Warriors two-way guard Ky Bowman made his G League debut Friday night in Santa Cruz.
He dominated the Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario.
Ky Bowman’s G League debut with the Santa Cruz Warriors = 27 points (10-for-16 FG, 4-for-7 3s), 10 assists, 8 rebounds, 2 steals, 4 turnovers, Sea Dubs win 130-114 pic.twitter.com/iFHet5NsY4— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) December 14, 2019
The Boston College product could have scored 40 points if he really wanted to, but he picked his spots and made sure his teammates were getting good looks.
Ky Bowman fights around the big man posting up and gets the steal, and then delivers the pass at the perfect time for the transition 3 (plus I love the subtle push of Smailagic. Ha) pic.twitter.com/0nHRf7aaij— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) December 14, 2019
Ky Bowman is a one-man pressbreak as he goes through three defenders, then attacks to draw the helpside defender = open corner 3 pic.twitter.com/uX3MY1smg9— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) December 14, 2019
After shootaround in Utah on Friday, Warriors coach Steve Kerr was asked what Bowman can work on while he's with the Sea Dubs.
"He's got a really aggressive mindset -- which I like -- but there are still circumstances and situations where he needs to think more pass," Kerr said. "And more strategic, rather than just score, score, score."
Bowman clearly listened to the eight-time NBA champion.
Also, "Sky Bowman" was on full display.
The 22-year-old will be back in action Sunday afternoon as Santa Cruz faces the Northern Arizona Suns. Watch the game at 2:00 p.m. on NBC Sports Bay Area.
