Wiseman has already proved how talented he is in just four NBA games. During late in the fourth quarter against the Pistons, Wiseman impressed everyone with a phenomenal play. He blocked Mason Plumlee’s mid-range attempt, dribbled the ball all the way to Detroit’s end, and jammed it hard!

Wiseman finished the game with six points, six rebounds, and two amazing blocks. Moving forward, if the 19-year-old keeps developing at this pace, then the sky is the limit for him and the Dubs. The organization massively needs Wiseman to develop into a phenomenal defender and make more shots frequently due to the absence of Draymond Green.

With the road trip coming to an end, the Warriors are now 2-2 in their first four games of the season. Luckily, the Dubs have seven straight home games next and they can use this time to really improve their record this season.

Golden State Warriors building chemistry slowly but surely

The Dubs looked phenomenal in their recent battle with the Detroit Pistons. Apart from scoring at an elite level, the Warriors showed up big on the defensive end as well and held the Pistons to just 38% from the floor.

Furthermore, the Warriors’ players looked in complete sync in the Pistons game and it appeared that the team has finally gelled together under their leader, Stephen Curry. If they manage to sustain their winning form throughout the season, the Warriors might really make it all the way to the NBA Finals.
