Golden State Warriors young guard Jordan Poole performed brilliantly by scoring 30 points in the 121-107 preseason win against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The 22-year-old managed to score seven 3-pointers in the game. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr praised Poole for his overall performance.

“I thought Jordan was fantastic offensively,” Kerr said after the game. “He played with supreme confidence and really gave a huge burst with his scoring. What we have to see next is his defensive effort.”

His performance was not surprising, as the Warriors have one of the best shooters in the NBA — Stephen Curry.

“The biggest thing is just figure out what your routine is,” Curry said at shootaround session. “These first two preseason games you have to figure out what your routine is, how you get ready for a game from the time you get on the plane to the time the game starts. There’s a certain pecking order of things that you do to get ready, mentally and physically. So identify what that is (and) fine tune it.”

Poole certainly followed Curry’s advice.

“I was just letting them ride,” Poole said.

The Warriors will host the Denver Nuggets and the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday and Friday, respectively.
