Memphis Grizzlies win, as Draymond Green returns to boos during his comeback game

Draymond Green’s return wasn’t enough for the Warriors to get the win…

Draymond Green, making a highly anticipated comeback to the Golden State Warriors on Monday, faced a challenging return as the team fell short against the Memphis Grizzlies with a final score of 116-107. Despite Green’s commendable efforts, the Grizzlies secured the win, putting an end to their four-game home losing streak.

Having been absent from the court for over a month due to a suspension, Green took on a crucial role off the bench, contributing seven points, seven rebounds, and four assists during his 23-minute play. The suspension stemmed from an incident where Green struck Jusuf Nurki of the Phoenix Suns in the head during a game. This wasn’t the first time Green faced disciplinary action; in November, he received a five-game suspension for an altercation with Rudy Gobert of the Timberwolves.

The suspension period proved to be a tumultuous phase for Green, leading him to contemplate retirement. It was only after a conversation with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver that he decided to continue his career. Green’s official reinstatement in January marked the end of a challenging period, and he spent the past week gearing up for his much-anticipated return to the court.

Green returned to the sound of boos

In the showdown at FedExForum on Monday, Draymond Green, undeterred by the boos from the crowd, marked his return with a triumphant 3-pointer early in the game. This pivotal shot sparked an impressive 11-3 run for the Warriors, concluding the first quarter with a six-point lead. Throughout the first half, Stephen Curry’s stellar performance, contributing 16 points, helped the team maintain a narrow advantage. However, the Grizzlies, led by Vince Williams with 24 points and seven rebounds, along with a notable career-high 23 points from bench player GG Jackson, took charge in the fourth quarter.

A significant 21-10 run early in the final quarter propelled the Grizzlies to victory. Despite Curry’s remarkable 26 points and Kuminga’s double-double off the bench, the Warriors struggled with 19 turnovers. The game’s outcome underscored the challenges faced by the Warriors, who went 8-8 during Green’s absence.

Looking ahead, the Warriors are set for a demanding schedule, including matchups against the Utah Jazz and a five-game homestand commencing with the Dallas Mavericks. As the team navigates through the season, the role of Draymond Green in the starting lineup remains a point of anticipation.
