Draymond Green says Golden State Warriors won't make the mistake of underestimating Dallas Mavericks in Game 4 on Tuesday as they look to complete a series sweep.
The Warriors hold a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series and they are 20/21 to win in the Money Line on Tuesday, while Dallas can be backed at 20/23.
No team in the history of the NBA playoffs has ever won a series after falling 3-0 behind and most observers are expecting the Dubs to wrap up a 4-0 victory and book a place in the NBA Finals on Tuesday.
However, Dallas have fought back in both of the previous rounds, against Utah Jazz and from 2-0 down against top seeds Phoenix Suns, and Green is expecting a stern test in Game 4.
"It's going to be a very hard game. No one gets to the Conference Finals and quits. Never happens. Up 3-0, up 3-1 whatever, no one ever quits.
"So we're not expecting them to come out and quit, we're expecting them to come out and put their best before [us]," he said, via Fadeaway World.
"Ultimately, I think if we put out our best before, we give ourselves a chance to win the game but being one win away from the NBA Finals means absolutely nothing. Just means that you have to win one more game and that game isn't gonna be easy."
Golden State have a fresh injury concern ahead of Tuesday's Game 4 in Dallas as forward Otto Porter, who has featured from the bench in each of the first three games of the series, is rated as questionable with a foot injury.
The Warriors will definitely be without James Wiseman, Gary Payton and Andre Iguodala. Dallas have no new worries and long-term injury victim Tim Hardaway is their only absentee.
