Post game party thread: Warriors win big! Everything is ok again?
It's the rebuilding Spurs, but a win is a win!
The Golden State Warriors rested Klay Thompson, which bumped Jordan Poole back up into the starting lineup on his first ever bobblehead night. Poole responded with his best game of the season - heck his best game in a good long while! Poole scored a season-high 36 points (on just 20 field goal attempts), making this the first Golden State win of the season where Stephen Curry was not the team’s leading scorer.
Poole’s offense will (rightfully) grab all the headlines, but his defense - particularly in man-to-man situation looked markedly crisper and more focused. This is good stuff!
Yeah, yeah, it’s the Spurs. And it is just one game, but it sure does feel nice to see the roster construction finally come together for a full game. Looney, Wiggins and Green were their usual excellent selves, Moody and Kuminga looked fantastic, and even Klay Thompson’s contributions from the announcer booth were on point.
It was a good night, all told!
The Warriors get one day off before taking on the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday.
