Jordan Poole Is Taking a Star Turn in The NBA Playoffs For Golden State Warriors

Milwaukee native Jordan Poole, a standout at Rufus King High School before his time at Michigan and with the Golden State Warriors, shares a floor with the star-studded “big three” of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. And yet, Poole has been carving out a place among basketball royalty.

With 29 points on 10-of-16 shooting, Poole played a major role in his team’s 126-106 win over Denver on Monday, helping the Warriors take a 2-0 series lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference opening-round matchup.

The 6-4 shooting guard added five rebounds and eight assists while hitting half of his 3-point attempts (5 of 10).

What is going to do Jordan Poole?

That follows up a 30-point performance in Game 1, a 123-107 win over the Nuggets two nights earlier, the first playoff game of Poole’s career.

With Curry coming off the bench on his way back from a foot injury, Poole has remained in the starting lineup, and he shot 9 of 13 from the field with five three-pointers in that game. Only Wilt Chamberlain and Mitch Richmond had also scored 30 points in a playoff debut in franchise history.

What Thompson say about Polle?

“What a star in the making,” Thompson said of Poole after Game 1, and ThompsonĀ referred to Poole as “Baby Steph” after Game 2.
