Warriors

Draymond Green came to play in the NBA playoffs.

The Warriors forward opened the first quarter of the first-round series opener against the Clippers on Saturday night with 13 points on 5-on-5 shooting (2 of 2 from beyond the arc). He filled out the stat sheet with three assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block. 

Green's output in the first 12 minutes was a big reason the Warriors took a nine-point lead into the second quarter at Oracle Arena. It also was a better scoring performance than he had in 55 of his games in the regular season.

There's also this. When Green scored 13 or more points in the regular season, the Warriors went 10-1. If Golden State has its way, that'll be 11-1 by the end of Game 1 on Saturday.
