Draymond Green confident Warriors will win title after ugly loss to Rockets
Despite the awful loss against the Houston Rockets, Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors remained confident that they’ll still win the title.
As per Marc J. Spears of ESPN, Green believes that they’re still the best team in the league:
“We’re still the best team in the league… We’re still going to win a championship,” Warriors forward Draymond Green.

The Warriors lost to the Rockets, 107-86. It was a stellar effort by the Rockets — the favorites to outlast the Warriors come the postseason.
Last year, they were just one game away from beating Golden State in the West Finals. However, Paul’s injury coupled with bad luck prevented them from kicking out the defending champions.
In the game, the Warriors uncharacteristically couldn’t find the hoop and turned the ball over more than usual. They had a total of 16 turnovers and shot just 22.2 percent from downtown. The Rockets, meanwhile, just had five turnovers and made it rain from downtown with 16 makes on 34 percent shooting.
It could be dismissed as one of the few bad games that an elite team inevitably experiences throughout the long season. Apart from the recent Green-Kevin Durant controversy, the Dubs were also without Stephen Curry who’s expected to miss at least five games.
Green’s statements reveal that other factors might have influenced their tough loss Thursday night. But since they’re the defending back-to-back champs, he’s confident that sooner or later, they’ll get over the hump.
