Warriors Draymond Green to Cavs Tristan Thompson’s Challenge: “I Can Meet in the Streets Any Day”

One of the big game two storylines from Oakland on Sunday night will be if there’s any backlash from the end of game one when Tristan Thompson shoved a ball in the face of Warriors chatterbox Draymond Green.

Thompson avoided being suspended after that and throwing what didn’t look like much of an elbow at Shaun Livingston towards the end of game one, but was still smacked with a fine of $25,000.

Today at media availability, Green spoke back to Thompson, who put out a challenge it appeared leaving the court that he was ready to go 12 rounds with Green, inviting him to meet him outside as he walked toward the tunnel.

Green, as he always does, didn’t wait long to answer back, saying he would be willing to meet Thompson “in the streets any day.”

All eyes will be on Tristan and Green when they are on the court together Sunday, and it will be interesting how much room the officials give for the two to be physical should they hook up at some point in the game two affair.
