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 offensive schemes. In short, there were a couple of times when he wasn’t sure what the play was, but he managed to contribute anyway.
I liked that there were no threes hoisted up. And we saw him make a decent read in the four-on-three short roll when Steph Curry got blitzed. We saw him featured in that Kuminga loop play where you start from the left low block and loop him around two screens.
Co-starring Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala, Draymond Green, Jordan Poole and Gary Payton II. Also with Alec Burks, Derrick Rose, Mitchell Robinson, and Julius Randle.
