The Warriors had high praise for Draymond Green after he led Golden State to a 110-99 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals Saturday.

He finished the night with his seventh career postseason triple-double, scoring 20 points while grabbing 13 rebounds with 12 assists. He also made four steals and blocked a shot in what Warriors coach Steve Kerr called "one of the best games" he's ever seen Green play.

"I don't even know what to say about Draymond," Kerr told reporters (via ESPN). "He was like a wrecking ball out there. He was just destroying everything in his path. The pace that he was generating was incredible, and it just seemed like he never got tired.

NBA playoffs 2019: Stephen Curry, Draymond Green describe Warriors' mindset after Game 4 loss

NBA playoffs 2019: Stephen Curry, Draymond Green describe Warriors' mindset after Game 4 loss “We love it,” Curry told The Mercury News. “We obviously would love to be up, 3-1, or have the series be over. But there’s no panic.” The Warriors overcame a 3-2 deficit against the Rockets in last year's Western Conference finals. They went on to win the title for the third time in four years after topping Houston in the seven-game series. Warriors forward Draymond Green said this season's series against the Rockets is different. “There were so many questions that needed to be answered. Those questions aren’t there this year,” Green said. “We know the answer to our problems. That’s pretty exciting.

After the Golden State Warriors defended home court and took a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference finals, the Portland Trail Steph Curry led the Warriors with 36 points, while Draymond Green put together another postseason masterpiece with 20 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists and four steals.

Golden State forward Draymond Green was asked about Durant’s performance after the victory. Durant has tallied 33 or more points in five straight playoff games, including a 50-point outing in the Warriors ’ Game 6 victory over the Clippers. Stephen Curry also praised Durant on Sunday.

"He's playing with force. He's playing with discipline, he's playing under control. He's not letting anything bother him -- officiating, bad shots, turnovers -- he's just moving on to the next play. So from that standpoint, it's as good as he's ever been."

Stephen Curry gave credit to Green's ability to read the court and applauded his communication.

"It's like he's got eight eyeballs," Curry said. "He sees everything and kind of knows what to say at the right time. ... He's just observant of everything and has just a high basketball IQ. That's just, obviously, his experience, but the fact that he's so versatile that he can do a lot of different stuff and knows how to help a team win."

Klay Thompson added: "I mean, his stat line's ridiculous. Four steals, doing it on both ends, plus-16. But it's nothing new. I've seen him do it for seven years. ... He makes us go, especially when we push that pace. I'm proud of Dray, and he's not satisfied."

The Warriors, up 3-0 in the series, will face the Trail Blazers in Portland with tipoff set for 9 p.m. ET (ESPN).

Warriors became 'unbeatable' with Kevin Durant, need him back for finals, Draymond Green says.
"We need those guys," Green told ESPN. "The next series is going to be tough, and I hope and pray that we can get (Durant) back." Durant has not played since injuring his calf in Golden State's Game 5 win over the Rockets in the second round. The Warriors went on to close out Houston in six games before winning four straight against Portland. Andre Iguodala also missed Game 4 against the Trail Blazers with a leg injury. "Our goal is obviously to get all three of those guys back," Green said. "We know we're a good team with who we have, but those guys make us great and almost unbeatable. And we know we need (Durant).
