Stat shows Warriors changed offensive plan in win vs. Bulls


The Warriors under Steve Kerr are not going to be a team that calls high ball screen after high ball screen on a nightly basis.

That's just not going to happen, as it runs counter to Kerr's philosophy.

But there will be some games where the Warriors do deploy a lot of pick-and-rolls. And Monday night against the Chicago Bulls was one of them.

Steph Curry -- who returned from a five-game absence -- explained after Golden State's win that his mindset from the opening tip was to be aggressive. And some of that had to do with the opponent.

"Knowing how Chicago probably was gonna guard -- there was gonna be a lot more pick-and-rolls," the two-time NBA MVP said. "Me and James [Wiseman] and Draymond [Green] at the top trying to get our chemistry.

"That was a good set for us."

Yes, it was.

Andrew Wiggins also dished out two assists to Wiseman in pick-and-roll situations.

Did the 7-foot rookie know coming into the game he would be setting more on-ball screens?

"We worked on it in practice so I knew that it was going to happen," Wiseman told the media. "So I really got prepared for it. Screen hard, roll to the basket and get dunks and rebounds.

"There were a lot of opportunities."


We'll see if those opportunities carry over to the Warriors' next game Thursday at the Miami Heat.
