A talented forward, Jordan Poole has gained momentum this season in the Warriors offensive system. For only his third year in the NBA, the former Michigan will-o’-the-wisp is already the third best scorer for the “Dubs” (18.4 points, 45.4% on shots), behind the duo Stephen Curry – Klay Thompson.
But tonight, on the occasion of the easy victory of the Warriors against the B team of the Lakers, Jordan Poole shone in another register. While Steph Curry was out of gear, the fullback took on the role of primary creator in attack, and took the opportunity to sign his career-high passing 11 offerings.
” It’s great to put my teammates in a position to score, especially when the game was tight. I have the utmost confidence in them, I know they can plant these shots he said after the meeting.
” Jordan was fantastic tonight. Overall his season has been fantastic “delivered a Steve Kerr to the angels in a press conference. ” He plugged the holes during Steph and Klay’s absences, when they were injured. He came off the bench, ticked all the boxes, did whatever he was asked to do. It’s great to coach her, because he listens and remembers everything. In the last month he has really improved, he has become much more efficient with the ball in his hands. He does not dribble more than necessary, his decision-making is more fluid. »
The Warriors coach also draws an interesting parallel with Tyler Herro, evoking the similarity of their roles, namely creators, both for them and for their teammates, off the bench of a team at the top of the table. ” I don’t know if people realize what a great passer Tyler is. They are both natural scorers, but can also make those one-handed, side-to-side passes. […] His journey is similar to Tyler’s, in that Tyler made the playoffs in the bubble with a starring role in his first season, he raised his level of play. I see a similar trajectory with Jordan at home. »
Like a Jordan Poole in passing record mode, the Warriors delivered an impeccable score in attack: 52.6% shooting success (51/97), and 39 assists!
” We forced them [les Lakers] to make decisions. We managed to put them in an awkward position, knocking out most of their defensive cover added Jordan Poole. ” We have so many strings to our bow, when we move the ball and our attack finds its rhythm, it makes us very dangerous. »
