NBA Twitter reacts to Jordan Poole’s 34-point performance sparking Warriors’ blowout win vs. Clippers

For the second consecutive game, the Golden State Warriors were trailing by double-figures heading into halftime. However, similar to their win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday, a vintage third-quarter run sparked a comeback effort for the Warriors. 

Trailing by 11 points, Jordan Poole helped the Warriors turn things around against Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night. 

After a quiet start to the game, Poole notched 22 of his game-high 34 points in the third quarter. The Warriors outscored the Clippers 42-16 in the third quarter and never looked back. 

Poole’s 34 points paired with a vintage third-quarter run helped the Warriors cruise to a blowout win over the Clippers, 115-91.

Jonathan Kuminga added another strong performance off the bench with 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the field with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 28 minutes. Three other members of the Warriors registered double-figure scoring efforts. 

The Warriors have now rattled off four consecutive wins and hold a half-game lead on the Dallas Mavericks for the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference playoff puzzle. 

Following Golden State’s commanding win over the Clippers, the NBA community on Twitter chimed in with different reactions. Here’s a look at what fans and analysts were saying on Thursday night.
