Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was full of praise for Draymond Green after Saturday’s win over the Portland Trail Blazers. Power forward Green was one of the standout performers at the Moda Center, recording the seventh postseason triple-double of his career, as the Warriors sealed a 110-99 victory over the Trail Blazers to move into a 3-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals.

The 29-year-old, whose form was called into question earlier in the season, registered 20 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists, four steals and a block during Game Three and he was singled out for particular praise by Kerr. “I don’t even know what to say about Draymond,” Kerr proclaimed.
“He was like a wrecking ball out there. He was just destroying everything in his path. “It’s one of the best games I’ve ever seen Draymond play.” Green has certainly stepped up to the plate following the injury suffered by Kevin Durant in the Conference Semifinals against the Houston Rockets and Trail Blazers coach Terry Stots also felt the three-time NBA All-Star was the difference maker on Saturday night.
“He was the difference maker,” Stots said. “His energy, the way he was pushing the ball kept them going and he has such an impact on the game on both ends. Obviously, he’s the player of the game tonight.” Golden State are now on the brink of reaching the NBA Finals for the fifth straight year and they can seal their place with a victory in Game Four against the Trail Blazers on Monday.
