Steph Curry, Jordan Poole graded in Warriors loss to Wolves


Hmm, this hurts for a while.Hopefully golden state warriors can bounce against Denver Nuggets on thursday night Minnesota Timberwolves stab.

Dubs played very well in the 3rd quarter and maintained a 14-point lead early in the 4th quarter. He faced one of the hottest teams in the league and looked to be in control of the game away. And with their offense getting sloppier than sloppy, the defense forgot how to contain former teammate D’Angelo Russell, and the game went into overtime. There, Russell quickly fouled out, giving the Warriors a clear advantage.

they blew the advantage, Lost 119-114.

Let’s evaluate the players. As always, the grades are based on my expectations for each player, with the ‘B’ representing average play for that player.

Note: True Shooting Percentage (TS) is a measure of scoring efficiency that takes into account 3 throws and free throws. Going into Wednesday’s game, the league averaged TS at 57.9%.

draymond green

39 minutes, 10 points, 12 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal, 5 turnovers, 3 fouls, 5-10 shots, 0-3 3s, 50.0% TS, -6

A very strange thing happened in this game: Green and Stephen Curry were not on the same page. passed to Curry, resulting in a plethora of Dray turnovers.

Their disconnect felt more like Curry than Dray, so I’m going to give him a little pass on some turnovers. There were a few times, but Callie never went there.

It was strange to watch.

Either way, Dray’s offense was a below-average game, but I still thought he was one of the better players on the team. rice field.

Grade: B.

Post-game bonus: Lead the team in rebounding.

Andrew Wiggins

35 minutes, 16 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 turnovers, 2 fouls, 7-13 shooting, 1-4 3s, 1-2 free throws, 57.6% TS, -8

Offensively, this was a step in the right direction for Wiggins, but he hasn’t scored with above-league-average efficiency since his game with the superstar. houston rockets Dec. 3 when he suffered an adductor injury.

Wiggins, in particular, wasn’t on the court in the final minutes of regulation… at least not until the final minute. No major impact.

Props to him for the 7 rebounds. In the last 12 games he has not had more than five boards.

Grade: B-

Stephen Curry

43 minutes, 29 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, 4 turnovers, 5 fouls, 8-21 shooting, 5-12 3s, 8-9 free throws, 58.1% TS, -5

For most players, this is one of the best games of the year. However, when it comes to Curry, it remains pretty disappointing. He was dynamic early on, keeping circus shots, aggressions and threes on the ground.

But as the game progressed, he became more and more sloppy. He repeatedly miscommunicated with Green, delayed an unpardonable turnover, and didn’t hit a very good shot to win the game at the end of regulation. When the offense started to move, his defense suffered when he started reaching.

He looked confused. I’d like to know if Carr will let him handle Thursday’s game, maybe a little rest will make him feel better…but he can also get on his horse again and destroy everyone.

Grade: C

Post-game bonus: Leading the team in points.

Klay Thompson

40 minutes, 14 points, 6 rebounds, 1 steal, 2 turnovers, 1 foul, 3-13 shooting, 2-7 3s, 6-6 free throws, 44.8% TS, +2

It’s a pretty rough game for Clay, but I’d like to point out how much he’s stepped up on the grass lately. There was not.

Grade: D+

jordan pool

32 minutes, 18 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 turnovers, 3 fouls, 4-13 shooting, 1-5 3s, 9-10 free throws, 51.7% TS, -9

Poole’s energy in this match was great. He made some key plays in offensive offense that actually acted as spark plugs. He flew into the lane to rebound and keep the ball alive and was an aggressive passer. I thought his defense was pretty solid.

Unfortunately, his shot selection and making wasn’t great. But I liked the rest of his game.

Grade: B-

Post-game bonus: The number of assists is tied for the top of the team, and the team is the worst plus or minus.

Jonathan Kuminga

15 minutes, 10 points, 3 rebounds, 1 steal, 1 block, 1 turnover, 4 fouls, 4-8 shots, 1-2 3s, 1-2 free throws, 56.3% TS, -4

Kuminga has had a real fouling problem lately…he’s fouled 29 times in his last seven games. He brought good energy in this game, but I thought it was a little out of control, still more head and shoulders above him than he was earlier in the season, but he’s been so impactful this season was not a player.

Grade: B-

Kevon Looney

28 minutes, 10 points, 9 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks, 4 fouls, 4-5 shooting, 2-2 free throws, 85.0% TS, +12

Rooney may have moved to the bench, but he hasn’t done anything to reduce the impact on the game. With Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns out, Rooney absolutely ate every aspect of the game. As a result, he was on the court as part of the closing lineup. It was great.

Class A

Post-game bonus: Lead the team with plus and minus.

Anthony Lam

7 minutes, 0 points, 1 assist, 1 foul, 0-1 shots, 0-1 3s, 0.0% TS, 0 plus/minus

Ram is very close to the end of his two-way contract term…but he also seems to be trickling out of the rotation. At some point, the Warriors will need to add them or incorporate other players into their rotation.

Anyway, Ram seemed to be lost in the limited time.

Grade: C-

Donte Divincenzo

25 minutes, 7 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, 1 turnover, 1 foul, 3-7 shots, 1-4 3s, 50.0% TS, -7

DDV was pretty solid, if not spectacular, in nearly every phase of the game. He’s such a great bench his player and looks great when the Warriors are playing well, but a little uninspiring when they’re not.

Grade: B.

Post-game bonus: The team is tied for the lead in the number of assists.

DNP on Wednesday: Patrick Baldwin Jr., Jamaican Green, Moses Moody, James Weisman

Inactive Wednesday: Andre Iguodala, Ty Jerome, Ryan Rollins
