With his team trailing the Oklahoma City Thunder 3-1 in the Western Conference Finals, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has confident that his team will stave off elimination and force a Game 6 in Oklahoma.

Green, who writes daily diaries for The Undefeated, said that he has “no doubt” that the Warriors will come out victorious in Game 5.
I have to be better. I know this team energy goes as I go. They didn’t have nothing to look for. I haven’t given my guys anything. No leadership, no energy, nothing, which is what I bring to this team. It’s no shocker to me that we’re down 3-1 because I haven’t been there for two games. I wish I had the answer [as to why]. I don’t have the answer. But I know I will change it. It’s not too late. That’s why it’s a seven-game series. They have to beat us to four [wins]. We go home. Take care of home court. Get something to feel good about. And then we battle. But we have to come out Thursday like our lives depend on it. I have no doubt in my mind that this team will respond.
Green, who has struggled over the past two games, received a text message from Kobe Bryant earlier in the series, and will look to step his play up in Thursday night’s pivotal game.
