Jordan Poole had a double-double of 21 points and 12 assists as the Warriors defeated the Thunder (141-114) for their second straight win.
According to Draymond Green it was one of the best if not the best games by Poole he has ever seen. The four-time NBA champion especially liked his teammate’s playmaking in this game.
“I thought that’s the best game I’ve ever seen him play,” Green said about Poole after the game. “Played great, he ended with four turnovers, three of them was him understanding what was going on in the game and trying to get Klay shots at the end of the game. So, realistically he had one turnover and – what – 13 assists or something like that.
“I thought he played an incredible game on both sides of the ball. He was good defensively. Their whole offense is running guards and the guard-guard screens and waiting on a slip up and then driving that gap. And he was incredible on that side of the ball.
“And he was incredible obviously offensively. He let the game come to him, he got everybody involved and then he looked for a shot and everything was beautiful. I thought that was an incredible game. One of the best games if not the best game I’ve ever seen him play.”
This season Poole is averaging 20.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists in 30.5 minutes per game.
