It’s never a wise decision to try Draymond Green at the rim. You can ask everyone, from LeBron James to Damian Lillard, Blake Griffin to Dennis Schroder.
Now, you can ask Mavericks’ rookie Dennis Smith Jr.
Green was whistled for a foul on this play, but nullified Smith’s attempt at posterizing him during Golden State’s Monday night matchup against Dallas. He even had a few words for the rookie after the play.
It could have been worse. It could have been Patrick Beverley guarding Smith.
