NBA - US Sports: Green relaxed as Golden State plot response

Draymond Green says Golden State Warriors don't feel the need to "press a panic button" after losing the opener of the NBA Finals series against Boston Celtics.

Golden State host the Celtics in Game 2 on Sunday before the two teams head to Boston. The Warriors are 10/11 to win with a -4 handicap in the Point Spread on Sunday and star man Stephen Curry is 6/4 to be the NBA Finals MVP.

The Dubs looked on course to strike first in the best-of-seven series as they led by 12 points going into the fourth quarter, but they scored just 16 points in the fourth on 7-for17 shooting as the Celtics completed an impressive comeback.

However, Green remains confident Golden State can fight back as they prepare to host the Celtics again on Sunday.

The 32-year-old forward doesn't think his team need to make major changes and he is convinced the Warriors will be able to level the series before Games 3 and 4 in Boston.

Green nowhere near the panic button

"I don't make too much of the loss. Obviously, you're down 0-1 at home," said Green, via NBC Sports. "I don't think it's time to press a panic button.

"At the end of the day, it is the first to four, not the first to one, two or three. They played a good game, you have to give them credit. I thought we played pretty good, or really good at times, I think we'll respond right away."

He added: "I expect us to come out Game 2 with even a better focus than we came out with in Game 1. There are some things that we can clean up, and I know that we will clean up."
