Richard Jefferson believes there's a way for the Golden State Warriors to slow down Anthony Davis, and it requires playing some head games.
Appearing on ESPN's The Jump on Friday, the former Cleveland Cavaliers swingman said Green's "only chance" of containing Davis will be to get under his skin.
"I like Draymond, but that's his only chance," Jefferson said.
The conversation can be heard below, beginning at the 4:00 mark:
Jefferson may have a point.
While Green is arguably the league's most versatile and pesky defender, he'll be giving up three inches—if we take the NBA's height measurements at face value—to a player who scorched the Portland Trail Blazers to the tune of 33.0 points, 11.8 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game in a first-round sweep.
Plus, Davis registered 33.0 points and 14.0 boards in three games against the defending champions during the regular season.
And considering Green is at such a significant disadvantage in the height department, it won't be a surprise to see Kevin Durant and a slew of other Warriors defenders take a crack at the first round's most dominant force when things tip off Saturday night at Oracle Arena.
