Jordan Poole became a threat as he joins the Splash brothers to…
We expected Jordan Poole to be a bit like some stars of show business, music groups or people in sports. His good first-round series in the playoffs would give him great status in the NBA. In his debut in the Western Conference Semifinals, he made you forget those beliefs. He’s a player who thinks he’s a star, he plays like a star…. So, he probably is a star.
Poole landed in the second round just as he left the first round, with personality and a variety on offense that was essential in the Golden State Warriors stealing Game 1 from the Memphis Grizzlies. Something that was bound to happen, according to all the predictions, by all accounts. It also happened in the great series between Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics, with the champion relying on the always impressive Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The Splash Brothers are not just two anymore. The biggest threat for the Warriors was the duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. They were a continuous threat from the perimeter, they knew all the details of the post-season… What we didn’t know is that whoever faces the Bay Area squad will also have to contend with a third threat in Jordan Poole.

The 22-year-old has been in MVP mode for six playoff games. Against Memphis he had to unblock Steve Kerr’s team with several decisive three-pointers and some spectacular courage in front of the basket. His hand doesn’t falter, he doesn’t shrink in front of better teams, and he is already averaging 22.7 points with six assists.

Ja Morant’s game against the Warriors shows the greatness of the Grizzlies point guard. He finished with 34 points and 10 assists, with plays reminiscent of Derrick Rose in his prime. He is fundamental to a Memphis team that competed spectacularly and were only defeated when Golden State brought out their arsenal from the outside.
