The return near his hometown prompted Draymond Green to smile. The reasons did not just involve all the expected ones, including seeing friends and family members and visiting familiar spots. The Warriors’ forward also found it “refreshing” that the Warriors (20-6) will play the Detroit Pistons (14-10) in downtown Detroit for the first time after previously playing at Auburn Hills. “Obviously growing up in the state of Michigan, Detroit is the big city. But you’ve heard so many negative things all these years,” Green said. “I was listening to guys like, ‘Man, we got to go to Detroit.’ Now they finally get to see Detroit. With the growth and everything that is happening downtown, I’ve been so excited for guys to come and see Detroit.”
