Draymond Green guarantees Warriors will beat Rockets in Western Conference finals




 

Warriors coach Steve Kerr is confident despite his team trailing the Rockets 3-2 in the Western Conference finals.

Golden State forward Draymond Green goes further.

Green, via Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic:

Of course, Green is confident. He'd never say he expects his team to lose.

But he didn't need to frame it this way. He could've said he was just focused on the next game rather than make such a bold proclamation.

He's taking pressure upon himself and putting his reputation on the line. If Golden State loses, especially in Game 6 at home with Chris Paul out, Green will be widely mocked.

If he and the Warriors pull through, he'll probably deserve praise for setting a tone that helped them advance.
