Draymond Green reacts to Warriors’ blowout loss to Lakers
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green put things in perspective after a 120-94 blowout loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday. The defensive ace has been a perennial winner for the past five-plus years but is facing the other side of the coin with a dismantled roster full of young faces.
The Warriors only led through short stretches of the opening minute of play, forced to play catch up the rest of the way. Green, however, didn’t feel too bad after the defeat.
“There’s a lot of things in life that are super hard to deal with. I wouldn’t consider losing a basketball game one of them,” said Green after the Warriors’ fifth straight loss, according to Ben Golliver of The Washington Post. “I hate losing so it’s frustrating to lose every night. But I wouldn’t say that’s super hard to deal with. There’s bigger issues in life.”
The organization has gotten a mighty fall from grace after being at the pinnacle of NBA success the past half-decade, mostly due to a slew of injuries that keeps affecting this roster — now with only nine able bodies to trot on the court.
The Warriors are quickly careening to the bottom of the Western Conference, something that could eventually help them bounce back if they land a high pick in the upcoming 2020 NBA Draft.
