Jordan Poole, Steph Curry won in Warriors vs. Grizzlies

All right, all right. In almost every exciting game as you can imagine, the Golden State Warriors won for the first time in the semifinals against the Memphis Grizzlies, winning the streets 117-116.

It was fun. It was fascinating. It was fun. And most important, it was a victory.

So let’s test the players, based on what we expect from everyone.

Note: League-average true-shooting percentage (TS) this season was 56.6%.

Draymond Green

17 minutes, 6 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, 1 block, 5 turns, 1 bad, 2-for-3 shots, 2-for-3 free throws, 69.4% TS, +2

Green had a very good game – with the exception of tons of flexibility – before being released in the second half due to the foul of Flagrant 2. The Warriors were ambassadors for post-game calls, which is understandable. I would be, if the NBA would pay me $ 50,000 for complaining.

But if you want to know how the group felt? Here:

I won’t regret a Warriors fan who knocks out Dray’s class on the game. Maybe you think it was appropriate for Flagrant 2. Maybe you think he just needed to be more careful, knowing his background.

I don’t judge him for that. I will judge him for five turnovers, but maybe he was sensational. But the turnaround was very painful, as the Warriors were careless at first.

Group: B

Andrew Wiggins

34 minutes, 17 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 return, 3 errors, 6 shot for 14, 1 for 5 throws, 4 free throw for 7, 49.8% TS, 0 plus / minus

Not a good day at Wiggins’ frustrated office, but he has to repay a lot of debt to the Warriors to repay the big Grizzlies team. Wiggins is becoming more and more obsessed with getting rid of clutter, having recently started running, running, and playing strong defense.

I would still love to see him cut a lot of ball, sit on the few jumper competitors, and make a lot of free throws. But considering the team’s construction, security and recovery are more important than shooting.

Group: B

Send game bonus: He is tied up for the team to lead in the rebound.

Steph Curry

37 minutes, 24 points, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 block, 1 turn, 5 bad, 8-to-20 shots, 5-to-12 throws, 3-to-4 free throws, 55.2% TS, -9

This was not a very clean Curry game, and that should be good news. Because the Warriors stole the victory regardless. But Steph was far older. He had the buckets of his time, and he really strengthened his defense – plus blocking Ja Morant’s stability with 20 seconds remaining and the Dubs clinging to a one-point lead.

It wasn’t his best game, but it was a reminder of how ready he is at the moment, and how much he loves the atmosphere. Even with his meh shot numbers, you trust him with everything he has.

Group: B

Send game bonus: Worst of all inclusion / removal in public.

Klay Thompson

31 minutes, 15 points, 1 rebound, 3 assists, 2 steals, 1 block, 3 bad, 6-to-19 shots, 3-to-10 throws, 0-to-2 free throws, 37.7% TS, 0 plus / removal

All in all, it was not the best game for Klay. But his game came to an end.

With 36 seconds left, and the Warriors with two points left, Klay fired heavily on the game, hitting three – it was 2-for-9 in the past – to lead them well.

In the Warriors’ next episode, Thompson was insulted with 6.7 seconds left … and missed a free throw.

And in the final game of the game, Klay provided a clever defense when Morant missed a successful shot.

Three big games. One bad, two big.

But the big news is that the Warriors won even though they didn’t shoot well. Will he win, on the way, without Dray, when Steph and Klay shoot 14-for-39 from the field? Very good sign.

Category: C +

Gary Payton II

23 minutes, 8 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, 3 turns, 4 bad, 4-to-5 shots, 80.0% TS, +1

The GPII joined the starting lineup and guarded Morant, who called him “fun” after the game. And he drew a huge role in the game that sealed the Warriors ’victory.

As usual, he gave up frustrating moments when hitting the ball, and he was even bigger than his size.

And he flew to keep the ball alive after Klay missed it again and, if the opponents had seen it play, it would have been Warriors football gone.

Group: A

Jonathan Kuminga

15 minutes, 6 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 return, 2 bad, 2-for-3 shot, 2-for-2 free throw, 77.3% TS, -2

Kuminga is expected to play a few minutes on each game in the series, and his running game gave the Dubs a fantastic look. There’s a hat of his own size, and he’s at risk of defending himself, but the best moments away from him.

Category: A-

Otto Porter Jr.

23 minutes, 2 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, 2 bad, 1-for-4 shots, 0-for-1 triple, 25.0% TS, +2

Porter continues to fight his shot and wins on everything else. His defense was excellent in the game, and his repetition was very important.

Category: A-

Send game bonus: He is tied up for the team to lead in the rebound.

Juan Toscano-Anderson

4 seconds, 0 points, 0 plus / min

JTA only played four seconds, but it was the last four seconds of the game, as they were given the task of sitting down to defend the final defense. That’s very good.

Education: Incomplete

Kevon Looney

19 minutes, 8 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 refund, 2 bad, 4-to-5 shots, 80.0% TS, -2

Looney may not start again until the end of the season, but could take a big part in the series, especially with Steven Adams’ return. He was not tempted to play too much in the game, but Green’s release forced the issue, and Looney stepped in and climbed up.

Group: A

Damion Lee

3 minutes, 0 points, 1 return, 1 support, 1 return, +3

Lee didn’t get enough show time to show off anything good or bad, but it was fun to see him sitting outside for a few minutes without wasting any trash.

Education: Incomplete

Jordan Poole

38 minutes, 31 points, 8 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 blocks, 4 turns, 3 errors, 12 shot for 20, 5-for-10 throws, 2-for-2 free throws, 74.2% TS, +10

Poole returned to the bench for the first time on March 10. Thus, he remembered everything from serving that the name starter is not important, since he led the team in minutes.

He also guided them in all other ways. The Grizzlies had no Poole answer. Some of them were because they gave their time and resources to respond to Curry and Thompson, and some of them are because Poole is a true star.

Its effectiveness is not simply the result of a fire. It’s because he’s so cautious with his shooting decision (while holding a fire). Just look at his shot picture.

And on some fun games, as well as continuing his defensive defense, and you can say one word: Poole is outraged that Morant has won the Most Valuable Player.

Jokes aside, it was a star-studded game from the star players and, despite Warriors Hall of Fame at its core, it’s hard to imagine what the team would look like without JP.

Send game bonus: He led the team in points, assistants, and additions / deductions, which tied the team leading the return.
