Jordan Poole has funny quote about half-court buzzer beater
Golden State Warriors guard Jordan Poole offered an amusing comment about his big buzzer beater on Sunday night.
Poole scored 17 points in his Warriors’ 107-88 Game 2 win over the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. He had a buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter and delivered a funny comment.
“I want the ball at all of the end of the quarters and the shot clocks,” Poole said. “I have endless range, I guess.”
"I have endless range, I guess" 🤣

After a slow first half, Poole turned it on in the third quarter. He hit two deep 3-point shots, including the buzzer from near half-court. The shot ended a 35-14 quarter that gave the Warriors a 23-point lead.
Poole’s range is similar to that of Steph Curry, who has hit deep 3-pointers regularly throughout his career. According to Curry, he and Poole have an ongoing half-court competition in practice.
Steph Curry said him and Jordan Poole shoot halfcourt shots every practice and they have a competition going:
“If you make one during the game we count it, so he took the lead tonight.”
