Draymond Green said that the Golden State Warriors' defense was setting the tone following their 105-96 win over the Phoenix Suns.
The Warriors have now won 4 straight games.
"One thing about defense is you're always going to give up something, so then it becomes what is it that you're willing to give up? And I think the things that we've been willing to give up, we've been giving those up, and it's been working out for us," said Green.
The Warriors have the best defensive rating in the league since December 19th with 97.6 points allowed per 100 possessions.
Green added that he's focused on the team's improvement despite having just 9 wins on the season.
"We still got nine wins. Ain't no pressure. We still go out there and swing for the fences. This team is just really getting better, and it's exciting."
