Simultaneously, for the Warriors, this performance is a true testament to the diversity and depth of talent in this roster. Not just the veterans, even the young stars like Jordan Poole can carry the offense on an off night for any of the veterans.

Many experts including Warriors’ players like Draymond were skeptical of the Warriors’ approach to this season. This combination of young talent and a veteran core to make the championship run was on the test. However, it seems like Steve Kerr has found yet another tactic of coaching brilliance and that is unfolding well.
