Draymond addresses mom’s tweet, vows to fix struggles in Game 5 originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Draymond Green still has a lot to figure out on the court during these NBA Finals — and yes, he saw his mom’s tweet that said just as much.

After the Warriors pulled off a 107-97 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 4 at TD Garden on Friday night, Mary Babers-Green took to Twitter to speculate about her son’s production.

In a separate post responding to a Golden State fan, Babers-Green was baffled and said she has never seen her son unable to bounce back from a poor performance.

After two straight two-point showings in Games 3 and 4, Green admitted on his podcast “The Draymond Green Show” that he agrees with his mom.

“For those out there, yes, Draymond still has to play better and I will,” Green said from his hotel room after the game. “Just keep chugging away, make plays when you need to make plays. Down the stretch made a couple of good plays, but just keep plugging away at it.

“It’s been a tough series. I saw my mom tweeted that it’s been a tough series for me. Absolutely, it definitely has.”

Despite hardly making an impact shooting from the field during Game 4, Green was still able to contribute on offense with eight assists and helped the Warriors out rebound the Celtics with nine boards of his own.

In Game 5, Green plans to come into Chase Center on Monday with an answer to his mom’s questions.

“Figure it out how you’ve got to figure it out,” he said on his podcast. “It’s not the toughest thing I’ve had to deal with in my life thus far, but I’m sure I’ll have a tougher challenge in life than this.

“But currently, I’ve got to figure this one out. And I will. I have no doubt in my mind that I will. I always do.”
