Post game thread: Warriors impress in loss, but maybe that's just my low standards
No Curry, Wiggins, Thompson, or Green, but Golden State kept it interes
The Golden State Warriors dropped another game, bringing their road trip to a merciful end, if not a totally successful one. Deciding to sit Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, and Andrew Wiggins, the Warriors punted this game before it even began. And yet, I find myself slightly encouraged.
The youth movement has struggled this season, and the dichotomy between the successful starting unit and everyone else on the roster dragging the score down has been getting harder and harder to ignore. But with the starters removed, the rest of the Warriors seemed to find their footing. Not enough to win the game or anything, but they did at least keep it close.
Ty Jerome was a particular standout, running the offense well, and making a number of big plays. Watching this game, it was suddenly a lot more clear as to how he supplanted Quindarry Weatherspoon so smoothly during training camp.
Seriously, this kid showed out tonight.
Jordan Poole wasn’t great tonight, if he had anything close to what passed for a normal game for him last season, this would have been a win tonight. All said, the Warriors saw some good combinations tonight and will be able to hold their heads up high on the way to the team plane.
Still, some wins (and soon) would be nice.
Warriors have the weekend off, and then face the Sacramento Kings and their new coach, Mike Brown, on Monday. Stay chill, everyone!
