Draymond Green has rare 5×5 game as Warriors stay undefeated

8 Comments

It wasn’t pretty, but the Warriors’ unprecedented start to the season continued with a 124-119 double-overtime road win over the Celtics. With Klay Thompson out, the greater burden fell on Stephen Curry, who scored 38 points despite shooting just 9-for-27 from the field. But the reason the Warriors won the game was Draymond Green, who was everywhere. He put up the first 5×5 game the NBA has seen since Nicolas Batum did it in 2012, scoring 24 points along with 11 rebounds, 8 assists, 5 steals and 5 blocks. His line put him in some pretty good company:

The Warriors finish off their seven-game road trip tomorrow in Milwaukee, likely still without Thompson.
