Can Jordan Poole continue his hot shooting against the Orlando Magic?

The rookie had a breakout game against the Heat; the Dubs will need more of that today to steal a win in Florida.

The Golden State Warriors are in Orlando today for a clash with the Magic. Six of the Magic’s seven wins have come at home in the Amway Center. Conversely, the Dubs are 2-9 on the road.

If the Warriors want to buck both of those trends, they’re going to need rookie Jordan Poole to continue with the hot hand he showed against the Miami Heat Friday night. Poole nailed five triples in that game, a career high, and an encouraging sign despite his abysmal 26.9% shooting from beyond the arc.

If Poole can heat up, that will stretch the floor and allow the Warriors’ bruisers Eric Paschall, Omari Spellman, and Marquese Chriss to bully their way to the rim.

This is Golden State’s only trip to Orlando this season, so they might as well get out of there with a win. Let’s start December off right Dub Nation, let’s go Warriors!
