The Golden State Warriors dispatched the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday after a spirited Game 1, 121-109. Portland kept the game close for three quarters, but the Warriors pulled away late with decimating defense in the fourth period.
Part of that defensive effort was Draymond Green putting on what can only be described as a block party. Green, an NBA Defensive Player of the Year candidate, came up with several huge blocks during prominent plays.
One of his five blocks came with the Warriors forward as the only defender back on a 1-on-2 break.
Then in the fourth quarter, Blazers PG Damian Lillard slashed through traffic and tried to yam it home on Green.
It was ill-advised:
Game 2 is in Oakland on Wednesday, April 19 at 7:30 PM PST on TNT.
