Game 14. GSW 121, SAS 99. Wiseman gets practice, learns to smash lobs
The rare comfortable win
In Game Notes
Wiseman has been way more aggressive on the boards. Important if that lasts.
Wiseman finally loading in the JaVale module. Honestly, part of the troubles has been that a lot of the past lobs have stunk. I imagine he hasn’t really had much practice time to focus on it.
Spurs might have set a record for airballs. If they shoot normally, they could possibly bomb their way back into it
Poeltl flummoxed EP in H1. Nice to see EP adjust with the fakes
DL probably deserved FF2, but I think he was trying to smack the ball and the shooter double clutch faked him
I like the idea of running Paschall in split cuts if he’s guarded by Poeltl. Try to use his mobility edge, since he can’t seem to blow by Poeltl in iso
Looks like they are screening for EP to force Rudy to guard him?? Unorthodox, but EP does seem more comfortable with tha matchup
That’s the second time I think this year that Steph has flipped a sublime unwise behind-the-back off-the-dribble pass to Looney that has bounced off his retina
Warriors in Force Feed Wiseman mode. It’s the Law of the Warriors Jungle: when a non-star gets hot, force feed them until them miss twice
I don’t think it’s ever a good idea for Wiseman to path out of bounds behind the basket on defense.
Spurs brought their C game, Warriors brought their B+ game. B+ because Steph just had a All-Star level game, not a Unanimous level game
The first comfortable win of the season?
(counter-suggestion: SAC game) Maybe... but that one wasn’t as start-to-finish as I recall
(counter-suggestion POR game 2) I’m never comfortable vs POR. I always feel like POR could be great if they decided to defend harder. I mean they haven’t in 6 years, I’m just saying
Quick Post Game Notes
Wiseman and the team looked WAY more comfortable connecting for alley-oops.
GSW ran some nice controlled offense against box-and-ones.
Oubre looks to have his swagger back.
