Draymond Green was a consistent presence for the Golden State Warriors on Sunday in their Game 1 win over the Portland Trail Blazers, making significant contributions with his defense, offense and rebounding.

Green was a thorn in the Blazers' offensive plans. The Blazers shot 25 percent (4-of-16) when Green was the primary defender in Game 1. The 16 field goal attempts Green faced were the most on the Warriors.

Green was the primary defender on 20 Trail Blazers plays. The Blazers scored 11 points on those plays and committed turnovers on three of them.

In addition to his on-ball defense, Green got three of his five blocks as a help defender.

On offense, the Warriors shot 9-of-12 (75 percent) off Green’s passes in Game 1 for 20 points. Green led the team in assists with nine, and his passes led to a team-high five uncontested shots.

Green scored 19 points himself on 6-of-10 shooting, including 3-of-4 on 3-pointers. On uncontested 3-pointers, Green was 3-of-3.

During the regular season, Green shot 40 percent on uncontested 3-pointers, lowest of the seven Warriors players who took 30 or more uncontested 3-point shots.

Green had a team-high 12 rebounds in Game 1. The Warriors shot 9-of-11 (82 percent) for 21 points on possessions directly after one of his rebounds. Green scored six points and had three assists after a rebound.
