Draymond Green looks old, leaving the Warriors in a bind

BOSTON — Draymond Green turned these NBA Finals with his intensity and physicality in Game 2.

And then he turned them again a few days later in Game 3. This time, for all the wrong reasons.

Green was not the sole reason the Warriors lost Game 3, but his performance — the worst of his illustrious playoff career — was glaring.

What else did you expect from a player whose career has been made by ostentation? His great is big and his bad is, too.

And on Wednesday night, that same attitude was anything but effective — it was destructive.

Another game like that in Game 4 Friday and the Warriors’ chances of winning a fourth title will be destroyed, too.

Because this series, with all of its fascinating performances and tactical wrinkles, can really be boiled down to one big — and on Wednesday — ugly truth:

The Warriors will live or die by the play of Green.
