Yesterday – facing no pressure from the Grizzlies in a tie game in crunch time – the Warriors forward didn’t show nearly enough.
Green casually walked the ball up and didn’t cross mid-court within eight seconds, a violation and turnover.

Green is one of the NBA’s smartest players. Which seems strange to point out repeatedly after these absurd gaffes. But it’s true. His defensive recognition, court vision and screening savvy are next level.
This was that bad, though.
After the lost possession, Golden State lost to Memphis in overtime.
