Draymond Green is confident in the Golden State Warriors’ chances of bouncing back to win Game 5 after losing in both Game 3 and Game 4 at the Oklahoma City Thunder in blowouts.
“This team, this group of guys, we haven’t been in an elimination situation [since 2014]. So it’s different,” said Green. “But I also know this team knows how to lock in. I know this team knows how to play tough. I know this team knows how to play like our lives depended on it. And I have no doubt in my mind that we will win [Game 5]. No doubt about that. I absolutely expect to be back here and I look forward to it.”
Green has blamed himself for the Warriors’ struggles.
“It’s no shocker to me that we’re down 3-1 because I haven’t been there for two games. I wish I had the answer [as to why]. I don’t have the answer. But I know I will change it. It’s not too late. That’s why it’s a seven-game series. They have to beat us to four [wins]. We go home. Take care of home court. Get something to feel good about. And then we battle. But we have to come out Thursday like our lives depend on it. I have no doubt in my mind that this team will respond.”
