Poole shines as Warriors smoke Nuggets
Golden State smashes game 1 with a dominant all-around showing
QThe Golden State Warriors got a big night from Jordan Poole (30 points on 13 shots) and Draymond Green/Kevon Looney shut down Nikola Jokic as the chase for another title tore out of the starting gate.
Stephen Curry was still hampered by the lower leg injury that has sidelined him recently, but his disruptive presence was still a benefit.
This was one of those games where everyone played well, and it showed as the Warriors stretched out to a 20 point lead on the 4th quarter.
There was plenty to like out there tonight and you can bet Denver coach MikeMalone is going to have a good long look at the tape with his assistants.
Golden State seemed to be better at every position, and with Curry coming in with the bench units (at his request, so he can close quarters) it was tough for Demver to maintain contact.
We will of course have a ton more coverage, for now?
Warriors lead series 1-0!!
