I got a lot of requests to look at Jonathan Kuminga playing the most important minutes of his career in the 2021.12.25.GSW-PHX game, playing in high leverage minutes on Christmas.
A lot of his time was spent guarding Chris Paul, who was contained for the most part by Kuminga, despite using his trickery to get the best of the rookie and other young Warriors. Kuminga showed defensive effort and awareness that promises a continuing role this year.
Co-starring Stephen Curry, Juan Toscano-Anderson, Quinndary Weatherspoon, Otto Porter Jr., Nemanja Bjelica, Gary Payton II, and Draymond Green. With Jae Crowder, JaVale McGee, DeAndre Ayton, Cam Johnson, Cam Payne, Mikal Bridges, and Devin Booker.

I bet jalen green ain't playing no defense like this! I wonder how Cade defense has been, remember kuminga was once the number one prospect of this draft
Suns have been clutch (lucky?) in random ending games. But every and now then, random ending won't go in their favor - kind of like against Grizz. Thanks Santa for two gifts this week.
*lucky = just being facetious
