This was actually a great game, but if the Warriors want to become the team they were back in the time they need to invest in young talent again as they did with Steph. Avidja is a great prospect for the future and in the hands of Kerr, he could do miracles. I was reading here https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/295123 about his great start with the Wizards while they drafted him as the first Israelian player in the NBA and wondered what could the future hold for him. I'm really keen on his handling and FG percentages so far.
