Draymond Green claims one crucial victory over Jayson Tatum after Warriors’ loss to Celtics
While Tatum pretty much owned Green in every facet in their match-up, the three-time NBA champion just referenced their Subway commercial to get even.
“Incredible. That was a big boy performance by him. Especially missing Jaylen Brown. He stepped up and put those guys on his back. But yeah, my sub’s still better though,” Green said of Tatum, per Nick Friedell of ESPN.
Green is obviously talking about that hilarious skit for Subway, where the two went back-and-forth about who owns the better sandwich. While the Cs young star made some valid points, the Warriors vet put an end to the discussion when he suggested that his subway has “more rings.” Tatum’s only retort was that his sandwich had bacon on it.
Jayson Tatum showed no love for his subway pal Draymond Green, as he torched him with a team-high 44 points on 16-for-25 shooting from the field that include five triples, as well as 10 boards, three dimes and two steals in 40 minutes. The 23-year-old scorer was hot from the get-go, dropping 23 points in the first half.
He did not slow down one bit in the final two quarters, as Tatum spoiled Stephen Curry’s game-high 47 points for the Warriors.
Green, on the other hand, only had five points for the Warriors in 37 minutes, but he did scatter 10 assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block in 37 minutes.
Sure, Green may have the better sandwich over Tatum. Too bad he couldn’t trade that for a W for the Warriors on Saturday.
