Jordan Poole totaled 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-6 3PT), three rebounds, and three assists in the Warriors’ 112-107 loss to the Spurs on Saturday.
Poole continued to play well in the Warriors’ loss to the Spurs scoring 15.0 points scoring the second-most points on the team. This game marks his eighth straight game with a double-digit performance. Listen, this guy has been sensational all year. Even though the scoring stands out most as valuable, his consistency is probably the best contribution he could make to this resurrected Warriors team. Yes, Klay Thompson is coming back. Yes, this will shift the look of this team, but whether Poole is in the starting rotation or coming off the bench, his contribution could remain a critical asset to the team's success. It may even be best for him and fantasy investors if he comes off the bench as he could be the definitive leader for that second group. Poole is setting himself up for success, and even though bumps may come, he has shown that he can leverage his will and explosive energy to achieve top outcomes. He is worth considering any time the Warriors are on the slate in all formats.
