As part of the Golden State Warriors’ plan for Game 2 — “How about we just don’t miss any shots?” — Harrison Barnes took over for a while in the fourth quarter, putting up 10 points in the period.
A couple of those came on dramatic dunks. Like the one above, which is an impressive, athletic reverse throwdown over Anthony Randolph.
Barnes is making big steps forward, it felt like he was making the leap on Tuesday night. Barnes is going to be a key cog in the Warriors offense in a couple of years.
By the way, the Warriors’ strategy worked, they won 131-117, evening the series at a game a piece.
