Since Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals, however, Green has kept his emotions in check.
The Portland Trail Blazers need a win to save their season and force a game five on Wednesday. Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he isn't sure exactly when the injury occurred, but after Iguodala later returned to the game, he was taken out in the third quarter and did not return.
Last night's Game 3 is only behind ESPN's Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics Game 3 in 2012 (5.6 metered market rating) as the network's highest rated Conference Finals Game 3 ever.
"I don't think it's something that's affecting my game", Lillard insisted to reporters Sunday. The final score was 110-99, giving the Warriors a solid 3-0 series lead. "There's nothing you can really do about it". Thompson added his usual two-way effort, executing on offense and locking down on defense, contributing: 19 points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals, and two blocks.
"I just laughed, man", Bell told The Athletic. "So, we've just got to keep pushing forward, and as I said, we can rest in the summer".
"It's amusing because when the stuff happened with Kevin earlier this year, he said, like, 'Everybody is giving you this pass like, Oh, that's just Draymond".
"There's not much you can do to increase my level of respect for him", said Cj McCollum.
"I understand who he is as a person to the core, so it's an unfortunate situation and injury to have to fight through, but he's a strong person, and understanding what's at stake".
The Trail Blazers held double-digit half-time leads in each of the past two games.
Portland leading scorer Damian Lillard has had a hard time with a hovering Golden State defense and, with his team facing elimination from the NBA Western Conference finals, the Trail Blazer All-Star has a decision to make. "It's tough because you're not always going to get a quality look, and then when you do get a quality look and don't make it, that just kind of makes it worse".
