Game Thread: Prepping for Klay's return? Poole to come off bench against Jazz
Otto Porter and Gary Payton will be filling out the starting lineup, but Poole's back
The Golden State Warriors are getting Jordan Poole back, but in a small surprise move, he’ll be coming off the bench tonight against the strong offense of the Utah Jazz.
Warriors starters tonight: Curry, GPII, Wiggins, Porter and Looney. Kerr said bringing Poole off the bench was based off the matchup.
Coach Steve Kerr cites the matchup, and he’s not wrong. With two strong scoring guards in the Jazz first unit, it does make sense to slot Gary Payton II in. Also, without Green, the second units will need a lot more from everyone in order to keep the machine chugging along when Curry sits down.
Asked if the Warriors had a New Year's Eve party in Salt Lake City last night, Steve Kerr deadpanned: "We had just an absolute rager at the Grand America Hotel. A lot of stuff happened I probably shouldn't even talk about." #Nightlife
Anyway Kendra Andrews was right. Next summer all the other 29 NBA teams will throw big$$$$$$ on the plate for 8P, Belly, YG, JTA, JP3..... damn, it will be hard.
I'm watching again the 4th quarter. I'm uncertain I saw basketball or sci-fi.
