#2 For Poole it was his second straight game scoring 30 points his offensive prowess has not failed him and it seems like he’s finding the splash in his shots as each game goes on.

#3 Poole was like a machine beyond the arch hitting eight three pointers and going 10 for 13 on shot attempts.

#4 Poole is the first Warrior besides Stephen Curry to have consecutive 30 point games since D’Angelo Russell did for three in a row it back in Dec 29, 2019 to Jan 12, 2020.

On the Warriors podcast with Barbara:

#1 Barbara taking a look at the Golden State Warriors roster for the 2021-22 season the total cost on just players was $334 million.

#2 Barbara in the final pre season game Stephen Curry showed off his handy work scoring 41 points looks like he’s picked up where he left off from last season.

#3 The Warriors have rolled to a perfect record in pre season play, was this by design that other teams didn’t want to show their strengths before the regular season starts or the Warriors are really that good.

#4 Andrew Wiggins sat because of a knee injury and head coach Steve Kerr that Wiggins is not quite where he wants to be that kept him out for a couple days worth of practice.

#5 The Los Angeles Lakers did not win one pre season game going 0-5 was this a matter of the Lakers not wanting show all their cards toward the regular season or is there something to worry about as they will host the Warriors at Staples Center on Tuesday night’s opener.

On the Warriors podcast with Barbara:

#1 The Golden State Warriors have waived guard Langston Galloway who was averaging 3.3 points per pre season game. Langston wasn’t providing enough offense to the Warriors liking and was cut from the team.

#2 Langston also had a low average of rebounds with 3.7 and assists 1.7 although he had very limited time to try and prove himself averaging 8.8 minutes a game.

#3 Klay Thompson showed he still had game after coming off two seasons of injuries with a pair of mighty one handed throw downs in practice at the Warriors facility. Thompson is expected to take the next two pre season games this Tuesday and Friday off before seeing action in the first regular season game.

#4 Barbara, from what you’ve seen how ready for the regular season is Thompson we know it’s been two seasons and that last NBA Finals vs. Toronto since Thompson has played a complete game.

#5 Last April 15th center James Wiseman underwent surgery for a right meniscal tear the Warriors report that Wiseman is making progress during rehab and soon will be taking shooting practice and other on court plays. Wiseman will be observed and it’s to be determined when he will return.

On the Warriors podcast with Barbara:

#1 It’s hard to believe after two long years of various injuries for Golden State Warrior Klay Thompson in 2019 the ACL tear and in 2020 the ruptured Achilles.

#2 It’s been a long road to recovery but although it’s just an exhibition game on Monday in Portland Thompson has to be happy to be back and although .

#3 You have to go all the way back to the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors which Thompson and the Warriors lost. Thompson said his goal is to get back to that level of play after the last two years off.

#4 How important is it for Stephen Curry to get his splash brother back and will they be able to rekindle that old magic again or will the key word be old after two years of not playing together as there might have been some aging process since Thompson’s return?

#5 Thompson said once he gets back out on the floor tonight he wants to be an effective player and a player that can execute will it take some time to get adjusted or know the kind of player Thompson is he’ll be firing on all cylinders right away?
