Ball Scrutiny: 5 Reasons Why Golden State Warriors Dominated Their 2nd Preseason Match Against Timberwolves
After a shameful loss in their first game against Minnesota, the Golden State Warriors awakened their true spirit, thrashed the wolves in their second preseason match up 142-110.
Splash Brothers with a Tsunami
Klay Thompson and Steph with a huge domination from beyond the arc – Warriors’ main weapon. Klay Thompson shot 80% from the rainbow country with 28 points, Steph Curry with a monstrous 40- point explosion, shooting 66 % from the 3 point area. Thompson and Curry shot 14 three-pointers combined, which doubled up the whole Timberwolves 3 point shooting.
High Scoring Ball Game
The first quarter ended, 41-36. A high scoring ball game equals a high-paced ball game which is very evident that the game is going on the Warrior’s run and gun style of play.
Impeccable Play Execution
No matter how they throw in the ball, the hoop just seems to suck it down. It’s just because of the incredible Warrior’s passing style plus the every player really connects with the hoop everytime they take a shot.
Warriors limited the Minnesota in Offensive Rebounding to just 6, thus limiting their extra possession and 2nd chance points.
The warriors, known as outside gunners yet managed to neutralize the inside, they even had a 2 point advantage in terms of points in the shaded area. It leaves no room for Minnesota to start a sizzle as the Warriors are ferocious inside and outside.
Every Drop Counts
The Golden State Warriors shot 80% of their free throws (20-25) which is far well than the first game when they missed 12.
