Warriors' Juan Toscano-Anderson

Jordan Poole's NBA teammates haven't forgotten about him.

Juan Toscano-Anderson donned the Warriors youngster's jersey in warmups ahead of Golden State's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers at Chase Center on Monday night, all as Poole went off for the Santa Cruz Warriors in the NBA G League bubble just outside of Orlando, Fla.

Monday was Poole's fourth game in the bubble, and his best so far. Poole scored a team-high 32 points (on 8-of-14 shooting and 5-of-9 from behind the 3-point line), grabbed seven rebounds and dished out four assists in a 135-123 loss to Raptors 905.

So far, Poole's averaging 24.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game during his time in the bubble. Thanks to Monday's performance, Poole's shooting 42.9 percent from the field, 35.9 percent from behind the 3-point line and 100 percent from the free-throw line.

The Warriors sent Poole, 2019 second-round pick Alen Smailagic and 2020 second-round pick Nico Mannion to the bubble so each could get more playing time. Poole took advantage of his touches Monday, and Golden State is confident his time with Santa Cruz can help Poole carve a role with the Warriors this season and beyond.

In the meantime, Toscano-Anderson and his teammates are keeping tabs on Poole's performances.
