Draymond Green confident the Warriors can flip the switch
Many have described the team as vulnerable, but the reigning Defensive Player of the Year warned that if there is a team able to flip the switch, it’s them.
“There should always be a question in your mind if that switch is going to flip,” said Green, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic. “Nonetheless, if anyone’s capable of it, we are.”
The Warriors have now suffered 30 and 40-point losses after a season finale 119-79 loss to the Utah Jazz, successfully avoiding any scenario in which these two teams would face each other in the first round.
The Jazz’ clamp-like defense and Golden State’s inability to score could present a nightmare matchup in the first round, with the Jazz having the mental and physical edge, with a healthy team down the stretch.
While other teams have hit the ground running, the Warriors have looked more and more human than ever before and the air of invincibility hasn’t been there as it did in the last three seasons — an ominous sight after the team shot a woeful 35 percent from the field.
