Post game party thread: Dubs handle heat!?
Jordan Poole goes for 30 points and 9 assists; Looney pulls 15 boards
Wow! You know, each season it seems like there are a couple of those games that remind me how valuable it is to watch every game. With some real bad vibes and recent losses, the expectations coming in against the Eastern Conference’s best record were lower than a mouse’s knuckles.
And yet somehow - somehow - the Golden State Warriors took it to the Miami Heat tonight. No Stephen Curry. No Draymond Green. No Klay Thompson. It’s hard to believe this is the same team that couldn’t handle the Orlando Magic last night.
Jordan Poole was sensational all night.
Andrew Wiggins had 20 points in the second half (after a first half best not discussed). But it was this wild spin move into a diving layup followed by a dagger-in-your-mostly-dead-corpse three that put the game away for sure.
This was a huge, huge win for a Golden State team that has been on their heels lately. Coming out on a SEGABABA, short-handed, and still managing to knock off the top team in the East would be a feather in anyone’s hat, but given the Warriors’ recent struggles, this one counts extra.
The Warriors will get one day off before continuing their road trip with a visit to the Atlanta Hawks on Friday.
