Thanks in part to a record-setting 21 3-pointers, the Golden State Warriors took a 3-1 series lead over the Houston Rockets on Sunday, yet the team’s 121-94 blowout paled in comparison to the tongue-lashing Draymond Green put on a disrespectful reporter during his post-game presser.
Green took issue with a reporter who asked about how the Dubs’ perimeter shooting might be tied to the recent floods in Houston, which claimed at least five lives and displaced thousands.
“Brother, you asked me about the flood in practice the other day,” Green told the reporter. “I said I pray for the city of Houston because you don’t want to see anyone to go through that.”
“I feel like you keep trying to get at us, like, hitting 3’s or something,” he continued. “And you’re trying to get a controversial statement out of me, but you’re not because I feel sorry for the people of Houston.”
“People are losing their homes, losing their cars,” he added. “Losing their lives, losing loved ones, and you’re trying to get a controversial statement out of me. … You’re not getting that out of me.”
“That’s not cool, man.”
