Programming note: Warriors-Rockets coverage starts tonight at 6:30pm on NBC Sports Bay Area, and continues immediately after the final buzzer.
A couple weeks ago, Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said something about the Warriors that made headlines.
"You're not gonna stop them. It's just not gonna happen. They're not gonna stop us either. Should be fun."
On Monday, Draymond Green was asked about D'Antoni's comments.
"You should believe that. I'm turning over a new leaf," Draymond began, before giving his real thoughts. "Number 1 -- they want it to be a shootout, which is fine. But we're gonna play some defense.
"We score pretty well, but we're a damn good defensive team, too. So we're gonna play some defense."
The Rockets made some significant changes to their roster this offseason, most notably the addition of Chris Paul.
But Houston also added defensive-minded guys in P.J. Tucker and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.
But as Draymond pointed out:
"I don't know how serious they take defense with that comment, but I know they added some good defensive players."
