The Warriors didn't have Stephen Curry to rely on against the Hawks on Tuesday. As it turns out, Draymond Green has acquired Steph's penchant for hitting wild dagger threes via osmosis. So he took up the charge with less than a minute left in overtime to all but finish off Atlanta.
The shot was initially called a two, but it was reviewed and corrected to count as a three. (Steph doesn't seem to have that problem since the majority of his shots are yards away from the arc.) After the shot, the Hawks hit a couple of free throws, Klay Thompson hit a shot and that was the ballgame. The Warriors' home winning streak continued, they remain on pace to win more than 73 games and they won despite Atlanta achieving Rules No. 1, 3 and 10 of our rules for beating Golden State.
One game after flipping out on his team, Green finished with 15 points, 13 rebounds, 9 assists and four steals.
Better luck next year, Hawks.
