The Golden State Warriors got exactly who they wanted at the No. 7 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, they selected the teenager Jonathan Kuminga. The 6 foot 8 forward has shown glimpses of greatness, and he's had some down moments this season too, but that's all a part of being a rookie. One of the great things about the high-flying first-year player is he responds to adversity the right way.

The scouting report during the draft said the only knock on Kuminga's game was his shooting ability, instead of being salty about it, the future star went straight to work. After going 4-of-4 from three against the Dallas Mavericks he talked about his shot and how it felt.

“It felt great. I have been working on my shot since I got drafted here,” the Warriors youngster told ClutchPoints. “The way that we play the ball moves. The people that we have on the floor are always going to drive to get in and kick out. You're always going to get wide-open looks.”

The young talented prospect put together a great game against the Mavs, he finished with a team-high 22 points off of the bench. It was Kuminga’s third game with 20-or-more points and his four 3-pointers matched a career-high. The Warriors went on to win that game in dominating fashion, the final score was 130-92.

The win snapped the Warriors' four-game home losing streak to the Mavericks. Golden State and Dallas’ 2021-22 season series stands at one win each. Their record improved to 35-13, and they are looking forward to adding another win Thursday night against the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves.
