Post Game party thread: Poole erupts for 43, Warriors blow out Raptors
Harness the good!
The Golden State Warriors finally picked up another road win, blasting the Toronto Raptors, 126-110. Jordan Poole was the player of the game. Just too quick for the Raptors defenders, Poole was relentless on the attack. But it was some early tone setting by Draymond Green that started the avalanche.
Golden State gets a day off, then has back-to-backs this week on Tuesday and Wednesday against the New York Knicks and then Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets.
Basketball can be a funny sport. After looking weirdly off for most of the season, suddenly Poole was unstoppable in this game.
The win is doubly sweet. Golden State sorely needed to add some wins on the road, no matter how they got them - and Poole was overdue for a big game. This is why he got paid so much. The expectation has been for guys like Poole, and Green, and Looney to step up; and that’s exactly what happened.
