Draymond Green's wife has taken aim at Boston Celtics fans over their 'shameful' and 'disgusting' treatment of her husband in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

Green was bombarded with boos and expletive-laden chants during the Golden State Warriors' loss to the Celtics on Wednesday.

Green fouled out of the 116-100 loss at a raucous TD Garden to a torrent of audible obscenities from large sections of the Celtics crowd.

At one stage late in the game, fans could be heard chanting "f*ck you Draymond" in unison.

Green's coach Steve Kerr and teammate Klay Thompson both took aim at Celtics supporters after the game, while Green's wife Hazel Renee took to social media to express her disgust.

"Tough loss tonight but in no way shape or form should fans be allowed to chant obscenities at players! Are they not human?" she wrote.

"My kids were at the game tonight hearing that mess? Very disgusting of you little Celtics fans. Just shameful."

Green was more relaxed about the issue when speaking to reporters on Thursday, saying he has no difficulty blocking out the abuse when he is on the court.

However he felt for his family who had to hear it.

"Obviously it can affect them, and I understand that," Green said.

"For me going on the court, those people chanting that out on the floor, quite frankly, my family aren't out there with me either.

"So at the end of the day it's me and my teammates out there on the court versus their guys. That's just what it has to be, channel and focus all my energy there.

"I didn't really give much to the crowd anyway, which I kind of think was a little bit more of an issue than if I did."

Klay Thompson and Steve Kerr slam Celtics fans

Speaking after Wednesday's game, Thompson said the crowd hadn't been an issue but still slammed the abuse.

"It was not a factor," he said.

"We've played in front of rude people before. Dropping f-bombs with children in the crowd. Real classy. Good job, Boston."

Warriors coach Kerr echoed Thompson when asked for his view on the Boston crowd.

"Classy," Kerr said. "Very classy."

Green has since vowed to bounce back from his dismal Game 3 outing, with the Warriors attempting to square the best-of-seven series at 2-2 on Friday.

"We are a much better team when I'm aggressive offensively, so I have to be that for this team," said Green, who scored just two points and made only four rebounds on Wednesday.

"I've always prided myself on giving the team what it needs in order to win."

Meanwhile, Warriors star Steph Curry has declared himself ready to play Game 4 despite suffering an ankle injury in Game 3.

Curry ended up at the bottom of a pile on Wednesday night as players from both teams went for a loose ball in the fourth quarter, a similar situation that saw him hurt the same ankle in a late-season game against Boston.

"I'm going to play. That's all I know right now," Curry said on Thursday.

"I know exactly what it is. I guess (there's) comfort knowing I've been through it before, but also you would rather not have to deal with something like that at this point in the season."
