Draymond Green cranks up Clippers-Warriors rivalry, calls Doc Rivers ‘Glenn’

Dahntay Jones bumped Draymond Green during Green’s postgame interview, and Green made a point to chastise Jones afterward. That earned Jones a fine for an incident that could have easily gone unnoticed.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers chastised Green for making this an issue:

“I guess that tough guy in Golden State, the bump was too hard for him, clearly, the way he reacted,” Rivers said. “My goodness. I thought the guy was tough. Anyway, that’s my take on it.”

Calling Rivers by his give name is hardly an insult in a vacuum. In this context, it’s very clear Green intends it as a dig – and that’s enough for it to land.

Clippers-Warriors is the NBA’s best rivalry. This just made it a little better.

The teams next play March 31. Hopefully, they meet again in the playoffs.
