Warriors swallows the Mavericks with only 9 Minions in their Roster

James Wiseman, Kevon Looney and Eric Paschall all 3 big Men (Playing center positions) were injured before tonight’s game against The Mavericks at the American Airlines Center Arena in Dallas.

From The Warriors end, the ball was moving like no other game in this season, pure basketball flow and a beauty to watch. Kelly Oubre Jr enjoyed so much space on the court playing a solid 36 minutes, scoring 40 (A personal career high) out of which he made 70% of the Ten 3 pointers shot throughout the game, barring the great hustle to get so many of those rebounds (closed the game with 8 rebounds).

A decent performance by Steph as well, who kinda seemed like he’s having a bad day, but did manage to score 28 points despite off the low 3P%.

The Mavericks coming from a win against the Atlanta Hawks, the night before.

The back to back games did impact their performance, they looked surprisingly slow, not being able to keep up to the high pace set up by The Warriors. A very poor performance by Kristaps Porzingis, not able to pick the better choices with his positioning, fortunate to have compensated that with a few 3 pointers made, specifically in those situations.

Are big Men always as effective as they are expected to be?

Based on Skill and Athleticism, most big men stand last judging by these 2 main criteria. Players in a Center position are expected to dominate with the given size of their bodies but also thrive while gaining experience, yet the development curb is always far from being proportional to smaller sized players.

What do you think? are big players, real Assets to a basketball organisation, or is it just for the show and Halo effect on other teams.
