What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Draymond Green @Money23Green
I just watched Bucks/Celtics highlights on SC. They showed something about Mike Buldenholzer and then some of the Celtics players talking about the game. But, did not show Ime Udoka at all. Did he make any adjustments from game 5 to 6? Does Ime do Interviews? Just wondering??? – 7:51 AM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
The season is over, but the future is bright. Even the enemy, Draymond, says so: “They got it. It will be good to see their progression over the next few years and see where they can take it. Because that’s an incredible young team. They can be special.”…2:05 AM

Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba
Draymond Green’s reason for wanting to start Kevon Looney:
“I just thought we were getting physically dominated, and I know the worry was on the offensive end and just how they guarded, but we were getting dominated from the start.” – 1:36 AM

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Draymond Green on the Grizzlies: “They got it… That’s a group of young guys that are hungry… They can be special. They can be really special.” – 1:33 AM

Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Draymond Green said he wanted to come and talk about “The Griddy” and that Memphis chant. But …
“The only thing I can do is give my respect to that team.” – 1:33 AM

Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Mike Brown said it was Draymond Green and Stephen Curry’s final decision to start Kevon Looney.
“They looked us all in the eye and said that’s where we are going to get our confidence.” – 1:08 AM

Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
The Warriors had 70 rebounds tonight to close out the Grizzlies. That’s an NBA high for rebounds by any team in any game this season. Kevon Looney had 21, Draymond Green had 15, Andrew Wiggins had 11. They had 45 defensive rebounds and 25 offensive rebounds. Wild. – 12:58 AM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Warriors close it out, 110-96, with 0 turnovers the 4th quarter after 17 thru three. Winning Time hoops.
Klay with 30, Steph 29, Draymond 14-16-8, Looney 22 rebounds, Wiggins with a brilliant second half.
Western Conference Finals: G1 Wednesday vs DAL/PHX winner – 12:42 AM
Drew Shiller @DrewShiller
The year is 2022. Steph Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and the Warriors are back in the Western Conference Finals. Dubs fans — don’t ever, ever, ever take this for granted – 12:39 AM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
First Warrior with 20+ rebounds in a game Feb. 2015 (Draymond Green)
First with 20+ rebounds in a playoff game since 2013 (Andrew Bogut) – 12:33 AM
Sam Amick @sam_amick
We still doing jokes about the Mike Brown hire in Sacramento? His defensive adjustment – Looney and Draymond starting and closing – has been the difference here. – 12:33 AM

Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
That’s the Draymond the Warriors need. Missed layup, everyone kinda hangs their head, sprints the ball up the floor and finds Steph for a 3. Made that fastbreak out of nothing. – 12:23 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Klay Thompson and Draymond Green through 3 quarters: 37 points, 14/26 FGs (53.8%)
Rest of Warriors: 41 points, 15/50 FGs (30%) – 12:10 AM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Though we all know Steph is going to drop a big 3-ball at some point in the fourth quarter, it’s been up to Klay and Draymond to keep the Warriors afloat. They likely decide the team’s Game 6 fate. – 12:01 AM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
At the half: Warriors 53, Grizzlies 51
-Ragged: 10 assists, 12 turnovers, 12 MEM points
-41pct from 3, 28pct from 2, 67pct from the line
-Klay 17, Steph 14
-39-25 rebounding advantage offsetting the giveaways
-Looney: 12 rebounds, Draymond 8rebs/8pts – 11:28 PM

Jon Krawczynski @JonKrawczynski
Grizz aren’t paying Draymond any mind even when he’s in the paint. No thought to him shooting whatsoever, allowing them to load up on Steph, Poole, etc. – 11:10 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
After 1: Warriors 30, Grizzlies 26
-Energy ultra high, led by Draymond
-7/13 from 3
-Klay ablaze: 11 pts 4/5 FG, 3/3 3p
-Looney starts, grabs 11 rebounds in 9 minutes
-Rebounds advantage 21-11 – 10:48 PM
Geoff Calkins @geoff_calkins
If the Warriors happen to clinch, will they be petty and unoriginal enough to play “Whoop that trick?” After watching Draymond, I think there’s a real chance. – 10:33 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
This bigger starting lineup with Draymond and Looney did its job. In for defensive purposes. Held the Grizzlies to eight points in six minutes. Up 16-8. Jordan Poole enters. – 10:33 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
First okay of the game is drawn up for Jaren Jackson Jr., as expected. He went through two or three screens and Draymond Green was right behind him. I bet the Warriors don’t want Dray leaving JJJ much – 10:23 PM
CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22
Steven Adams gets an offensive rebound on the Grizzlies’ first possession of the game, then gets fouled by Draymond Green. – 10:22 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
I think Kevon Looney starting is a big deal.
Positive for Grizz: Looney and Draymond playing together creates more spacing problems and makes GSW easier to guard.
Negative for Grizz: Draymond Green will likely be matched up vs. Jaren Jackson Jr. Tougher matchup for top option. – 9:53 PM

Damichael Cole @DamichaelC
Kevon Looney is starting at center today. Warriors going with the bigger lineup. So I bet we see Draymond Green guarding Jaren Jackson Jr. more. This will be interesting. Golden State going defense>offense – 9:33 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
The Warriors are leaning into the Grizzlies’ preferred style tonight and starting Kevon Looney next to Draymond Green. It’s a defensive/rebounding frontcourt that GSW has mostly avoided this series because of spacing concerns. – 9:32 PM

Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears
“In the most respectful way, I had to look at him more like my son instead of my brother. The reality is he is just as close to my son in age as me in age,” #Warriors forward Draymond Green on how he mentors to 19-year-old teammate Jonathan Kuminga. #nba7:40 PM
