Suns did a great job on Steph Curry in first half: 3/13 FG, Ayton/Bridges blocked his last two shots. Jordan Poole had 18. Otto Porter hit four 3s. Phoenix up two. But the Devin Booker hamstring injury is half's biggest story. Out 2nd half, presumably should miss Friday rematch.
Sixteen made 3s for Otto Porter off the bench the last 4.5 games.
Let it not be forgotten in this defeat that along with Jordan Poole both Otto Porter Jr. and Gary Payton II were excellent tonight and the reason they even had a fighting chance:
OPJ - 16pts, 6rbs, 3asts, 1stl, +10 on 6/11 FG, 4/8 3PT
GP2 - 8pts, 7rbs, 1ast, 1stl, +17 on 4/6 FG
Over the last 5 games, Otto Porter Jr is averaging 12.6 pts on 50% 3pt (16-32)
Season high 30mins for Otto Porter.
16/6 with 4/8 from 3.
Steve Kerr on Phoenix’s attention on Curry: “When teams are going to commit people to Steph, there are going to be openings. There are going to be openings for Jordan (Poole), openings for Otto (Porter), and openings for Klay Thompson. That’s going to be fun.”

Otto Porter really look like somebody grand daddy on the court
Enfim nem tudo foi tristeza hoje.
Foi um jogo excepcional de Jordan Poole e Otto Porter Jr que combinaram pra 44 Pontos (28 Poole) e (16 do Otto).
Apesar de ter ficado -9 +/- ele foi um dos jogadores que manteve o time vivo durante a segunda unidade.
Steve Kerr é HORROROSO, PÉSSIMO, LASTIMÁVEL, BURRO em ajustes de rotação durante os jogos.
Poole quente, tirou ele.
Payton bem, roubando bolas, pegando rebotes, tirou ele.
Otto Porter acertando tudo, tirou ele.
S/o to Jordan Poole and Otto Porter Jr for actually showing up tonight
@NoCar_Kevin @Cameronn05 @jrichardgoodman
That’s tough bro. I think it gotta be dray at the 5 despite him lacking size vs ayton and you play guys like otto porter or iggy at PF because when you put true centers vs booker and cp3 they go at them bigs in the pick and roll. Bucks moved Giannis to the C. Killed their offense
when someones hot, you play them NOT pull them out 😭 example : Jordan Poole, Gary Payton II, Otto Porter Jr. @warriors
Jordan Poole and Otto Porter also shot 10-20 from three
People are wise to Klay's return, so probably just roll with Poole and see how it all plays out.
And then on Otto Porter, the Dubs were without Iguodala and Lee so he played 30 mins and if his body doesn't snap in half it's a win.
The Suns did a nice job of containing Steph, though that stuff always gets overblown. I'm sure he'd smash 'em in a rematch. Regardless, Jordan Poole and Otto Porter Jr did the damage and Poole remains a great SELL guy if you can pull it off. But you probably can't.
Otto Porter Jr : 16 points (6-11 shooting & 4-8 from 3), 6 rebounds & 3 assists in 30 minutes off the bench
Draymond Green : 8 points (4-8 shooting), 11 rebounds, 5 assists & 5 turnovers in 32 minutes
Otto Porter JR looks EXACTLY how I expect someone named Otto Porter JR to look!
O Poole e o Otto Porter já estão aproveitando essas oportunidades, ENTÃO FALA PARA OS CARAS PASSAREM A BOLA PRA ELES MANO https://t.co/OQqHYB4zM9
Cause Poole and Otto Porter went crazy
We wasted a great night from Jordan Poole and Otto porter smh
lol, I'm not complaining about this game though.
If anything, I'm happy to see Poole & Otto Porter Jr step up whilst Steph was in a funk and Wiggins playing with a back injury
IN 2 YRS...EVERYONE WILL KNOW KUMINGA..He didn't get even any playing time tonight and won't this year..but i predict by next yr he'll take the place of an Otto Porter or Nemanja and be the 8th man..Then year after he'll start either for Golden State or they'll have to trade him
Steph Curry got outplayed by Otto Porter, Draymond green, jordan poole, jae crowder, cameron johnson 💀 (obviously chris paul, who’s the better point guard). And lost to the suns who didnt have devin booker for majority of the game 😭😭😭
OTTO PORTER JR jogou MUITO, merece pika.
