Raptors’ Danny Green Discusses Game 2 Loss

Published

on

The Toronto Raptors were rolling in the first half of Game 2, but the Golden State Warriors were able to take Game 2, powered by an 18-0 run to open the 3rd quarter and a clutch 3-pointer by Andre Igoudala in the closing seconds of the 4th.

Raptors’ Danny Green talked about how the game fell out of the Raptors’ hands in the 2nd half.

“It just seemed like we were kind of sloppy and kind of forgot how to play basketball for a second, playing pickup,” said Green, who included himself in his criticism, according to Eric Koreen of The Athletic.

“We have to be more on point, a lot sharper and trusting each other, thinking that we can do it all at once by ourselves, playing hero ball. If we continue to trust the system, I think we’ll be OK.”

Raptors head coach Nick Nurse also noted the difference in play.

“I thought we hit an action and something would be there and they would cover it up with some help defense,” Nurse said.

“Well, when there’s help, there’s got to be somebody else probably open on the other side of the floor, and I thought we kind of shot a few too many into multiple defenders or two defenders around the basket, where those probably should have been maybe swung to the other side.”
