VIDEO: Warriors star Draymond Green flexes on Zion Williamson after tight and-1 play
Draymond Green came up big for the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night as they took on the New Orleans Pelicans. Green scored on a tight and-1 play to tie the game late in the fourth period and he made sure to make Zion Williamson know about it.
Zion struggled to keep Green at bay in this particular play so it isn’t at all surprising that Dray busted out the muscle-flex gesture on him after making the shot (h/t Warriors on Twitter):

Williamson knew that the Warriors star got the better of him on the play so he refused to look in Green’s direction. We’re pretty sure Dray had a thing or two to say after that tremendous effort, which Zion clearly wanted no part of.
Green was his usual chatty self throughout the Pelicans game. Earlier in the contest, he had a bit of a heated exchange with New Orleans guard Lonzo Ball. Dray wasn’t done, and he decided to turn his attention on Zion on this particular instance.
Williamson, Ball, and the rest of the Pelicans had the last laugh though, with the game ending 108-103 in favor of New Orleans. Green flirted with another triple-double but not even his all-around effort was enough to lift the Warriors to victory.
