The Warriors’ Eric Paschall has a breakout game on his birthday

The Golden State Warriors opened a brand new stadium this season, and even though their team wasn’t as star-studded as the last few years, they were hopeful for the season. That soon changed, after the Warriors were plagued by injuries. In just a few weeks, Curry, Russell, Looney, Evans and Green were sidelined as well. And on top of that the Warriors were still without a win in their new Chase Center.

And so it came to be that the Warriors started yesterday’s game against the Portland Trailblazers with Glenn Robinson III, Willy Cauley-Stein, Ky Bowman, Jordan Poole and Eric Paschall. Poole was a 1st round pick this year, Paschall a 2nd round pick , and Bowman was even an undrafted addition to the team. But for Paschall, this game was his time to shine. On his 23rd birthday, and 7th game ever in the NBA, he scored 34 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. With his help, the Warriors got their first Chase Center win, 127-118.

And Paschall’s performance definitely didn’t go unnoticed. The crowd was so hyped up about his performance that Paschall even got MVP chants. As Paschall scored 20 points on Wednesday, 25 on Saturday and 34 on Monday, we’ll have to wait and see what he’ll be able to do in the next Warriors game.

Steph Curry, who was watching the game from home, was also quite impressed and showed that on Twitter.

But Paschall’s performance got a lot more great reactions from other players, and fans, on social media.
