Explain One Play: Alec Burks closes out the Bulls

The scrappy ragtag Warriors have painfully blown two straight games in crunch time. With Draymond Green back to steady them, will they blow a third? Alec Burks, Glenn Robinson III, Eric Paschall, Omari Spellman and Sun Tzu add enough offense to put the game away. From the Bulls-Warriors game on Nov 27 2019.

Video Analysis

The scrappy ragtag Warriors have painfully blown two straight games in crunch time. With Draymond Green back to steady them, will they blow a third? Alec Burks, Glenn Robinson III, Eric Paschall, Omari Spellman and Sun Tzu add enough offense to put the game away. From the Bulls-Warriors game on Nov 27 2019.

The key stretch began with a play breakdown which Omari Spellman saved with a savvy breakup of an alley-oop. Alec Burks provided key drives and isolations to expand the Warriors lead from 3 to double digits.

Other Game Notes

  • Klay on broadcast: THAT’S A FOUL... oh sorry I forgot I wasn’t on the bench
  • Dray thought WCS would seal, so he threw a leading pass. No seal, no catch. Next play, Dray himself seals, gets pass. Kind of like he had to show them what he was expecting
  • Klay on broadcast: Eric PascANIMAL
  • I think CHI has actually scouted out Eric Paschall. Seem to be putting a large defender on him, staying on ground and not going for any fakes, then going up after the shot to block. EP will need to adjust.
  • Hahaha, CHI didn’t scout out Paschall’s patented “split two defenders and finish strong through a Lavine foul” move though
  • GSW on track to blow this CHI game in the last minute with a horrible failed inbounds
