Draymond earns first NBA 'Arena of Heroes' award in Dubs' win

Warriors

Draymond Green once again etched his name in NBA history on Monday night, becoming the first Marvel "Arena of Heroes" champion in the Warriors' 123-108 win over the New Orleans Pelicans at Smoothie King Center.

Green finished with 48 "Hero Points," the most among any of the players from either team. Green finished with 10 points, 13 rebounds and 15 assists in 36 minutes. Hero points are calculated by adding up a player's points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks and then subtracting missed field goals, missed free throws and turnovers from that total.

The game between the Warriors and Pelicans was part of ESPN's "Arena of Heroes" broadcast, promoting the Marvel Universe.

Draymond also finished with his seventh 15-plus assist game of the season, the most ever among a non-guard in NBA history.

The Warriors won the first of what will be a pivotal series of two games with the Pelicans, the team a few spots below Golden State in the Western Conference standings.

Draymond's "heroic" effort once again played a major role in that.
