Draymond Green did everything for the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals. Can he keep playing at an elite level in the NBA Finals?

<div><p>Green has benefitted from the absence of Kevin Durant because he's free to play the style of basketball that helped him become one of the best two-way players in the <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/" target="_blank">NBA</a>. He averaged 16.5 points, 11.8 rebounds, 8.8 assists, 2.8 blocks and 2.3 steals per game in the Western Conference Finals and his energy at both ends of the court made a big difference.</p><p>It was a tough regular season for Green, he missed the All-Star game for the first time since 2014-15, his scoring average dropped to his worst since the 2013-14 season, he had the third-worst Player Efficiency Rating (PER) of his career (12.88) and the second-worst 3-point percentage of his career (28.5) but he's been a man on a mission in the playoffs.</p><p>He helped close out the Trail Blazers with a great all-around performance in Game 4, getting another triple-double (18 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists), his fourth in the playoffs thus far. He also had one in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.</p><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Draymond Green recorded back-to-back triple-doubles in the past two games of the Western Conference Finals.

Green is playing his best basketball in years but I'm taking him to score Under 13.5 points at -110.</p><p><strong><u>Draymond Green Player Props for Game 1<br />(Courtesy of 5Dimes)</u></strong></p><p>Draymond Green points over 13.5 -110<br />Draymond Green points under 13.5 -110</p><p>Draymond Green rebounds over 9.5 -150<br />Draymond Green rebounds under 9.5 +120</p><p>Draymond Green assists over 7.5 -115<br />Draymond Green assists under 7.5 -115<br /><br />Draymond Green points+assists over 20.5 -105<br />Draymond Green points+assists under 20.5 -125</p><p>Draymond Green points+rebounds over 23.5 -105<br />Draymond Green points+rebounds under 23.5 -125</p><p>Draymond Green rebounds+assists ov 18 -110<br />Draymond Green rebounds+assists un 18 -110</p><p>Draymond Green pts+reb+ast over 30.5 -125<br />Draymond Green pts+reb+ast under 30.5 -105</p><p>Draymond Green 3-Pt FG's made over 1.5 +210<br />Draymond Green 3-Pt FG's made under 1.5 -270</p><p><strong><u>Series Price for the NBA Finals<br />(Courtesy of <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4423&amp;book=BetOnline" target="_blank">BetOnline</a>)</u></strong></p><p>Warriors -280</p><p>Raptors +235</p></div>
