Post-game: Warriors new guys pull off explosive comeback to sweep The Japan Games. Patrick Baldwin Jr and Trevion Williams especially entertain
I don’t know if I’m going to do an Explain video on the Japan Games… honestly my video software had a big upgrade and now I have to re-learn how to use it. But you can read my notes to see what I would have analyzed…
Apricot’s In-Game Notes
TREVION ARMY REPORT
Trevion nice touch on pass to backcut
Stops layup at rim
His patented over the shoulder pass to the cutter
hustles to get rebound to PBJ three
seems to be communicating well on defense, you can see him pointing out screeners and talking
almost blocks another shot
Trevion with a 3 brick — which I’d like to not see
TW then climbs up a back to grab a hustle DREB
catches a BULLET of a Moody behind the back pass, gets fouled
then to stay on brand, misses both FTS
then grabs a tough DREB
on the other end, TW waves for people to split cut on a stagnant play… then digs out an OREB and spins in a putback. He has touch from 10 feet and in.
TW with his patented sidearm laser cross court pass to Moody who, compelled by the coolness of that pass, forces a layup to try to get TW the assist.
Well, after the draft I watched a bunch of video of PBJ and RR and I was excited about PBJ — loved the maturity and playmaking mind and small detail work — and didn’t see what GSW saw in Rollins — he looked physically outmatched by a Dayton team… I am no great draft evaluator, but what I’ve seen has just reinforced my prejudices. And as I type this, PBJ with a feathery touch pass on the break to Dunkin’ Mac..
Kerr must be serious about winning, he put PBJ back in as the stretch 5.
PBJ holds up well isoed on the perimeter.
Then bludgeons someone with an illegal butt screen.
And… I don’t know how TF he got off that 3. He is not afraid to shoot and I love it
That was a really fun game for me personally to watch. Got to see all the ups and downs of the Trevion Show, PBJ looked like a second year player, Wiseman uh looked like a second year player, Moody looked composed and decisive at the rim. Kuminga was channeling Kobe — the one who didn’t take a shot for a whole playoff game half. Ah well, time for a break
