The Golden State Warriors have been doing a lot more losing this season than Draymond Green is accustomed to, so he is taking his wins wherever he can.
After the Warriors downed the Minnesota Timberwolves 113-104 on Monday night to win consecutive games for the first time all year, the former Defensive Player of the Year joked about their “streak.”
“It feels f—ing amazing,” said Green, per Nick Friedell of ESPN. “I never thought I would be so excited for two regular-season wins in my life.”
After making the NBA Finals in each of the last five seasons, it is a new era in Golden State with Andre Iguodala and Kevin Durant gone and Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson injured. Green has been the last man standing of sorts, and the Warriors are a Western Conference-worst 7-24, even despite the winning streak.
The three-time champion was talking a lot of smack, even as recently as last summer, so now he knows what it is like to have the shoe on the other foot.
