During the Golden State Warriors preseason opener against the Washington Wizards in Japan, it was the James Wiseman show. The third-year center led the Warriors to a victory with 20 points in 24 minutes off the bench in an impressive performance.
On Saturday, Wiseman and the Warriors were back on the floor against the Wizards at Saitama Super Arena in Japan. In his second preseason game, Wiseman tallied eight points on 2-of-7 shooting from the floor with three boards and a block in 18 minutes against the Wizards.
In the second quarter, Wiseman had the opportunity to show off his jumper. With 8:53 remaining in the first half, JaMychal Green swung a pass to an open Wiseman on the wing. Producing his best Splash Brothers impression, the 7-footer buried the open jumper from beyond the arc.
