Steve Kerr Reacts To Jordan Poole's 43- Point Display Without Stephen Curry
Of course, the Golden State Warriors won't succeed without Stephen Curry.
But in light of how Jordan Poole performed on Sunday, it suddenly seems much more likely that the reigning champs will be able to weather the storm of losing their franchise player.
In Golden State's exhilarating 126-110 victory over the struggling Toronto Raptors, Poole erupted for a career-high 43 points and six assists,
scoring from all three levels of the floor while also involving his teammates.
He combined quick mid-range jumpers with forceful assaults all the way to the hoop to shoot 14 of 23 overall and 5 of 11 from beyond the arc.
Poole profited from Toronto's overly aggressive game plan as well, identifying shooters early when he noticed numerous tiers of defence.
It's difficult to think that Poole has ever performed better than he did on Sunday. On the postgame platform, Steve Kerr, though, wouldn't quite go that far.
"He's played a lot of great games for us. If it's not the best, it's definitely one of the few best," Kerr said.
"He was great at both ends. His defense was excellent. I thought he was patient offensively, got us into our offense well. He just set the tone. He just carried us."
