Warriors’ Draymond Green Fueled ‘Attitude Adjustment’ in Game 2 Win
Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was intent on setting the tone for their Game 2 tilt against the Boston Celtics in the 2022 NBA Finals, and his intensity helped the Warriors even the series at one-game-apiece with a blowout victory.
Green gave the Warriors the “attitude adjustment” in their convincing 1-7-88 blowout win over the Celtics.
“It was definitely an attitude adjustment,” Green said, according to ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk. “They are who we thought they were. So we knew we had to keep our foot on the gas pedal and not let up, and we did that.”
Green frustrated Celtics forward Al Horford to start the game and raised the level of intensity that bothered the Celtics shooters throughout the game.
“Guys follow me on that side of the ball,” Green said. “If I’m not sending a message, who is sending that message?”
“I thought everybody was more engaged,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “It was pretty obvious, just our level of force and physicality was ramped up quite a bit, and it had to be.”
“We put ourselves right back in position to take control of the series,” Green said. “Now we haven’t taken control of it yet. But we have put ourselves in position to go and take control of it.”
