Alex Caruso also picked up his fourth foul in the third, further limiting Vogel’s options on guard

All season, but especially in the playoffs, Green has been an extremely streaky shooter which has led some to become frustrated with his performance Despite this he always brought good energy and strong defense

Plus, Green is a big part of the rotation, so if he ran out of time the Lakers would probably have to rely even more on Caruso and Rajon Rondo while also giving Smith or possibly rookie Talen Horton a chance. -Tucker
