Draymond Green doesn't regret saying Cleveland fans aren't sharp

Green replied. "I don't know".

It appears as though the Warriors are also winning the battle off the court, as Golden State big man Draymond Green made some interesting comments regarding the fans in Cleveland - which have not sat well. The Cavaliers won 137-116.

Green, Kerr and the Warriors are hoping that they won't have to play in Cleveland again this season, as they try to wrap up the series at home in Game 5 on Monday.

For months, National Basketball Association fans have been hearing about how Green's a changed man; that the testicle-punching days were behind him and he was a player who could keep his cool.

The wildly combative and fiery game had 51 personal fouls, seven technical fouls, one flagrant foul and a number of dust-ups.

"I don't pay much attention to people in Cleveland, honestly", Green told reporters. "I carried the lessons that I learned with me". I feel better than I've ever felt emotionally.

"I'm just me", he said.

Green still finished the night with impressive numbers of 16 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, and two steals, but they weren't enough for his team to keep its unblemished record and bring the title back to Oakland. "But still trying to figure out why did I get the second one". People tend to want you to change, but being me has gotten me here. We're healthy, we got Kevin Durant. "Our intensity wasn't the same as it was in the first three games, so we'll get back to that tomorrow". They'll be ready to pounce on any opportunity they get to humiliate Green in Game 6.

Such moments bring questions about Green's mental improvement, ones Green shrugged off earlier in the series.

"The first tech was on Steve, which I didn't understand".

"Not worrying about the officials and all that".

"When I say something, I've thought about what I'm going to say before I say it", Green said. They be at home thinking about me. When I say something, I've already thought about what I was going to say.

Then he dropped the line about the fans not being the "sharpest people around". "So I went over the edge before - fool me once, you can't fool me twice".

"Absolutely not", Green said sounding insulted anyone would think that would be the case. We know what we have to do in order to win this game. We were right there. We continued to push. A couple of shots drop, maybe the game turns.
