Celtics’ Jayson Tatum jokingly won’t let Draymond Green take practice ball

Draymond Green won’t be able to get his hands on Jayson Tatum’s basketball this time.

At 4:40 in the fourth quarter of the Warriors’ 104-94 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the NBA Finals Monday night at the Chase Center, Tatum was seen walking towards the Celtics bench with the basketball after Draymond snapped him at it from taking a practice shot after a foul was called.

Green then followed Tatum over to the bench, where he sat with the basketball still in his hands while a crowd of players followed.

Two days later, Tatum sat down for his press conference on Wednesday afternoon, basketball in hand. A reporter jokingly asked him if he kept the ball away from Draymond.

“Oh, how the other day?” said Tatum. “Yes, this is my ball.”

Believe it or not, Draymond appeared out of nowhere, jumped out of the crowd of reporters and snatched the ball from Tatum again. Joking.

If the Warriors manage to defeat the Celtics Thursday night and win their fourth championship in eight seasons, Tatum and the Celtics can literally take their ball and go home.
