Draymond Green doesn't lack confidence, especially on the court.

A Utah Jazz reporter felt that the Golden State Warriors failed to win with class Monday night, and he shared some unflattering stories about it after the game.

Draymond Green was not happy.

Ben Dowsett, who covers the Jazz for a few different sites, said some Warriors players were dismissive when asked about Utah giving them a close game. Dowsett said there were a lot of “shrugs and chuckles” from Golden State players when asked about the fight the Jazz showed in their 106-103 loss.

Dowsett later admitted that he misheard Curry’s quote and that he wasn’t laughing at the Jazz, but Dowsett stood by the overall point. On Tuesday morning, Green unloaded on the reporter.

The Warriors are 19-0 and appear poised to set the record for the most wins by an NBA team in a single season. They’re also the defending champs, and we know how Curry feels about this year’s team versus last year’s. Confidence is one of the many reasons the Warriors are dominating the NBA. Don’t expect them to change.
