Draymond Green was terrific in the Warriors' Game 4 win over the Clippers on Sunday.

He registered 10 points, nine rebounds, five rebounds, two blocks and was a plus-nine in over 36 minutes.

But per usual, the basic box score doesn't tell the whole story when it comes to Draymond's impact. To fully understand his importance, you have to watch the game. And then you have to rewatch the game.

The 2017 Defensive Player of the Year is only 6-foot-7 (and that's generous), but when he is fully focused and engaged, he's one of the best rim protectors in the NBA.

Just watch how many points he saved the Warriors in Game 4:

Harrell averaged 22 points through the first three games of the series and was causing the Warriors a lot of problems. On Sunday, he scored just 10 points and was a minus-17 in the plus/minus.

You can thank Draymond for that.

But let's get back to the three-time All-Star protecting the rim:

For some reason, Draymond didn't get credit for a blocked shot here:

And speaking of "washed up," the three-time NBA champion told Marcus Thompson of The Athletic after Game 3:

"If somebody think I'm washed and done at 29, they're stupid. So good for them for being an idiot. But it's OK. It's the time of year where I like to show what it's really about."

[REWIND: Why you shouldn't panic about Draymond, bet big on him instead]

Here are a couple more clips from Game 4:

Draymond contested 19 shots, according to's "hustle" stats. The next closest Warrior was Klay Thompson with 10.

Draymond was everywhere and it was a blast to watch.
