Golden state Warrior

golden state warrior

Without a majority of their frontcourt rotation, the Golden State Warriors played one of their most complete games of the season.

Kelly Oubre Jr. had a career-high 40, while Stephen Curry chipped in with 28 as the Dubs went on to a 147-116 win over the Dallas Mavericks.

James Wiseman, Kevon Looney and Eric Paschall are all sidelined with injuries, so Kerr only had a total of nine players suit up for this game. To put things in perspective, Luka Doncic is taller than every Warrior who played in Dallas. The Dubs didn’t have a player taller than 6’7 play against the Mavs.

It didn’t matter though. Dallas couldn’t contain the Warriors’ offense. The Dubs shot 57.3% from the field and 22-of-43 from the 3-point line, dominating in the second half to get the victory.

Here are three takeaways from Golden State’s win:

Oubre’s big night

The 25-year-old has mostly struggled, but we have seen how good he can be when he is on. Not every NBA player can score 40 points on any night, so seeing Oubre have what is potentially a breakout night is a welcome sight for Warriors fans.

Oubre was patient on the offensive end and didn’t force shots. He waited for the game to come to him and was able to hit open jumpers from beyond the arc.

Oubre hit seven out of his 10 3-point attempts, by far his most efficient shooting night of the season.

It’s been a tough start to Oubre’s tenure in the Bay Area, but Kerr is staying patient with him.

“Obviously for Kelly it’s been a rough first quarter of the season, and yet within that span he’s had some excellent games …,” Kerr said. “Kelly’s getting more comfortable, guys in the locker room love him, and wanna help him continue to get comfortable. This was obviously a great night for him”

No one expects Oubre to turn into a volume scorer, but he has the potential to average 15-plus points per night. If he can stay disciplined on the offensive end, it will go a long way in helping Golden State qualify for the postseason.

Draymond bounces back

Green shot just one-of-seven and finished with two points in the loss to Boston. He couldn’t buy a 3-pointer, missing all three of his attempts against the Celtics.

Dray didn’t attempt a single shot from deep against the Mavericks but went three-of-five from the field and hit all five of his free-throws.

The big difference for Green against Dallas is that he didn’t settle for outside shots and was able to attack the rim.

When Green can chip in with some buckets, it enhances the rest of his game. As usual, Green has been great setting up teammates on the offensive end, and that showed again against the Mavericks.
