Jazz coach laughs off Draymond’s ‘restaurant’ jab

OAKLAND — When last the Golden State Warriors and Utah Jazz met, TV cameras caught Draymond Green laughing on the court in the closing seconds of the Dubs’ 106-99 win.

“We were laughing at [Jazz head coach] Quin [Snyder] who kept calling timeouts,” Draymond told reporters after the game.”Like bro, you’re down 10 with six seconds left, it’s kinda over my man.”

“Just let us go to the restaurant and have a good dinner — just chill,” Draymond said. “That’s what we were laughing at. Nothing about the tech [on Durant] … that was funny. But that’s all it was.”

When reminded of Green’s comments before the re-match at Oracle, Snyder ducked the opportunity to provide the All-Star forward — famous for turning the most-innocuous of comments into bulletin-board material — with such an opening.

“That was something of a unique game because we were without a lot of our vet guys and we’re playing Dante Exum and Trey Lyles in particular — two second-year guys at the end of the game,” Snyder said.

“I wanted them to have an opportunity in that situation to execute and that’s why I did that. I understand that. But I would be surprised if they’re thinking about it or we’re thinking about it. They make you think about too many other things,” he said with a laugh.
