Green registered a triple-double in Game 6 of the NBA Finals Tuesday night—16 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists—helping the Dubs clinch their first title in four decades.
An exuberant Green called the final battle with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers a “dogfight.”
Per the SF Chronicle:
“Game 7, what is that?!?!” Green yelled. “I told y’all it was over!!! Game 7!!! Don’t need it!!!”
No, the Warriors didn’t, especially after Green had 16 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in Game 6 for the first triple-double by a Warrior in the Finals in franchise history. (And the first triple-double in Warriors postseason history since Guy Rodgers in 1962.) […] “Strategy is great, but that was a dogfight,” Green said. “It wasn’t basketball anymore; it was a fight.”
“I’ll do anything to help the team,” Green said. “Guard anybody. Don’t matter how big they are. Heart over height.” […] Green had struggled the first three games of the series, scoring 29 points on 8-for-30 shooting with 23 rebounds and 8 assists. The last three games, after he spoke to his teammates and said he had to play harder and they should, too, Green had 47 points on 16-for-33 shooting, 26 rebounds and 22 assists.
