Steve Kerr has analyzed the current situation of Warriors. Jordan Poole of the Golden State Warriors is in the midst of a career-high scoring season, averaging 20.6 points per game. In addition, with superstar teammate Steph Curry out, he has increased his scoring average to 28.6 points per game over the previous ten games.
However, because Poole has battled with consistency, the averages might be deceiving. He frequently swings between games in which he shoots above 50% and games in which he converts barely 40% of his tries.
Some Warriors supporters may be frustrated by this, but according to coach Steve Kerr, Poole’s inconsistency derives from his exceptional talent for his age. Steve Kerr recently stated on 95.7 The Game’s “Damon and Ratto” that good young players may sometimes overcomplicate the game. This is due to the fact that they have too many offensive maneuvers to choose from.
“I’ve always thought that the game is more challenging for the more gifted players when they’re young because they have a larger menu of options in front of them,” Steve Kerr said.
Jordan Poole’s abundance of offensive options, and accompanying hesitation at times, is partially to blame for his career-low 3.5 turnovers per game. This statistic has risen to 4.9 per game in his last ten outings as a major ball carrier.
Some of these turnovers have cost the Warriors and Steve Kerr, as seen by their loss to the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.
Despite this, the Warriors are still 6-4 in their previous ten games without Steph Curry. Jordan Poole and the company have also had more opportunities to establish themselves.

The Golden State Warriors’ five-game winning run ended Wednesday night when they were defeated 122-119 at home by the Detroit Pistons. Steve Kerr has also highlighted on Steph Curry’s return.
Despite behind for long periods of the game, the Warriors had an excellent opportunity to win. With 13.2 seconds remaining, Jordan Poole possessed the ball with the Warriors losing 117-116.
Poole then attempted some dribble offence before slipping and collapsing as Pistons player Alec Burks swiped the ball. Later, Saddiq Bey made a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to give Detroit the victory.
Poole had already hit a couple of important jumpers for the club, and Steve Kerr stated that the Warriors trusted him to have the ball in his hands late in the game. Steve Kerr also stated that Poole’s error will be a valuable learning lesson.
