Dremond Green says the Golden State Warriors are unlikely to hit the panic button after the NBA Finals favorites collapsed after the series’ opening defeat to the Boston Celtics on Thursday.

The Warriors lost by a staggering 120-108 in front of their home fans while the Celtics outscored their opponents by 40-16 in the fourth quarter.

For the first time this post-season, Golden State was beaten at home, with the Warriors desperate to win two Sunday games in San Francisco.

Green says the Warriors will respond to the challenge after falling behind in the Best-Seven series.

“You get the chance to do something else, do it differently, take up the challenge,” Green said.

“We have always accepted the challenge. We’ll embrace this one. It’s not a hit at all for confidence, not even a bit.

“Even if you win every match at home, you still want to win one on the street. And in our history, we have always won one on the street, ”he added.

“It simply came to our notice then. This is the first team that has won four matches, the first team could not win one. “

Green’s comments were echoed by Clay Thompson.

“It’s never funny and it hurts on the biggest stage, obviously, but there’s no reason to panic,” Thompson said.

“I still like our prospects, and we’ll go home and digest what happened. I know we’ll be better Game 2.

“There’s no reason to hold the rate when you have another game so early.”

Warriors coach Steve Kerr has said that his team will go to the second match on Sunday feeling “disappointed”.

“When you win a game at home, there is a feeling of comfort and you feel a sense of accomplishment for your opponent at that time and make your adjustments,” Kerr said.

“So it’s a different feeling. Obviously you go to Game 2 with more frustration.

“But that’s all part of this thing. We’ve been in this position before, and we’ve won the series where we lost the first game.
