Steph Curry and Jordan Poole have led the Warriors to a stunning 121-114 win over the Lakers at Staples Center on opening night.
Curry finished with a rare triple-double and his first since January 2016, putting up 21 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, albeit on poor 5-21 shooting. Poole was Golden State’s other most dangerous weapon, finishing the night with 20 points.
Here’s how NBA players and media reacted to the game:

my boldest season prediction is Steph & Klay will publicly initiate Jordan Poole into the Splash Brothers before the end of the year.

Jordan Poole has now caused two Lakers timeouts. That's real NBA significance.
