The Warriors took care of business against the Detroit Pistons in the 2021.11.19.GSW-DET game, barely hanging on to win while resting four key players. Jordan Poole had the opportunity and obligation to step up and cover the missing scoring power, which he did with a few threes and even more great drives which he carried off with speed, fakes and very creative and delicate finishes. The end result was an efficient 32 points on 22 shots and hopefully progress Poole can build on.
Co-starring Juan Toscano-Anderson as the mind-reading sidekick, Kevon Looney as the steady rock, Gary Payton II as the high flying decoy. Also with Cade Cunningham, Jerami Grant, Killian Hayes and Isaiah Stewart as the frustrated pursuers.
