Chris Paul is with the Warriors: ‘lead’ role revealed.

Chris Paul is with the Warriors: ‘lead’ role revealed.

Chris Paul will serve primarily as floor general for the Golden State Warriors’ second unit. Whether he starts or comes off the bench, according to ESPN’s NBA insider Kendra Andrews. 

On October 24, Paul started the game against the Phoenix Suns and scored 14 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists in 34 minutes. The 12-time All-Star shot 4-for-15 from the field, 0-for-6 from long range and 6-for-7 from the free throw line.

 “I’m really excited,” Paul said after the Warriors’ game against the Suns. “We did a lot of good things tonight. A lot of things that weren’t great. But when we play with guys like Steph [Curry] and Klay [Thompson] who can shoot the ball. I can shoot the three-point shot, consistently… There’s more room there.”

In the end, the Warriors lost to the Suns 108-104. Golden State superstar Stephen Curry scored 27 points and he liked Paul’s performance. 

“That’s what he is as a player – he understands the dynamics and the flow of things. He has a feel for a point guard on the court. And he knows when to push forward. When to calm down and what plays he should call,” Curry said. “We all trust him to make the right decisions and the right plays.

Chris Paul is good

That comfort is there now and it’s only going to get deeper.”  Draymond Green missed the game against the Suns with an ankle injury. So Warriors head coach Steve Kerr joined Paul, Curry, Andrew Wiggins, Klay Thompson and Kevon Looney Starter. 

“Chris was so good — the way he controlled the game, made big plays when you needed them, nine assists — he gave us a different dimension,” Kerr said. “We’re going to start figuring out the nuances and moves we want to use on him. But he’s just a great player.”

The Warriors are back in action on October 27 when they take on the Sacramento Kings.

Chris Paul teases Golden State Warriors’ winning theme in season opener.

 This is a make-or-break league. The Golden State Warriors never spoke their truth during their season-opening 108-104 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night. 

While there was excitement about fouling and giving up 17 offensive rebounds in the first half, the reality was that the Warriors squandered a great opportunity with a poor shooting performance. 

Veteran point guard Chris Paul isn’t worried about the Golden State Warriors’ shooting woes in their loss to the Phoenix Suns. Golden State could never find a rhythm on offense, and its 40 points in the third quarter came from 16 free throws rather than hot shooting.

Chris Paul Averaged

The home team shot only 35.6% from the field. Including 43 of 10 (23.3%) from three-point range.

Nearly every Warriors player struggled on an individual level, with junior Moses Moody (11 points on 4-of-6 shooting) the only player shooting better than 50 percent from the field that night.

While the Suns’ defense deserves credit, Golden State ultimately squandered many great opportunities, especially around the rim.  

After the game, veteran point guard Chris Paul laughed off concerns about the Warriors’ shooting, even referencing a famous playoff game between the team and his former team, the Houston Rockets.  “I’m not really worried about the shooting.

I was on a team that missed 27 three-pointers in a row. I don’t think that’s going to be the case here … with the shooters we have,” Paul said.  Golden State’s starters shot 22-65 (33.8%) from the field without Kevon Looney, making it a rough start for the team’s star player.

The performance

Paul’s stellar performance in the third quarter excited the Warriors and the crowd. But he still shot just 4-for-15 from the field and missed all six of his 3-point attempts.

Veteran shooting guard Klay Thompson continued his preseason struggles, shooting 6 of 18 and 3 of 11 from the field.

Even two-time MVP Stephen Curry wasn’t immune, shooting 4-of-14 from 3-point range (28.6 percent) despite scoring a team-high 27 points.  The Golden State Warriors hope to correct their shooting woes when they travel to Golden One Center to meet the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.
