The Golden State Warriors had a different energy to their game in Saturday’s night win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
Still in third place in the Western Conference, Golden State has reclaimed the best home-court record in the NBA, having just 7 losses this season at the Chase Center. They won 122-109 and will take on the Washington Wizards tonight with the hopeful return of Draymond Green.
The Golden State Warriors will be set for the playoffs in just a few months, and these three players could surprisingly be in their postseason rotation.
The Warriors have had a rough few weeks, so this win was huge. It was their first win over a team in the top three in a conference since early January’s win over the Heat. The Dubs got a combined 68 points from Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole.
Golden State has had contributions from players that many didn’t expect to emerge as key rotational players. Head coach Steve Kerr typically shrinks his rotation to around 8 or 9 when the playoffs roll around.
That should be true again this season with the margin for error slim on a team that’s preparing for a deep playoff run. That said, let’s dive into 3 players that could surprisingly be postseason difference-makers.
