the court and off of it. Milwaukee constructed its team through years of slow building, spearheaded by a drafted and developed franchise player. Meanwhile, Brooklyn served as a hub to cater to three superstars who wanted to play together to win an NBA championship. It looks like bought beat built here, at least for one game.
