The 2021.11.05.NOP-GSW game answered the question: Could the Warriors play a solid game and take care of an over-matched injured team? Answer: Yes.
The game within the game was that there was a war of the Klay Plays. It feels like I talk about the Klay Play every video, but that's because the Warriors have been running it a lot. Last night, the Pelicans upped the stakes by running their own version of the Klay Play, and so the duel was on.
The Warriors showed versatility by running it in its vanilla form and the stagger screen form, with lots of different personnel playing different roles. First time had Stephen Curry, Jordan Poole, Nemanja Bjelica, Draymond Green, Andrew Wiggins; second time had Steph, Wiggs, Beli, Andre Iguodala, and Gary Payton II. Third time had Poole, Belly, Juan Toscano-Anderson, Damion Lee and Moses Moody.
Unfortunately, Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins need to work on their chemistry for advanced celebrations, but nobody’s perfect.
