Green knew Bucks' play before clutch steal: 'Don't go at me for game'

Draymond Green walked the walk against the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night, then talked the talk in typical Draymond fashion.

With the Warriors up 122-120 and only eight seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Green came up with the game-saving steal on an inbounds pass from Tony Snell to Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Moments after Golden State's 124-121 victory - their sixth straight - Green rubbed salt in Milwaukee's wounds by seemingly calling out the team's lack of creativity in their playcalling.

"They have two plays that they run in situations like that," Green told reporters, adding that he knew which of the two Milwaukee was running based on where Antetokounmpo was positioned.

Green also mentioned that he took the Bucks' plan of posting him up with the game on the line as disrespect. "Don't go at me for game," the always brash All-Star exclaimed.

Green, who's finished runner-up to Kawhi Leonard for Defensive Player of the Year honors two years running, made it known earlier this week that he's gunning for the award this season.

High-profile, clutch defensive plays like Saturday's will no doubt help his cause.

The All-NBA forward finished with 10 points, five assists, three steals, two rebounds, and two blocks against the Bucks, as Golden State improved to 11-2.
