Draymond Green expresses frustration with Warriors travel on game day vs. Knicks

The Warriors were set to fly to New York on Monday night but ran into some travel issues.

The Athletic’s Marcus Thompson and Anthony Slater broke the news that the Warriors were stuck in Indiana overnight due to mechanical issues with their plane. That might not be a big problem under normal circumstances, but the Warriors are scheduled to play the Knicks on Tuesday (7:30 p.m. ET on TNT) while on the second night of a back-to-back.

According to Thompson, the NBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement is “against players traveling on day of games.”

Slater tweeted that the Golden State’s plane didn’t leave Indiana until 10:35 a.m. ET on Tuesday, setting them up to arrive in New York City around noon.

Safe to say, Draymond Green wasn’t very happy with the situation.

The Warriors forward addressed the team’s delay in a series of tweets, expressing frustration and concern.

The Warriors’ meeting with the Knicks is the third stop on the team’s five-game road trip.

Stephen Curry is set to make history, as he’s only two 3-pointers away from passing Ray Allen in first place on the all-time leaderboard.

The Warriors enter Tuesday’s game with a 22-5 record on the season, giving them the best record in the NBA.
