Not only are the third-quarter Warriors back with their 115-91 win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday at Chase Center, but Golden State also unveiled a new strategy to defend Russell Westbrook: Leave him as open as possible.

Speaking with reporters after the game, Warriors coach Steve Kerr explained why he had Draymond Green sag so far off the former NBA MVP.

"Draymond, as a centerfielder is, I think, the best in the league," Kerr said. "I mean, there's nobody who can kind of muck up the lane like he can and just ready what's happening, help everywhere he needs to help, and then come in and rebound."

Kerr also made it a point to praise Donte DiVincenzo and Klay Thompson for their concerted efforts to rebound the ball and impact the game that way. 

"Between Draymond and [Kevon Looney] directing the defense, our guards getting back on the glass, defending without fouling, for the most part, and just staying solid, I think we're finding something," Kerr added.
