Players that must step up for the Golden State Warriors: Jordan Poole

Jordan Poole’s role is just as important. Despite Golden State being without Damion Lee, Poole has had his number called to provide offense on the floor. With that being said, Poole contributed 15 points on 5-9 shooting from the floor during the team’s final game of the regular season against the Grizzlies.

Poole showed his ability to play deserving minutes since his days in the G League bubble. Since that point, he has understood what it takes to win and is making all of the necessary plays.
