Draymond Green stuck a fork in the Portland Trail Blazers with his first 3-pointer Monday in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals.
The Warriors beat the Blazers 119-117 in overtime to clinch their fifth straight trip to the NBA Finals. Green's long-range make gave Golden State just enough breathing room to eliminate Portland, growing the Warriors' lead to four points with 40 seconds remaining in the extra session.
In all, Green scored 18 points, hauled in 14 rebounds and dished 11 assists to seal his fourth triple-double of this postseason. He and Steph Curry became the first teammates in NBA playoff history to post triple-doubles in the same game, and Curry fittingly assisted Green's dagger.
Green powered the Warriors' Game 3 comeback on Saturday and continued his dominant postseason with the Warriors' biggest shot of the night. Golden State is the second team in NBA history to appear in five straight Finals, and the feat wouldn't have been possible without Green's overtime clincher.
