After the Golden State Warriors held the Atlanta Hawks to 42 percent shooting in a 105-100 win Monday night, Draymond Green used his postgame period to inform the critics that they pissed him off.

“The world says we traded our defense away when we got KD (Kevin Durant),” Green said after blocking a game-high four shots. “I disagree. So, I think our defense actually has the upside to be better with the length and everything that we have, the speed, the athleticism. That pissed me off more than anything, that it’s kind of like, ‘Yeah, their defense is going to suck now.’ I take that personally. So that pushes me more than anything else.”

For those who obsess over LeBron James’ minutes, Monday was a good night.

James played a season-low 27 minutes in the Cavs’ 116-88 win over the Detroit Pistons, exiting the game with 1:40 left in the third quarter having scored 18 points with eight assists.

James is 32, and even with the easy night against the Pistons still leads the NBA with 37.9 minutes per game. Giannis Antetokounmpo, 22, is second with 37.8 minutes for Milwaukee.

James said after Monday’s win: “You make so much a big thing about my minutes. It’s not a huge issue. But at the end of the day, when we can get a win like this, everybody benefits from it. Not just me. Everybody.”
