The Golden State Warriors have been underdogs in the majority of their games this season, thanks to their roster being crushed by injuries. Last night, when the struggling Chicago Bulls made a pitstop in the Chase Center, they represented a real opportunity for the Dubs to get a win.
Golden State rose to the challenge in a game that was close for the majority of the contest, and finished with a killer instinct. There was a lot of credit to go around, but who is your Thanksgiving Warrior Wonder?
25 points and 7 rebounds on 9-of-17 shooting is a stellar statline for the rookie Paschall, and I’m starting to get used to seeing pretty boxscores next to his name.

Eric Paschall has his sixth 20-point game of the season, which ranks as the third-most 20-point performances among all rookies this season (trails Ja Morant & Kendrick Nunn).— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) November 28, 2019
The crafty veteran Burks tallied 23 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists on 9-of-19 shooting in a steadying performance. When the Warriors had lulls offensively, Burks was there to provide intelligent actions to get the Dubs unstuck.
My favorite play from him last night was this slick passing ballet that led to a wide open corner threeball.

The truest form of Warriors basketball involves this type of synergy and ball movement: GIVE IT UP AND YOU’LL GET IT BACK!
The second year player’s 13 points, 11 rebounds, 3 blocks, and 2 steals in 24 minutes off of the bench changed the game. Spellman is like Mo Buckets infused with three energy drinks. This guy is constantly using his big body to make plays on both ends.

Spellman is growing in confidence with each game, something he credits to head coach Steve Kerr.

11 points? 5 rebounds? 4 steals? 2 blocks? 5-of-5 shooting from the field, with a made three-pointer?
CHRISS WAS OUT THERE BALLING LAST NIGHT OFF OF THE BENCH.
Marquese Chriss continues to boss the paint. He recorded 2 blocks and 4 steals against the Bulls. He's improved his DFG% on shots 6ft or closer to the rim to 43.5% (40/92) which is 7th in the league (min. 30 DFGA). He's 12th in the league in Block Pct and 20th in Steal Pct. pic.twitter.com/z1MgxgMnEM— r/Warriors (@GSWReddit) November 28, 2019
Draymond Green had 8 assists, 3 steals, and 2 blocks, morphing into combo between a tough old-school point guard who orchestrates the offense, and a paint-protecting defensive beast. His ability to be a coach on the floor kept the Warriors in the game whenever the Bulls threatened.
Glenn Robinson III had the best plus/minus out of all the starters with a +12. He didn’t have the best shooting night (4-of-11 from the field for 11 points) but his presence as a glue guy is everything the Dubs needed in the winning effort.
Who was the Warrior Wonder in the win over the Bulls?
