Draymond Green in Elite Company With Game 1 Triple-double Vs. Raptors

With Kevin Durant out of the lineup due to a right calf strain, Draymond Green has turned his play up a notch.

In Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors, the Warriors forward finished with 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

Dating back to the Western Conference finals against the Portland Trail Blazers, this was Green's third straight triple-double.

According to ESPN Stats & Info, Green is the third player in NBA history to record three straight postseason triple-doubles. The other two with at least three straight? Wilt Chamberlain and Russell Westbrook. Chamberlain accomplished the feat four straight times in 1967.

Not bad company for Green.

Green now has five triple-doubles this postseason, putting him in a tie with Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson for the third-most in a single postseason.

If Green were to record a fourth straight triple-double in Game 2 against the Raptors on Sunday, he would match Chamberlain's record and tie Johnson for the second-most in a single postseason.

After losing Game 1 in Toronto, the Warriors are going to need everything Green has to offer in order to send the series to Oakland all even.
