Danny Green says Spurs would've defeated the Warriors
The San Antonio Spurs were eliminated in the first round by the Los Angeles Clippers in an epic seven-game series.
The defending champions were expected by many to go further, and had they survived a potential showdown against the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals would've taken place.
Spurs guard Danny Green, someone who knows something about coming through in big games, believes his team would've defeated Golden State if they only got past Los Angeles. Here's what he had to say on ESPN's First Take:
It's difficult to talk about winning a title after losing in the first round, but that's what Green does here. Would the Spurs have taken down the Warriors? Maybe. But it's a pointless question that has no answer. All Green can do is re-sign with the Spurs and hope his team gets back to the top next year.
