Kevon Looney was highly regarded by Draymond Green's performance throughout Game 2, as the latter showed his bottle at both ends of the floor in a 114-11 peak over Portland Trail Tasters Thursday. The Golden State Warriors engine was at the forefront of the return of the team in the third quarter and dealt with fierce difficulty in the fourth quarter, despite being in fifth position with 7:40 remaining in regulation.
“Probably the most intelligent player on the court every time he goes out there,” said Looney on Green, according to Marcus Thompson II of the Athletic. “And it plays harder than everyone. It's always fun and speaks to everyone through each play. And he also has that intimidating factor. ”
Green was intimidating in the first quarter, running four shots before the end of the period and taking the heroes into the game, despite a rapid and balanced attack from a hungry team.
Teammate supports Andre Iguodala with Looney claims.
“It's smart. He is stronger than he looks, and his arms are very long, ”said Iguodala de Green. “I have seen that it brings people out completely. Think of what he did with Gasol Mark? ”
Looney has learned much of his defense play through Green teachings, and is considered to be one of the Warriors' priorities to resurrect this summer after Klay Thompson.
Unlike other first class defenders, Green's ability to start the break and create a leakage portion from his defense plays is likely to be a catalyst for this integrated championship team.
