Green recorded 21 points (7-11 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal across 33 minutes during a 128-103 win over the Trail Blazers on Monday. Green excelled as he helped the team finish off its first round series. He was in rare form on the offensive end, as the 21 points marked his third-highest scoring total so far this season, and the five three-pointers made matched a season high. Green had a phenomenal first round, with averages of 13.8 points on 50 percent from the field, 9.5 rebounds, 7.5 assists, 4.3 blocks and 1.5 steals per game.
Green tallied six points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds, 10 assists, three blocks and a steal across 30 minutes in Wednesday's 110-81 win over the TrailBlazers. Green would have most likely recorded a triple-double if the Warriors hadn't absolutely embarrassed Portland on Wednesday, as Golden State's starters gave way to the second and third unit for a good portion of the second half. An obvious candidate for Defensive Player of the Year, Green provides a variety of intangibles that don't necessarily show up on a stat line, but Wednesday's contest is a perfect example of how he can dominate a game defensively. He is a great cash play in DFS playoff matches, although there is always a risk that he'll sit if a game gets out of hand. The Warriors travel to Portland on Saturday as they try and stretch their series lead to 3-0, and Green will definitely play a pivotal role in the outcome.
Green finished with 19 points (6-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-7 FT), 12 rebounds, nine assists, five blocks and three steals across 37 minutes during Sunday's 121-109 victory over the Trail Blazers. It was an absolutely monster night for the Defensive Player of the Year candidate, racking up a combined eight steals and blocks while also being just one assist shy of a triple-double. Green made easy work of opposing coach Terry Stotts' weak frontcourt with starting center Jusuf Nurkic (lower leg) sidelined, bullying Noah Vonleh and Maurice Harkless. As long as Nurkic is in street clothes, there doesn't appear to be anyone at the moment that can check Green, making him one of the most enticing DFS options in the series.
Green has been ruled out of Wednesday's tilt with Lakers for rest purposes, Ethan Strauss of ESPN.com reports. Green and Andre Iguodala will spend the regular-season finale on the sideline as they rest up for the playoffs. Green ends the regular season averaging 10.2 points, 7.9 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.4 blocks over 33 minutes per game in 76 contests. Look for David West and James McAdoo to see the bulk of minutes at power forward Wednesday as Green shifts his focus to a first-round matchup with the Trail Blazers.
Green mustered five points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block over 25 minutes in Monday's 105-99 loss to the Jazz. With Stephen Curry (knee) back in the lineup, Green saw a notable drop in production, even as key offensive component Klay Thompson sat for rest. Green has single-digit scoring efforts in four of the last six games, but he remains capable of filling out the stat sheet in the remaining categories when given sufficient playing time. The 27-year-old will be a fourth offensive option in the postseason when Curry, Kevin Durant and Thompson are all on the court together, although he'll still be expected to contribute heavily on the glass and as a ball distributor.
