Stephen Curry torched another NBA opponent Wednesday night, dropping 37 points (7 3-pointers) and nine assists in the Golden State Warriors' 131-131 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans.

He’s now averaging 33 points per game on the young season, however, as good as he was against the Pelicans, this night belonged to Draymond Green.

All Green did in the first of five consecutive games at home was nearly drop a triple double with 16 points, 14 rebounds and eight of the Warriors’ season-high 39 assists.

According to Warriors head coach Steve Kerr, Green no doubt wast the best player on the floor.

It doesn’t take much to get Green revved up, but the fact that he was named to the NBA All-Defensive team has the seven-year vet on a mission.

We all know the 2016-2017 Defensive Player of the Year doesn’t take kindly to being slighted.

Curry has noticed how well the heart soul of the defending champs is playing.

Anthony Davis is one helluva player, arguably one of the best in the NBA, but Green, who has 50 assists in his last 50 games, did his best to disrupt the “Unibrow's” rhythm.

Davis entered the fourth quarter with only nine points. I’d say that’s pretty good, even though Pelicans’ head coach Alvin Gentry went 0-to-100 when I asked him about Green bothering Davis.

Whether it’s switching, barking signals, taking knees to the junk (hello Julius Randle), Green is having a stellar start to the season and likes the way the Warriors are beginning the year.

Oh, and don’t ever think for one second that Green will flip that emotional switch off. Just ask Kevin Durant. Good night, everyone.
