Warriors forward Draymond Green notches unicorn stat line not done in 36 years

Warriors, Draymond Green

The Golden State Warriors made history in their 118-96 win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday, as it was their 11th straight home victory by 13 points or more. However, that wasn’t the only piece of history to occur during the victory. Warriors forward Draymond Green produced a unicorn stat line not seen in the NBA in 36 years.

Warriors forward Draymond Green is often criticized for how small of an impact he makes scoring the ball. However, this is a serious stat line by Green here. He did a little bit of everything for Golden State and was absolutely pivotal to their victory, particularly on the defensive end of the floor.

Green had nine combined blocks and steals, a herculean defensive effort. But that’s nothing new for Warriors fans to hear, as the veteran forward has been in the running for the Defensive Player of the Year award since the season started.

The only thing that would have made this line any better for Green and the Warriors was if it was a triple double. Even still, it’s amazing that no one has compiled a box score line like that since 1985.

To cap it off, Green was a +25 in the Warriors’ win, the highest total of any player in the game. That, and this unicorn stat line, is what makes Draymond Green such an effective NBA player for the Warriors.
