Draymond ‘wouldn't want to' play Warriors in NBA playoffs


Draymond Green wouldn't want any piece of the Warriors in the NBA playoffs.

The star forward spoke with NBC Sports Bay Area after Friday night's win over the Denver Nuggets at Chase Center, explaining why he feels the team's confidence is building at the right time.

"It's great to come back out here, first game with Dub Nation here, come out and get a win, that was an important win for us, we need to continue to build on it," Green said on "Warriors Postgame Live" after the victory. "As far as teams wanting to see us in the playoffs, I wouldn't want to. I wouldn't want to play any team with Steph Curry on it, so that's just me though, maybe nobody else care, but I wouldn't want to."

Green finished with just two points, but he earned a double-double regardless thanks to an astounding 19 assists along with 12 rebounds.

Curry, who is amid one of the best stretches of his NBA career, battled through some foot pain early to finish with 32 points and eight rebounds.

The Warriors almost certainly will be among the four Western Conference teams competing in the first-ever NBA Play-In Tournament, where the squads will duke it out for the seventh and eighth seeds in the playoffs.

With the tournament a win-and-you're-in format, a player of Curry's caliber can be the difference. Very few, if any players around the league are operating at a similar level this season, and when he gets hot, Curry virtually is impossible to slow down.

Whomever the Warriors draw in that play-in tournament certainly will have their hands full with Steph playing at such a high level.
