This is a video analysis of Draymond Green and his fine offensive and defensive plays to help the Warriors close out the Pelicans in the Nov 25 2017 game.

Draymond Green had only 6 PTS, 7 REB and 8 AST, as he was saddled with 5 fouls early in the third period. But when he came back in during crunch time in the fourth quarter, he came through with a number of excellent plays on both ends of the court.

Here is a quick video appreciation. Part of the subtext is that Draymond was the only available who could bother Anthony Davis, so he had to use his defensive creativity to stay on Davis and harass him without fouling out.

    will be a great Warrior someday soon. Curry hugged him, so it’s practically official.
