Golden State Warriors forward Otto Porter Jr. had his best game of the 2022 playoffs last night, as he went for 13 points/4 rebounds/3 assists/2 blocks on 71.4% shooting against the Memphis Grizzlies in a 142-112 Game 3 victory.

Going into the contest, Porter Jr. was only shooting 30.0% from the field so far this postseason, but teammate Klay Thompson knew he would continue to stick with it and eventually find his stroke.

(Via House of Highlights):

“Yeah, Otto, you can’t leave him open. He’s an incredible shooter and has been his whole career. I knew he was going to have a big night soon because he’s been getting great looks and been sticking with it. What was most impressive to me was his ability to rebound. He got some really great second chance opportunities for us. He’s a great teammate and he’s a true pro. A true testament to our strength in numbers mantra because he might not have had the shots go down the first couple games, but he’s a real pro and just stuck with it.”
