Danny Green Stepping Up for the Spurs

Published on June 13, 2013 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

So far the MVP of this year’s NBA Finals has been Danny Green, Yes Danny Green. In Game 3 Green was part of NBA history. As a team the Spurs hit 16 threes, 7 of which came from Green. Green was 1 off the NBA Finals record of 8 three pointers in a game. Not bad for a player that was cut 3 times during his career.

Green is 12 of 14 his last two games behind the three point line. So far in the finals Green has made 15 three pointers that is more than any Spurs player in a final. Robert Horry had 15 in 2005.

Through 3 games Green is outscoring LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Green has 56 points, while James has 50 and Wade has 43.

Green is not only playing great offense but solid defense also. He is helping control James. Last game he came up with a huge block on James that lead to a Gary Neal three pointer right before half.

“All of my teammates and Pop, they do a great job of encouraging me. They continue to tell me to shoot the ball. They continue to tell me whenever I’m open, to let it fly,” Green said.
