Green: Warriors can be better

Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green believes that his side are capable of becoming better. 

The Warriors, who are the reigning NBA champions, have already etched their names in history this season as they won their first 24 games to break the record for the best start to an NBA season. 

The Warriors’ unbelievable streak came to an end against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday, but Green sees a lot more success in store for his side if they stop relying on point guard Stephen Curry to carry them. Curry is currently averaging 32.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 2.2 steals per game and has also scored 40 or more points seven times this season. 

“I know how much better we can be on both ends of the ball, and that’s kind of scary,” Green told reporters on Tuesday. “It’s definitely encouraging. It’s exciting. And it will be fun to actually reach what we think we can reach.

“The way he [Curry] had to work so much harder for the shots that we could get him. And it wasn’t like he was out there chasing. It’s what we did. Without our execution, we’ve got the best player in the world. We’re just going to give him the ball and say, hey, ‘Get us a bucket,’ when we can help him get buckets in a lot easier way.”

The Warriors will look to bounce back from their loss to the Bucks when they host the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday.
