Draymond Green Takes Accountability for Warriors’ Loss to Nuggets

In the aftermath of the Golden State Warriors’ 119-103 loss to the Denver Nuggets, Draymond Green acknowledged his role in the defeat during the “Draymond Green Show” podcast. Green, who was a team-worst minus-23, took responsibility for his performance and recognized the need to facilitate more touches for teammate Klay Thompson, particularly in the second half.

Despite Thompson’s strong first-half performance with 23 points, he went scoreless in the second half, impacting the Warriors’ offensive flow. Green expressed a commitment to ensuring Thompson gets more opportunities, despite the adjustment to Thompson coming off the bench.

Green admitted to the challenge posed by Nuggets center Nikola Jokić, who dominated with a triple-double of 32 points, 16 assists, and 16 rebounds. Despite the struggle, Green chose a lighthearted perspective, stating, “either you laugh or you cry,” emphasizing the need to move forward.

Reflecting on the loss, Green emphasized flushing it away and turning focus towards the upcoming game against the Washington Wizards. With a determination to get back on the winning track, Green aims to contribute positively in the Warriors’ pursuit of playoff positioning.

The Warriors, with a record of 29-27, are currently vying for playoff seeding in a competitive Western Conference. Green anticipates a strong response in their next game against the Wizards, aiming to rebound from the recent setback.
