The Golden State Warriors got the better of the Cleveland Cavaliers once again in the much-hyped Finals rematch on Christmas Day which lived up to its billing.

In a thrilling encounter at Oracle Arena, the Dubs secured a 99-92 win as they managed to close the game out with some huge defensive plays down the stretch.

The game swung back and forth and remained close for most of the night but the Cavs shot poorly all night and even though they stayed in the contest, their struggles caught up with them in the end as they failed to make baskets in the critical stage.

As always, Draymond Green proved to be the key to the Warriors' win as he posted a triple-double of 12 points, 11 assists, and 12 rebounds.

The Defensive Player of the Year was once again dominant on that end of the floor as he enjoyed a number of steals and blocks, particularly this outstanding rejection of Tristan Thompson.

This was just his second game back in the lineup after a shoulder injury had kept him out for a number of games but he showed no effects of it during this huge clash.

Green was a winner on the night in more ways than one as he also managed to brilliantly troll LeBron James with an interesting choice of sneakers.

The All-Star donned a pair of white Nike shoes that featured a picture of the famous cartoon character Arthur.

This was a clear aim to troll James after he posted a meme of Arthur earlier in the season that caused a huge stir and went viral on social media.

When the Cavs were struggling, the King took to Instagram and put up a picture of the character's balled-up fist which was taken as a sign of frustration.

It coincidentally came after former teammate Kyrie Irving had dropped 35 points for the Boston Celtics who were rolling at the time while the Cavaliers looked bad.

In typical Draymond fashion, he couldn't help but find a way to continue his friendly trolling of LeBron after the pair went at it on Instagram after the Warriors defeated Cleveland to win their second championship in three years in June.

The power forward began by trolling LBJ during their title-winning parade and it continued on social media in a hilarious exchange of words between the two stars.

It's a little petty but it's what the fans love and there's certainly nothing wrong with a friendly back and forth to spice up the rivalry between the two teams and Green is always willing to do so.
