Draymond Green didn’t take questions from reporters because he said his emotions are all over the place after his former Michigan State teammate Adreian Payne was shot and killed Monday. He said he will talk on his pod, so he can pause it and cry if he needs to. – 1:46 AM

Jaren Jackson Jr. looked at the stat sheet and shook his head. He said he was upset with himself missing all seven of his 3-point attempts. He also said on the Draymond contested 3 late, he just missed it and he I’ll take that shot again if given the opportunity. – 1:27 AM
Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Mike Brown on keeping the game close:
“Anytime you have Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Jordan pool on the floor and then a guy if he wasn’t hurt, he would have been Defensive Player of the Year in Draymond Green on the floor, you know good things can happen.” – 1:10 AM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
Coach Jenkins said he is interested in seeing the last two minute report to see if there was contact on the Jaren Jackson Jr. three that was contested by Draymond Green. Said the shot was maybe rushed but thought there was contact. – 1:06 AM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Mike Brown on the death of Draymond Green’s close friend and college teammate, Adreian Payne: “Draymond getting hit with something that impactful. Not only was it tough for him, but we felt it as a group.” – 12:56 AM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Taylor Jenkins says he is curious to see what the Last Two Minute Report will say on the Draymond Green contest on Jaren Jackson Jr. late 3. Jenkins felt that the 3 might’ve been a little rushed but that there was contact. – 12:54 AM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Draymond Green with the tip block of a Jaren Jackson 3 for the night’s most important stop. Six Steph Curry free throws in the final minute sealed it. Thought Andrew Wiggins’ defense in the fourth was huge. An ugly win, but a win. Warriors head to Memphis up 3-1. – 12:35 AM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Steph Curry and Draymond Green talking their sh– to each other, capturing the relief the Warriors did just enough to get a win after moving in mud for most of the game. – 12:34 AM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Huge swing challenge there goes against the Warriors. Draymond Green fifth foul stands. If overtuned, would’ve been Jaren Jackson’s fifth. Two Grizzlies free throws. – 12:18 AM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
5 on Draymond. All 5 in this half. The first was a Eurofoul. Brown challenging, I don’t THINK this will get overturned unless they get Jackson for an elbow. – 12:16 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Draymond switches Porter onto Adams to deal with Jackson’s drive. So Memphis goes at Porter, gets him switched onto Tyus and he blows by him for an easy floater. Porter has hit big shots but can’t defend in space. – 12:03 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Memphis with a nice adjustment on the “drive the front” from Wiggins when Draymond is in the post, Tyus stepped out in front of him off the front and took that away. – 11:00 PM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Steven Adams is returning to the Grizzlies starting lineup tonight. The Warriors are starting Jonathan Kuminga again in Game 4.
Steph Curry
Klay Thompson
Andrew Wiggins
Jonathan Kuminga
Draymond Green – 9:32 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Jaren Jackson Jr. on Adreian Payne: “Never want to see something like that happen. Prayers to his family. Definitely shook us all up. Super tough. I’ve already talked to a lot of alumni. Tough man. Saw Dray this morning. It’s tough on all of us… Life man, it’s precious.” – 5:13 PM

Chris Vivlamore @CVivlamoreAJC
Statement from Hawks on Adreian Payne: “We are deeply saddened to hear of the tragic passing of Adreian Payne. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.” – 2:22 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
The death of Adreian Payne is at least the second in Draymond Green’s Michigan State circle lost to gun violence. He also knew former MSU football player Mylan Hicks, who six years ago was shot and killed in Canada. – 2:17 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Steve Kerr began today’s presser by offering condolences to Adreian Payne. “Draymond is just crushed,” Kerr said. “Devastating news today.” – 2:02 PM
Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Steve Kerr opens with condolences on the death of Adreian Payne. “Draymond is crushed. They were the best of friends. We’re thinking of them today. Feeling a lot of grief.” – 1:59 PM

Larry Lage @LarryLage
Adreian Payne, a former Michigan State basketball standout and NBA player, died in a shooting. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to a shooting at 1:34 a.m. when the 31-year-old Payne was identified and taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. – 1:34 PM

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Crushing news about Adreian Payne. He developed into a helluva player at MSU by his senior year. But I’ll always remember AP’s relationship with Princess Lacey Holsworth, an 8-year-old who died of cancer. Their bond was incredible as seen in this video: youtu.be/NWVASucWyFw12:40 PM

More on this storyline

“I am going to go home and sit on my podcast and talk because I can pause that and cry if I need to cry. I don’t like to cry in front of people, Green said. “What I will say is, Hazel and I are going to donate $100,000 to a fund in Adreian’s name. I call on my Spartan family, coach Izzo, Magic (Johnson), Jaren Jackson, Miles Bridges, all of my Spartan family, let’s do something in honor of Adrien. Whether that’s naming something on the campus after him, if that is some scholarships for some kids to play, whatever that is, I call on my Spartan family to ban together and do something in Adrien’s name.” -via USA Today Sports / May 10, 2022
