Draymond Green might not like shooting the basketball — even open layups — but he he loves to do everything else on the floor for Golden State, including passing the rock.
He’s been on a roll finding his teammates for buckets lately, accomplishing a feat not seen since one of the best point guards in Warriors history, Tim Hardaway, wore the blue and gold. Green had 15 assists in back-to-back games in two barn-burners against the Mavericks to close last week’s action.
Here’s the info, per NBA History’s Twitter account.
The most obviously crazy aspect of this is that Green played center for the Warriors for their two-game set in Dallas, not point guard like Hardaway. Per ESPN’s Nick Friedell and Warriors PR, Green is the first center in NBA history to have 15 assists on consecutive nights.
It’s all part of Green’s legend. They guy might be a liability when it comes to shooting field goals, but he’ll set his teammates up with the best of ’em.
But Hardaway, part of the storied and short lived “Run TMC” Warriors teams of he early ’90s, had 15 assists for three games in a row, not two. Green will have his chance to match that feat and make more history against the Spurs on Monday night.
