Warriors' Jordan Poole Faces Criticism for 'Failing' Play in Loss to Hawks
Jordan Poole has been facing criticism for his performance in the Warriors' loss to the Hawks.
The Warriors have been struggling for consistency throughout the season, especially on the road.
Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area called out Jordan Poole for failing to step up when the team needed him the most.
Poole's poor performance in the game was seen as a missed opportunity for him to prove his worth to the team.
Poole's performance was lacking, with two turnovers, two missed shots, and poor transition defense in the first quarter.
Poole's poor performance contributed to the Warriors being outscored 23-8 during the six-minute span he was on the court.
Poole's final stats for the game were 12 points, two rebounds, and four assists on 4-of-12 shooting from the field and 2-of-8 shooting from behind the three-point line.
The criticism of Poole is based on his immense promise and potential, which he has yet to fully live up to.
Poole will need to improve his performance in future games if he wants to silence his critics and help the Warriors turn their season around.
