Draymond Green Registers Third Straight Triple-Double (VIDEO)

by January 05, 2016

For the seventh time this season, and third in a row, Draymond Green ended his work day with a triple-double.

Green had 13 points, fifteen rebounds and ten assists Monday night in the Golden State Warriors’ 111-101 win against the visiting Charlotte Hornets.

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 60 points in the victory, and the Dubs welcomed back Harrison Barnes to the lineup.

Per the SF Chronicle:

Stephen Curry got back on the court, Harrison Barnes made a reappearance, and the Warriors returned to being unbeatable. […] Curry had 30 points two nights after reinjuring his left shin, Barnes added eight points after a 16-game hiatus, and the Warriors breezed to a 111-101 victory over Charlotte on Monday at Oracle Arena.


Curry, who left in the second quarter Saturday after getting kicked in the shin, played 32 free-moving minutes. […] “I didn’t even think Steph was going to play tonight, to be honest,” Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton said. “… If Steph Curry is going to play, then I’m never surprised that he’s going to score 30 points.”


The returns of Curry and Barnes were almost enough to overshadow Draymond Green, who was named Western Conference Player of the Week on Monday morning and then backed up the honor with his third straight triple-double. […] “You can’t say enough good things about him,” Walton said. “He brings it, he plays both ends of the court, he’s unselfish and yet he can knock down jumpers and get to the rim and score. He’s just an all-around basketball player, and it’s great to see someone like that having success like this.”
