Warriors vs. Grizzlies: Jordan Poole's enhanced playmaking proves vital after Draymond Green's Game 1 ejection
When you score 27 points or more in four of the first six playoff games of your career, you're understandably going to draw some attention.

Poole was held to just 19 total points in the final two games of the Warriors' first-round series against the Denver Nuggets
He scored 17 points in the second half, when he buoyed the offensive attack with Draymond Green in the locker room after controversially being ejected for a Flagrant 2 foul.
