NBA Western Conference Finals will offer us the spectacle we have been all waiting for. Reigning NBA champions Golden State Warriors will go head to head with the best team in the regular season, Houston Rockets. While the Rockets have said multiple times that they are obsessed with beating the Warriors, it doesn’t seem like it’s the other way around. At least according to Warriors’ forward Draymond Green.
Speaking to the reporters after the 113-104 win against the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night, Green said that the Warriors team just “want to win another championship and that they “don’t matter who’s in the way of that.”
“Man, we won two championships in three years. We’re not about to run off talking about how bad we want to play somebody,” – said Green. “We want to win another championship, and it don’t matter who’s in the way of that. If you’re in the way of that, then you happen to be in the way.“
“We’ve got a goal. Whoever is in the way of that goal, then we got to see you. You got to see us. All right now, they’re in the way. Perfect. But we’re not running around talking about, ‘Man, we want them bad.’ Nah, we want a championship bad. Another one.” – he added.
In the series against the New Orleans Pelicans, Draymond Green proved to be a crucial player for the Warriors once again, becoming the first player in the franchise’s history to average a triple-double in the playoffs. In five games, Green averaged 14.8 points, 11.8 rebounds and 10 assists per game. He will have to step once again in the Western Conference Finals since the Houston Rockets will not go down without a big fight.
The first game of the series between the Warriors and the Rockets is scheduled for tip off on Monday, May 14, at 9 p.m. in Houston.
