Golden State forward Drymond Green has admitted that his poor performance in Game Three has dragged his team down and he needs to be better off to avoid falling into the Warriors’ 3-1 final on Friday.

Green, the team’s emotional leader, fought hard on Wednesday in the hostile environment of TD Garden, scoring just two points with four rebounds and three assists in 35 minutes before being fouled out.

“We didn’t get to play with the right energy that we needed, and it started with me,” Green told reporters in Boston that the Warriors must have a win.

“I need to be more aggressive on both sides of the ball, not just defense or offense. I think the game is tied together, it all goes hand in hand, ”he said.

“When you flow in one direction, you can flow in the other. I have always been proud to have given the team what it takes to win. I think if I increase my strength, we will increase our strength. “

The Warriors got the good news Thursday because guard Stephen Curry, who injured his left leg in a shake for a loose ball in the fourth quarter of Game Three, told reporters he was going to play Friday.

Curry, who averaged 31 points in 49% three-point shooting in the final, said he hoped Green would help “dubs” level the series as the squad wanted to bring them back to their fourth championship bay in eight years. Area.

“I know Drymond will help lead that charge tomorrow, just as he did in Game Two,” Curry said.

“We’ll be back in the series.”

Clay Thompson, who came out of his shooting slump to score 25 points on Wednesday, echoed Curry.

“One thing I know for sure is that we react like champions,” Thompson said.

“I know Drymond will come out and play his usual brand of ball which is very physical, fast moving, talking trash and just becoming Money Green whom Dub Nation loves so much and has taken us to a height we have never seen before. “

The fourth game will be held in Boston on Friday.
