Draymond Green had a breakout year in his second NBA season.
Green was the only Warrior to appear in all 82 regular season games, where he averaged 6.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.24 steals and 0.88 blocks (all career highs) in 21.9 minutes.
All of Green’s hard work in the offseason continued to pay off, as he increased his field goal percentage from 32.7 to 40.7 and nearly quadrupled his three-point field goals made from 14 in 2012-13 to 55 in 2013-14.
Green made his first start of the season on February 6 against the Chicago Bulls. He tallied nine points and seven rebounds in the win.
Four days later, he recorded his first career regular-season double-double (11 points, 11 rebounds) against the Philadelphia Sixers.
February continued to be a great month for the forward – he logged his second career double-double on the 22nd against Brooklyn with 18 points and 10 boards.

Green’s tendency to make big plays were never more apparent than when he forced overtime with a game-tying 3-pointer with 3.9 seconds remaining on April 13 at Portland.
In the Warriors’ last home game of the regular season, Green set career marks in points (20) and three-pointers (4), while tying his career-best in rebounds (12) and steals (4).
Green continued to shine in the postseason. He increased his regular season averages by over five points and three rebounds, in addition to posting three double-doubles in the seven-game series against the Clippers.
In the Warriors’ Game 7 matchup with the Clippers on May 3, Green scored a career-high 24 points and made a career-best five 3-pointers (5-of-8).
