The Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors, which have been on a scary rise recently, are getting a lot of money. “CP3” Chris Paul, who has been away from the court for a while due to a fracture of his left wrist, will return.

U.S. sports media ESPN reported on the 27th, “Paul will return to Tuesday’s game when Golden State faces the Washington Wizards.”

Paul, who has been playing in the NBA for 19th season, moved to the Golden State ahead of this season. Many were expecting synergy effect with Paul, one of the top point guards in the league, and Stephen Curry, one of the best players in the league.

However, Paul was unable to play after undergoing surgery in January due to a major wrist fracture. In the meantime, Golden State also showed ups and downs and rarely rose to the top. Paul, who had been suffering from large and small injuries throughout his career, was unable to escape it again this time. It was even more regrettable because Paul, who was mainly deployed during Curry’s break, was averaging 8.9 points and 7.2 assists in 32 games before he was injured.

However, the Golden State has started to gain momentum by garnering 11 wins (two losses) in the recent 13 games. The team is still ranked 10th, which is the Maginot Line to advance to the play-in tournament, but is only 0.5 games behind the ninth-ranked Los Angeles Lakers (31 wins and 28 losses), and has narrowed the gap to four games against the sixth-ranked Phoenix Suns (34 wins and 24 losses), which go directly to the playoffs.

In particular, Golden State is using a strategy to use Clay Thompson, who has recently been a undisputed main player, as a six-man starting off the bench, and this is working well.

“Paul will play every hour that Curry does not play for,” Golden State coach Steve Kerr said after his three-game winning streak ended after losing against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday. ESPN said, “Golden State expects that once Paul returns, the synergy effect of Paul and Thompson, and the second team unit, will be huge. Of course, it is unclear how the time will be allocated.” 토토사이트 추천
