The Warriors defeated the Bucks 102-93 on Wednesday night, and Draymond Green was the best player on the floor.
The "heartbeat" registered 23 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals and three blocks in a team-high 40 minutes.
During the fourth quarter, the Warriors went small with Green playing center, and the small-ball lineup wreaked havoc on Milwaukee.
"We play very well when we go small," Green said. "Obviously, we play well when we're big, too. So it’s not like, 'Oh, it's the small lineup, the reason we won the game. We've won 47 games. Just about every lineup works.
"But, obviously, these last few games, this small lineup has really been working. A lot of teams have been trying to go small against us, and I think that works in our favor. I'll put our small lineup against anybody's in the league."
Following the win, Kerr was asked whether or not he can recall any team that got better defensively when they employed a smaller lineup.
"When I played in Chicago, that was an excellent defensive team and we put (Dennis) Rodman at the five sometimes, I'd usually be off the floor (laughs). And we'd have (Ron) Harper, (Michael) Jordan, )Scottie) Pippen, Rodman and maybe Toni Kukoc or another wing guy, and that team was phenomenal defensively..."
The Bulls won back-to-back-to-back titles in 1996-1998.
The '97 squad was fourth in the league in defensive rating (99.2), and the '98 Bulls was third in defensive rating (96.7).
The '15 Warriors currently lead the league, allowing 97.9 points per 100 possessions.
A lot of that has to do with Green.
"I think Draymond has a lot of Dennis Rodman in him," Kerr declared Wednesday night. "He defies positions, he guards anybody. He's quick enough to stay in front of point guards, he's big and strong and tough at the rim and rebounds like crazy.
"To survive in this league, you have to have the versatility with your wings and also your bigs, and we have a lot of those guys. Our roster is really good for that kind of stuff, and Draymond obviously sets the tone."
Green is currently sixth in the NBA in defensive real-plus minus and when he's on the floor, opponents score just 95.5 points per 100 possessions.
He's 20th in rebounds per game (8.3), 17th in steals (1.61) and 19th in blocks (1.44).
For a guy who stands at 6'7", that's remarkable.
Rodman, who is also 6'7", was the NBA Defensive Player of the Year in 1990 and 1991, and was First-Team All-Defense seven times.
"The Worm" led the league in rebounding for seven straight seasons ('92 to '98) averaging a staggering 16.7 rebounds per game.
"That's crazy," Green said when told about Kerr's comparison. "I don't know if I can live up to that standard. I just try to come and bring whatever it is that the team needs."
