Warriors rookie Jordan Poole made his NBA G League debut with the Santa Cruz Warriors on Saturday night.
He was back in action Sunday night in Surf City, and delivered a strong performance despite the Sea Dubs' home loss to the Texas Legends.
Poole -- the No. 28 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft -- registered 31 points (11-for-23 overall, 5-for-10 3s), five rebounds, four assists and three steals.

It was somewhat awkward looking, but this isolation stepback 3 to his right shows you the kind of skill Jordan Poole possesses pic.twitter.com/tourRKK0Ef— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) December 30, 2019
Here’s another really nice pull-up triple from Jordan Poole off a high ball screen (D’Angelo Russell really liked it) pic.twitter.com/IEI6WyUm5E— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) December 30, 2019
He had the prettiest pass of the game, too.

Santa Cruz doesn't play again until Friday, so it's possible that Poole plays for Golden State on Tuesday and/or Thursday in San Antonio and Minnesota respectively.
"I give positive energy,” the Michigan product told NBC Sports Bay Area's Logan Murdock on Saturday. “I'm always smiling, having fun, no matter what the situation is, whatever it is, the outlook, I'm going to make the best of the situation.
"And through all, thick and thin, pain is only temporary. Everybody goes through this, so I'm going to continue to be myself more than anything."
