Draymond Green praises Jonathan Kuminga's recent impact over the Warriors' past two games




 

As the Golden State Warriors put together 137 points in a blowout win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, six members of Steve Kerr's rotation tallied double-figures in scoring. 

Draymond Green was one of those players, tallying 19 points on 6-of-7 shooting from the field to go along with 11 assists, four boards, and two blocks in 33 minutes. 

After the game, Green gave credit to one of Golden State's young players. Green praised Jonathan Kuminga's development and play over the last two games for the Warriors.

Against the Timberwolves, Kuminga recorded seven points on 3-of-5 shooting from the field with six boards, two blocks and an assist in 20 minutes off the bench in Golden State's 137-114 win.

The former No. 7 overall pick has finished with a positive in the plus/minus category of the box score in his last two games. 

Kuminga has registered 13 or more minutes off the bench during Golden State's recent three-game winning streak. During those games, Kuminga is averaging 4.3 points on 40% shooting from the field with 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 15.5 minutes per game. 

As he continues to earn more consistent minutes off the bench, Kerr will likely call on the 20-year-old forward on Tuesday for the Warriors' contest against the Dallas Mavericks.
