Draymond Green was phenomenal in Game 4 vs the Pelicans on Sunday.
In 37 minutes, he racked up eight points, nine rebounds, nine assists, four steals and two blocks.
He went 2-for-4 from 3-point territory and was a team-best +28.
Additionally, Anthony Davis went 8-for-22 from the field with six turnovers and Draymond had a lot to do with that.
But there's more.
According to NBA.com's "hustle stats," Draymond registered:
- 21 contested shots (to put this in context -- he was averaging just under 14 through the first eight playoff games, and Steven Adams leads with 16.7 per game)
- 8 screen assists (led the Warriors)
- 8 boxouts (led the Warriors)
- 4 deflections (led the Warriors)
- 3 loose balls recovered (second to Andre Iguodala's four)
During the regular season, there were people across the basketball world who believed the Warriors were vulnerable -- with one main reason being that "Draymond has lost a step," or "Draymond isn't the same player."
Those people forgot that it was the regular season and that things would change in the postseason.
As Steve Kerr said after the Warriors' Game 2 win over the Pelicans -- Draymond's "been saving himself for the playoffs."
