Danny Green certainly isn’t cocky, which is surprising, given his lights-out shooting thus far in the NBA Finals.
Still, the Spurs guard, who shrugged after Game 3 that his team’s success in reining in LeBron James has as much to do with James “stopping himself” as with anything the Spurs have done, stayed on the humble train on Thursday. Green was asked about his (and his teammates’) defensive work on Dwyane Wade, who has yet to demonstrate any consistency in the series. Green’s response was typical San Antonio vanilla-speak.
Danny Green on Wade: "You guys see it... you can tell something's not right."—

That’s as controversial as a Spur is going to get: Hinting that his opponent might be secretly injured. As far as trash talk goes, that’s pretty weak.
“Hey, man, we’re totally shutting you down because you’re not at 100 percent! Burn!”
Game 4 tips off Thursday night. Wade is expected to play — the question is, how well.
