Stephen Curry got the media attention for his breaking the all-time threes record in the 2021.12.14.GSW-NYK game, but quietly Jonathan Kuminga was making his most significant contributions so far in his rookie year.
In this video, we’ll look at how Kuminga is fitting into the defensive schemes. Here we see Kuminga play tough man-to-man defense, zone defense, drop defense against the pick and roll, and double team blitzing. For the most part he made good decisions, though he rotated oddly in a couple of plays. In general, it was promising.
Co-starring Andre Iguodala, Draymond Green, Jordan Poole, Andrew Wiggins and Gary Payton II. Also with Derrick Rose, Mitchell Robinson, Julius Randle, Evan Fournier.
