Shooting has never been a huge part of Draymond Green’s offensive arsenal, but the three-time All-Star for the Golden State Warriors makes up for it with other facets of his game–including his uncanny passing ability.
On Sunday night against the Portland Trail Blazers, Green showcased both sides of his game on a rather fortunate blunder. Green shot the ball from deep but was inches short from hitting the rim. Good thing Stephen Curry was in the perfect place at the perfect time, as the ball dropped into his hands and even converted an and-1 bucket under the basket for the Warriors.
Here’s the accidental give-and-go play from Green and Curry (via House of Highlights):

Talk about court vision.
Even if Draymond pleads his case, he’s never getting that assist. Instead, the 30-year-old Warriors forward tallied his second miss of the evening as he continues to shoot blanks.
Green’s slow comeback continues as he suits up for just his second game of the season. He suited up for the first time against the Blazers last Saturday and was 0-of-3 from the field to go with four assists and four rebounds. On Sunday, it was pretty much the same for Dray, as he has yet to score his first bucket this 2020-21. To make up for his goose egg, Green has tallied seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block for the Warriors so far.
Oh, and this accidental assist.
