Video: Draymond Green gets and-1 and savagely screams in Nikola Mirotic’s face
Draymond Green had yet another night of inspired play, running the break with his usual havoc-wreaking fashion, this time taking it coast-to-coast against New Orleans Pelicans forward Nikola Mirotic and finishing the layup over him.
The Golden State Warriors engine was feeling it, celebrating with his usual scream, only this time in Mirotic’s face before going to the line to finish the and-one opportunity.

Green was a catalyst, once again factoring in on this win that had his fingerprints all over it, despite the jolt of energy provided by Stephen Curry’s long-awaited return to the court.
The Michigan State product totaled 20 points, nine rebounds, and 12 assists — falling a board short of a second-consecutive triple-double, after posting 16 points, 15 rebounds, and 11 assists in Game 1 of the series.
Green’s energetic play didn’t stop there, adding two blocks and a steal, as well as two key 3-pointers in the fourth quarter that helped carve a lead in the fourth quarter, one the defending champions would carry into victory.
