As observed, it seemed that the play was about to be botched by Draymond Green. But thanks to his great court awareness and knowledge of the whereabouts of his teammates, he was able to create something out of nothing. He knew that Klay Thompson, as usual, was just camping behind the arc, waiting for a pass.
It was Green’s first game back after missing 11 games due to a right toe injury. And the clip proves how critical Green is to the Warriors’ offense. He’s tagged as a point-forward — one who can perfectly orchestrate the team’s plays given his ball-handling ability and great size.
With Draymond Green back in the lineup, head coach Steve Kerr expects the Warriors to be better.
“I would think the game would get faster and we should be better defensively with Draymond out there,” Kerr said. “Hopefully we can get some stops and Draymond can push the ball in transition. That’s something we have done for many years, so it would be nice to see.”
Moving forward, everyone should also expect more plays such as the clip above from the Warriors. With their players fully healthy, they are an unstoppable force. DeMarcus Cousins, too, is close to a hundred percent. The NBA might be in for a show in a few weeks.
