Draymond Green says the Knicks player is “nearly impossible” to guard

On Monday night, Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green was tasked with guarding Jalen Brunson of the New York Knicks.

Things didn’t go so well and Brunson scored 34 points against the Warriors en route to a strong road win.

On the latest episode of “The Draymond Green Show,” Green talked about how difficult it is to downplay Brunson.

“Protecting him in the pick and roll is difficult, almost impossible,” Green said, via DJ on Twitter.

Green said Brunson is playing at an “All-NBA level” and is capable of scoring for his team in multiple ways.

He is able to get down to the post and score, shoot from the perimeter and also take consequential and mid-range shots.

Green said Brunson is “crafty” with his body and is capable of outrunning just about anyone when he is in a pick-and-roll situation.

Even someone as experienced, talented and successful as Green is afraid of Brunson in that type of scenario and would much rather guard him one-on-one.

Green noted that he and the Warriors faced Brunson in the playoffs a few years ago when he was still with the Dallas Mavericks.

Although Green was impressed with the player then, he claims that Brunson became a much better player than he was when he moved to the Knicks.
