JP calls out detractors after Warriors' big win over Sixers


Jordan Poole has all of the receipts. 

Speaking with Bonta Hill, Chris Mullin and Festus Ezeli on "Warriors Postgame Live," Poole explained how his performance in the Warriors' 120-112 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday at Chase Center should not be surprising to those detractors on NBA Twitter.

"It's definitely playoff JP but what's crazy is that you all know that," Poole said to Hill, Mullin and Ezeli. "You guys know that. So I don't want to hear anything else -- all of that extra slander that you all be talking about.

"You all know what it is."

In the first three quarters Friday night, the 23-year-old scored 14 points on 4-of-10 shooting from the field and 4 of 8 from 3-point land. Once the fourth quarter started, it seemed like another version of Poole was unleashed. 

He scored 19 points in the final 12 minutes, going 6-of-9 from the field and 2 of 3 from beyond the arc, finishing with 33 points in 32 minutes off the bench. Poole outscored all players not named Joel Embiid (46 points).

Poole also was active on the defensive end, shutting down many of the 76ers ballhandlers when it mattered the most and getting Philadelphia's guards off their game.

With Steph Curry teaching the budding star how to properly deal with his inconsistencies, it appears to be a matter of time before Poole plays up to the Warriors' expectations. 

And while Poole is rounding into form, he certainly will keep the receipts of NBA Twitter in mind.
