Draymond Green wasn’t worried about Game 2 halftime deficit, knew Warriors ‘can cover it in 10 seconds’

Draymond Green, Warriors

Although the Golden State Warriors were trailing the Toronto Raptors by five points at the end of the first half, Draymond Green was never worried that the deficit would go bigger.

Green expressed his confidence in the Warriors’ ability to come back from a huge deficit, pointing out that they would only need 10 seconds to cover the Raptors’ five-point halftime advantage.

The Dubs were down by as much as 12 points. However, come the third quarter, they unleashed their signature run and outscored the Raptors, 34-21. In turn, they turned the tables around and even went up by 13 markers at one point.

Green, as the vocal and floor leader of his team, kept on running the plays amid a hostile crowd in Toronto. Though it looked and felt like the Raptors had all the momentum, the reality was that the Warriors were never really behind.

Stephen Curry finished with 23 points, while Green tallied a near triple-double of 17 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. Klay Thompson, who went out injured in the fourth quarter, led Golden State’s scoring with 25.

Certainly, no lead is safe when you’re up against the Warriors. The Raptors know this for a fact. The series is now tied at 1-1, and the next games are certain to be even tighter now that both teams already have a good feel of each other.
