Draymond Green Wishes Opponents Would Compete ‘A Little Harder’ Against The Cavaliers
Apparently, Draymond Green just wants to see some good and competitive basketball.
The Golden State Warriors forward has found it very difficult to watch the Cleveland Cavaliers during this postseason, saying the lack of competition in the Eastern Conference has made their games “boring.”
“I thought teams would compete a little harder,” Green told Anthony Slater of the Bay Area News Group. “I just watched San Antonio-(Houston). I like to watch good basketball. When you watch Cleveland play, you only watching one side of good basketball. That’s kind of weak. I like watching a good game, not even necessarily that it’s going to be a close game. I like to watch teams playing good basketball. When you watch them, you watch one team playing good basketball and everybody else just…do something. I don’t know what that something is.”
First, the Indiana Pacers did absolutely nothing to put fear in the heart of the Cavaliers as they got swept in four games. The Toronto Raptors weren’t any better as they were forced to play the final two games without Kyle Lowry as they met the same fate the Indiana Pacers did.
Despite being undefeated in the playoffs just like the Cavs – Green at least gave the Utah Jazz some credit on being competitive during the series.
“But Utah is still playing good basketball,” Green said. “Regardless if they win or not, I think we’re a better team, but at the same time, they still play a good brand of basketball.”
The Warriors go for their second consecutive sweep on Monday as they face the Utah Jazz at Vivint Smart Home Arena.
