Brief In-Game Notes
Oh man, Our Guy Juanito went up large to throw down, then adjusted beautifully on the bump. CLE had picked on Juanito with a switch/post up from Jarrett Allen a couple plays back. Allen walked all over him in a way that Dray would not have allowed.
Juanito swallows up Kevin Love ... good to see that post D.
I have limited hopes for Poole. I want him to be a steady PG, make some plays off the dribble and be average from 3. If he can be a volume scorer, I’m okay with that.
OUR GUY JUANITO. So great to see the guy most committed to running the offense and getting other people shots... getting an unusual number of shot
I think part of it is that JTA almost never takes a 3 unless he’s completely wide open and can wind up a slightly odd form. That last 3 from the corner he took contested and it looked bad
YEEEEEEEEEEAH another open 3 from JTA
Have I used up my quota of doing videos on Our Guy Juanito? I kind of went nuts in February
There is lots of time to blow this, and Wiggs, Steph and Dray did their best to throw for a minute
Our Guy Juanito truly embodies Kerr’s “Stay Ready” mantra. Which is only necessary because Kerr utterly takes him for granted, but hey
Oooooooooh I was ready to go wild for that Nico-GP2 connection
From what I understand, the Warriors could sign Mo Wagner but he wouldn't be allowed to play in the playoffs?
Still, might not be a bad idea to get him on a couple 10 days, another big body in case Looney or Draymond can't go.
OT but god I hate seeing Westbrook get visibly frustrated at his teammates when they mess up his "dimes". I'm sure his teammates gets frustrated at him when he goes 7-35 while they lose. Can't imagine having a guy like that on this team.
