Draymond Green Commends Unsung Hero Who Rescued Him against Milwaukee Bucks

On an unusual day for Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors, rookie Trayce Jackson-Davis stepped up, leading the team to a significant victory against the Milwaukee Bucks. Green’s performance included 12 points, six rebounds, six assists, and two blocks in 25 minutes of play, but he struggled with missed opportunities and turnovers, prompting his removal from the game in the second half.

Coach Steve Kerr then turned to Jackson-Davis, whose impactful contribution helped secure a 125-90 win. Jackson-Davis delivered 15 points on an impressive 87 percent shooting accuracy, along with six rebounds and four blocked shots.

On the Milwaukee side, Giannis Antetokounmpo contributed 23 points, seven rebounds, and six assists, while Damian Lillard added 20 points and six assists for the Bucks.

Following the game, Draymond Green addressed reporters, shedding light on why he was substituted. Additionally, he expressed high praise for the rookie’s role in the Warriors’ victory.

It’s rare for Green to commend teammates beyond Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson, with whom he has a close connection on the Warriors’ roster. However, Jackson-Davis has proven to be more than his average stats of 6.8 points and 4.1 rebounds suggest.

Currently, the Warriors hold the 10th spot in the Western Conference, closely trailed by the Los Angeles Lakers. To secure a playoff berth, Golden State will rely on top-notch performances from both Green and Jackson-Davis in the upcoming weeks.
