Draymond Green challenged Kevin Durant after Game 3 with a text message in the middle of the night

Draymond Green's 4 a.m. text elicits 'I got you' reply from Kevin Durant

After the loss in Game 3, Draymond Green could not sleep. And in the middle of the night, at 4 a.m., he has sent a text message to Kevin Durant inviting him to show on the court who he really is.
Kevin Durant accepted the challenge and ended Game 4 with 38 points.

Per ESPN, "I can't sleep when we lose like that," Green said.

Throughout the night, he got so agitated by his team's performance that he sent Durant a "long-ass text message."

The All-Star power forward wouldn't divulge his message in its totality, but he said he had to let his teammate know how he felt at that moment."I just challenged him to be who he is. I had to tell him," Green told ESPN. "I didn't see him attacking or being aggressive enough on both ends of the floor like we need him to be. You know, I don't hold back. When I see something's wrong, I have to voice my opinion. There were no hard feelings. We're just trying to win a ballgame."
When Durant woke up hours later, his reply to the text message was "I got you."

Durant said he was a little surprised to have a text waiting for him, but he wasn't surprised by Green's viewpoint. 

"In short, [Draymond] said don't worry about s--- else but playing with force and being aggressive," Durant told ESPN. "And I tried to do that as much as possible today. I wasn't aggressive in Game 3, and I knew that. It's good to know that teammates got your back. It was good to hear that from him."
