At TD Garden on Wednesday, the Boston Celtics’ home crowd chanted “Fu*k you Draymond” and “Draymond Sucks,” throughout the night, showing their disdain and mocking Golden States Warriors forward Draymond Green.
Green had a tough night and didn’t play well in Game 3 of the NBA Finals as the Warriors lost 116-100 to the Boston Celtics. Green collected more fouls than points.
As soon as he stepped on the court, the Celtics supporters immediately started booing him and making it plain that they were back with the playoff enthusiasm they are renowned for.
Despite being fouled out with just four minutes remaining, Green had no impact on the game for the Dubs. After Game 2, all of his trash-talking turned on him, and he performed poorly as a result. For Game 3, no one expected Green to live up to the hype. He only scored two points, had two turnovers, three assists, four rebounds, and six fouls.
Green’s contribution on Wednesday was one of his lowest totals in the thirty Finals games he has played in his professional career. His four rebounds is also one of Green’s lowest. Before this game, Green was averaging 6.9 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 8.7 points per game, making him one of the most effective players in the league.
Green has a reputation for speaking his mind. He isn’t afraid to speak his mind, even if it means criticizing himself. After losing the game, Green was questioned by the media about his play and how he felt about the outcome. He kept his response short and to the point.
“Like s***,” Green said.
This isn’t Green’s first time committing a foul. Even in the first game, he had already fouled out.
Green went all over the Celtics’ players during the game, continually attempting to get under their skin. Whether or not this was done on purpose is currently unknown. During the free throw rebound struggle between Green and Celtics players, an unpleasant brawl broke out.
The Game 3 Finals was by far the finest match of the tournament, as both teams went on a number of incredible runs and it all went down to the fourth quarter. For the first two quarters, the Celtics held a commanding advantage and were in complete control of the game.
Stephen Curry scored 15 points in the third quarter, and the Warriors came back to power the game from being behind by 18 points. However, the good fortune didn’t stay long enough to triumph the entire tournament.
With Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart supporting the Jayson Tatum-led Celtics, they didn’t give up after the Warriors’ godlike third-quarter run. The Boston kept tuned in to stop the Warriors to just 11 points in the fourth quarter, which ultimately won the game for them.
In the end, Green didn’t do much good, and his ramblings were even worse. With a final score of 116-100 in favor of the Celtics, the Dubs suffered a humiliating 16-point defeat. The NBA Finals are now 2-1 in favor of the Celtics.
For the upcoming matchup, we may expect an exciting Game 4 of the NBA Finals that take place on June 11, 2022. Green’s performance in the next game is still up in the air, but one thing that fans can expect is he will be honest with himself afterward.
