The Best of the Dubs’ Preseason — in GIFs
And as quickly as they came, the preseason matchups are done and over with for the Dubs. Regardless of the final results over the five exhibition games, the Warriors demonstrated their ability to bring a new squad together and work as a functioning unit.
But before we roll into the regular season with Opening Night at Chase Center on Thursday, let’s take one last look at the top plays of the 2019 preseason!
Curry for 40
In an electric performance on October 10, Stephen Curry splashed his way to 40 points on 6-of-9 shooting from beyond the arc against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
D’Angelo Russell is known to be crafty, and Dub Nation got to see it on Wednesday in Los Angeles. At one point, he headed into a trap set by three Lakers… but keep your eye on the ball.
Marquese Chriss turned his invitation to camp into a regular season roster spot with the Dubs after proving he has the skills and ability to help on both ends of the floor. Case in point: the pick-and-roll with Russell on Wednesday. The dunk is pretty nice too.
You can say he is the “Splash Nephew,” or he has an “overdose of swag.” Either way, Dub Nation got to watch first-round pick Jordan Poole in action at his first game in Chase Center on October 5 as he was left open after hustling to his spot in transition.
Curry on the Boards
He may have been getting buckets this preseason, but Curry also did some work on the glass against the Lakers on October 14, as shown by an offensive rebound he inhaled over the 6-foot-11-inch Dwight Howard and 6-foot-5-inch Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Result: a quick two points in the paint.
Coming into camp, Robinson III said he was happy to fill-in for the injured Klay Thompson on defense. Keeping his eyes on the passing lane and taking the ball down court for the dunk against the Timberwolves certainly did the trick.
Russell with the Handles
Between the legs into a little hesitation move against Minnesota… Russell brought some slick moves with him to the Bay Area.
Teamwork Making the Dream Work
With a relatively new squad only having two weeks to come together and prepare for the regular season, there were questions about how well the Dubs would jive on the hardwood. Well…
But now we put the past behind us and get ready for the main attraction. Next up for the Warriors: the 2019-20 NBA season!
