After a tough loss to the Dallas Mavericks to snap their three-game winning streak, the Golden State Warriors returned to San Francisco’s Chase Center for some home cooking against the Chicago Bulls on Friday night.
Despite a late attempt at a comeback by the Bulls, the Warriors slammed the door behind Jordan Poole. The 23-year-old guard exploded off the bench, registering his third 30-point performance of the 2022-23 campaign.
Poole led the Warriors with a game-high 30 points on 11-of-18 shooting from the field to go along with an assist, steal and rebound in only 23 minutes. Poole caught fire from beyond the arc, drilling a season-high seven triples from long distance.
Draymond Green recorded a near triple-double with 13 points, 10 assists, nine rebounds and two blocks in 36 minutes as the Warriors secured a 119-111 victory.
With their win over the Bulls, the Warriors have now cracked off nine consecutive wins at home. Golden State will have another chance to extend their home winning streak on the second leg of a back-to-back on Saturday against the Houston Rockets.
