The San Francisco franchise achieves its eighth victory in nine games after a great performance by Jordan Poole, and is established as first in the Western Conference

Golden State Warriors continues to take advantage of its affordable schedule in this start of the 2021/22 NBA season. The San Francisco franchise beat the Houston Rockets this morning at home (by a score of 107-120) to reaffirm itself as the solo leader of the Western Conference standings with the best record in the league: 8-1.

In a match without many complications for Steve Kerr’s men, Jordan Poole stands out as MVP of the night. The guard, who continues to position himself as the current favorite to be Most Improved Player at the end of the season, has reached 25 points, four rebounds and five assists in a duel where Stephen Curry has failed to shine.

The Warriors star has played 26 and a half minutes of the match, where they contributed 20 goals and two assists, shooting 36.4% in triples (4-11 T3). Gary Payton II maintains his great form as a substitute player and as one of the leaders of the defense, contributing 10 points, three rebounds, three assists and four steals.

In a Rockets with a missing Jalen Green (nine points and two assists), the best has been the ‘sophomore’ Jae’Sean Tate with a double-double of 21 points and 10 rebounds, followed by Daniel Theis with 14-5 in points -bounce.

Usman Garuba

Usman Garuba has barely been able to play four minutes of the game (those of the garbage, with the match sentenced), where he has contributed three points and two rebounds. The Spaniard is still out of the Houston Rockets rotation, and is expected to end up being sent to the G-League.
