What we learned when Paul Bowers beat Dobbs’ win over Tottenham

SAN FRANCISCO – All signs were of the Warriors’ Monday night attack at the Chase Center against the San Antonio Spurs.

The Run TMC trio of Tim Hardaway, Mitch Richmond, and Chris Mullin took over the broadcast in the NBC Sports Bay area. The first 10,000 fans to enter the building were given a Jordan Bull Bobblehead, complete with a flamingo and a Larry O’Brien trophy. The product was on the pitch better.

Returning to their happy spot on their court, the Warriors finally looked like a complete product in their 132-95 win over Spurs.

As a team, the Warriors shot 54 percent from the field and 51.1 percent outside the arc. They had 40 rebounds and 35 assists, along with 44 points in the paint and 19 points for the quick break. Their sixth win of the season was pure domination.

While no one Splash Brother was available, one honorary one stepped up big time. Beginning with the unavailable Klay Thompson, Poole was the player who stunned the Warriors front desk and fan base last season. He easily had his best game of the season, scoring 36 points in under 30 minutes. The Warriors had a 37-point lead when Paul was knocked out eight minutes before the end of the fourth quarter.

How satisfying was this win? Steve Curry only had to play 27 minutes. He scored 16 points with five rebounds, five assists, and three throws, and enjoyed an X-point win.

Here are three points from the Warriors’ 37-point win.

Early pee party

Playing alongside Carrie, Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green, and Kevin Looney is definitely cool. Ask Paul about it. Or better yet, watch how he performs alongside these four.

Steve Kerr has been keen to surround Paul with more scorers and veterans lately when he first gets into the game. With Thompson sitting on the second night of a back-to-back game, Paul didn’t have to wait this time. He’s back in the starting line-up, and he definitely looks relaxed.

After Curry’s 3 pointer to get the Warriors on the scoreboard, Paul scored the next six points for Golden State. That was the beginning of what was to come. Paul was a plus-minus-plus12 in the first quarter, scoring 14 points in nine minutes while shooting 5-for-6 from the field and 2-for-3 on 3 throws.

In each of the previous two games, Paul scored 18 points. Entering the first half, he scored 19 points without any turnovers and was a plus 17 in 17 minutes. The scoring didn’t stop there.

The second half saw Paul produce another 15 points in 12 minutes. When it came out forever, it was plus 34 at the time. Energy, vanity and aggressiveness followed Paul on both sides of the ball, and in an efficient manner. Overall, it was 13 for 20 from the field and 5 for 10 on 3 throws and finished without a single turn. Paul added three steals and one block.

So far this season, Paul has now started three games. Those three games have resulted in him scoring 30 points, 20 points and now 36 points, which is good with an average of 28.6 points.

welcome back

Kerr’s first two bench players against Tottenham on Monday night were a duo who were suspended from the bench recently. Moses Modi has seen no action in each of the past two games, and JaMychal Green has been a DNP (not played) in three consecutive competitions. Both entered at the 4:53 mark in the first quarter.

All of them made 3 indicators in the first quarter. Moody also provided two assists, and Greene got two rebounds. Their return to rotation couldn’t have been much better.

Greene’s night ended early after he flew to the sidelines, but he looked fine and got out on his own. Prior to that, Greene played 16 minutes, scored nine points, added five rebounds and was a plus 18.

Moody played 26 minutes and performed each calculation. He scored 11 points, went 4-9 from the field, had five assists and was a plus 14. Most importantly, Moody didn’t make a single foul or spin.

group effort

Whether it’s indoors or out, Curry should be smiling after this win. Even a generational star needs help. Curry this season gave the Warriors everything he had, and then some. Coming into Monday night, Curry averaged 37.2 points in five Golden State wins.

For once, Carrie can keep his head at home. He didn’t have to score close to 40 points for a victory. With the Warriors advancing 99-68 in the fourth quarter, Curry could cool off on the sidelines. This is a victory in itself.

With a solid win, Kerr was able to give minutes to all of his 12 active players. All 12 scored, and the six found themselves in double digits. The bench had the best overall performance, scoring 64 points.

Enjoy a sigh of relief, Steve. You’ve got it.
