Warriors Fan Blown Away By Jordan Poole’s Slick Move (Video)

The Golden State Warriors defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 118-112 on Friday night behind an incredible effort from Jordan Poole.

Poole, who has been forced to wear a lot of different hats thus far in 2022-23, finished the evening with an eye-popping 41 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds.

The 23-year-old also made sure to showcase a lot of his signature razzle-dazzle along the way. One play in particular that occurred with his squad down eight and a little more than four minutes remaining in the outing really got some fans out of their seats:

Now, it is worth remembering that Poole has a documented history of really performing well when given the proper motivation by fans.

Because of that, NBA Twitter had an absolute field day with his latest efforts:

Does this particular effort top the time Poole saw two blondes sitting courtside and went nuts? Probably not. But this definitely lands somewhere between his Zendaya game and the time he tried to flirt with ESPN’s Malika Andrews.

Big picture, on Friday night Poole looked like every bit the star the Warriors thought he would be when they gave him that four-year, $123 million contract extension this past summer.

Obviously he isn’t Stephen Curry. No one is. But when he is on one, Poole can definitely do a good impression of the Warriors’ best player.

Golden State’s title defense campaign hasn’t gone according to plan thus far. They are currently 19-18 and sit ninth in the West.

That said, the NBA season is a long one. And if Poole can keep up some version of what he displayed against the Blazers, he could really propel the Warriors to new heights.

Over the past year Poole has learned how to be a truly great NBA player. Now he just needs to figure out how to do it on a consistent basis.
