Golden State Warriors: Jordan Poole must change his shot selection

The Golden State Warriors are in full development mode for the 2019 season, so while a postseason run is no longer the top priority, the growth of the young players has taken its place. Eric Paschall has made the most of his opportunity, and while Jordan Poole has gotten starting minutes, he’s clearly going through rookie growing pains.

That was to be expected, given that Poole was drafted in order to be a spark for scoring off the bench, but he has undoubtedly hit a rough patch in his last few outings. Poole has the entire season to hone his skills as the Warriors re-enter contender status next season, but he can make adjustments now in the short-term for payoff in the future.
