Post game thread: Klay, Kuminga and rest of the Warriors too much for Kangz
What if I told you Klay Thompson looks more like 120% of his former self, not 85%?
Goodness gracious these Golden State Warriors are fun!
Just playing out the string on their way to the All Star break, the Warriors showed once again why everyone was so hyped about what this roster could look like with a healthy Klay Thompson back in the fold. He absolutely torched the Sacramento Kings — who have historically been one of his favorite targets.
But like everything that Golden State has done recently, this wasn’t a one dimensional game tonight. If last game was the fun emotional win, then tonight is one of those “oooh boy, the league better watch out!” games.
Kuminga yet again looked like that guy. The dude that no one on the other team can do anything about. 19 years old, and this kid is showing a nice arsenal of moves. Much of it is due to his speed and athleticism, but after watching him get stuffed one time on a predictable spin move, I’ve seen pump fakes, up and unders, and half speed drop steps — all to keep the defense off balance for the times that Kuminga can’t just run around everyone and dunk it on their heads.
The team is sitting Andre Iguodala and Draymond Green mostly out of need, but also because there are so many players up and down the depth chart that could use extra time to work together. Tonight was just one of those nights.
As always, this is just a short fresh thread for our community. The high quality DNHQ coverage will be back, better than ever in the morning.
