Kevin Durant led the way for the Golden State Warriors for a 26-point Game 4 victory over the Pelicans with a game-high 38 points, and it was all thanks to  Draymond Green, who sent KD an inspiring text message challenge sent at 4 in the morning.

After the Warriors were blown out by the Pelicans in Game 3, Green told ESPN he stayed up watching film. "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."

"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."

"In short, [Green] 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."  

  "What we saw from him today, that's what we need. He was engaged and scoring all over the place. He was changing the game. That's the impact he has when he's playing aggressive out there for us. That's what I love seeing."  

The Warriors won 118-92 win to take a 3-1 lead in the second-round series. How much longer do we have to wait for the Warriors Cavs finals?
