Draymond Green joins 5x5 club in win over Boston
Boston gave Golden State everything they could handle on Friday night, taking the game to double overtime before the Warriors survived with a 124-119 win to improve to 24-0 on the season. With good reason, a lot of the postgame attention went to Stephen Curry and his 38 points (on 9-of-27 shooting, Boston did a good job on him).
But Draymond Green’s line was huge: 25 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, five steals and five blocks — a rare 5x5 game. The last person to have a 5x5 was Nicolas Batum in 2012. Green becomes only the third player in the last 40 years to have at least 20-10-5-5-5 in a game, joining Hakeem Olajuwon and Derrick Coleman.
