The Golden State Warriors held two lottery picks in the 2022 NBA Draft, and with the second one at No. 14 they selected Moses Moody. The wing from Arkansas has found his rhythm late this season, but he’s arriving at the perfect time.

The only trouble he has had during the back end of this season is a shoulder injury he endured against the Boston Celtics. It was the same game Stephen Curry got hurt.

Before the Warriors played the Orlando Magic on Tuesday, Steve Kerr talked about what Moody brings to the team.

“He makes the right play constantly,” Kerr told ClutchPoints. “He recognizes situations, and for a young guy to do that, it’s a great sign because he’ll only get better with all that as he plays more and more NBA games and sees the patterns that are coming his way. Then within that, he’s a big strong wing, with a huge wingspan, and shoots the ball really well, so he fits the modern game really well.”

Moody only played five minutes in Tuesday’s ugly loss to the Magic in his return from that shoulder injury. But in his nine games before facing Orlando, he averaged 8.8 points in 19.3 minutes while shooting 57.1 percent from the field and 46.4 from deep.

The 19-year-old rookie earned his way into the rotation with consistency and hard work. Moody kept a positive attitude even when he couldn’t get an opportunity to play earlier this year. Now, during the final weeks of the season, Kerr and Moody’s teammates need him during a very important time.

The Dubs currently control the third seed in the Western Conference, but with Stephen Curry out, it will be extremely hard to keep that spot as this team struggles without him. The good news is Moody could be the support the Warriors need to overcome this difficult time.
