Green produced nine points (4-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt), nine assists, three rebounds, three blocks and one steal in 38 minutes during Friday's 108-85 victory over Cleveland in Game Four of the NBA Finals. Green had an impact on both ends of the floor despite not putting up his strongest numbers of the season. He played some excellent defense and changed a number of shots regardless of the player he was opposing. He has had a solid season without being spectacular as is the case with Green and should basically be in line for a mirrored performance next season. He did see his defensive numbers fall away slightly but this to be expected with the clear lack of urgency the Warriors display throughout the regular season.
Green produced 10 points (4-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists, two rebounds and two steals across 40 minutes during Golden State's 110-102 win over the Cavaliers in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday. Despite another contentious battle down low with Tristan Thompson, Green found his way to his second double-digit scoring effort over the first three games of the series. Green has made good use of his limited offensive opportunities thus far against the Cavaliers, as Wednesday's production pushed his Finals shooting percentage to a solid 52.4 percent. He's been typically impressive in both assists (8.3) and rebounds (7.0) as well, and he'll look to turn in another one of his trademark performances when the Warriors seek to lock up their third championship in four seasons during Friday's Game 4.
Green totaled five points (2-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and one block across 39 minutes during Golden State's 122-103 win over the Cavaliers in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday. One game after his infamous overtime altercation with Tristan Thompson, Green was typically productive as a facilitator and on the glass, even as he turned in a meager scoring total. However, teammates Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson ultimately combined for 79 points on 53 shot attempts -- and spot starter JaVale McGee poured in 12 points himself -- so Green's offensive contributions weren't exactly in high demand. The high-energy forward has enjoyed a solid first two games of the series overall, and his varied skill set figures to once again play an important role in Wednesday's Game 3.
Green (ankle) is not included on the Warriors' injury report in advance of Thursday's Game 1. Green emerged from Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals with a sprained ankle, but the issue never appeared to be overly serious. He was limited earlier in the week, but the fact that he's been removed from the injury report completely indicates that the Warriors don't expect the ankle to be a hindrance as the Finals get underway. Green played 44 minutes in Golden State's Game 7 victory Monday night, finishing with 10 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, a block and a steal. The big man is struggling mightily from three in the playoffs (27.7% 3PT), but he's averaging a double-double (11.1 PPG, 11.6 RPG) to go with 8.1 assists per game.
Green sprained his right ankle during Monday's Game 7 win against the Rockets, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports. Green played through the sprain during Monday's game but noted afterwards that he felt noticeable pain. It would be surprising if he sat out of Thursday's Game 1 against the Cavaliers, but he certainly could be hindered.
