Draymond Green was the best player on the floor during Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals on Saturday night. The Warriors' star forward was the clear catalyst behind Golden State's comeback win over Portland.

The former Michigan State standout did everything that makes him an elite player in the come-from-behind victory over the Trail Blazers.

Green, who played 38 minutes, dropped in 20 points while grabbing 13 rebounds and dishing out 12 assists. He played spectacular defense, recording four steals and one block while impacting the game in plenty of other ways that don't show up on the stat sheet.

The Warriors' star forward had a brutally honest quote following his big Game 3.

Green admitted that he had been whining too much on the floor earlier in the season. He stopped that on Saturday night.

“I realized I had gotten to a point where I was doing more crying than playing. I’m sure it was disgusting to watch," he said.

Green has his fair share of haters, of course, but you'll be hard-pressed to find someone who has a problem with that quote. The honesty is refreshing.

Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals is set for Monday night.

Tipoff is set for 9 p.m. E.T. on ESPN.
