    Draymond Green had another fantastic all-around game, getting 12 rebounds, 10 assists, six points and three more blocked shots after swatting five in Sunday's win. He finished with 15 points, five rebounds, four blocks and a steal, shooting a flawless 7-for-7 from the field and making his only free throw. Another player or two is going to have to step up and help McCollum and Lillard shoulder the load offensively if they're going to have any chance in this game.
