If you’ve been watching the Eastern Conference playoffs, especially last night’s Game 1 in Cleveland, you may have noticed No. 20 from Orlando.
Is it me or does Mickael Pietrus look pretty good?
He has been money on the offensive end, especially from 3-point range, and he’s yet to make the unforced turnovers we saw so much when he was with the Warriors. You know what he looks like? The veteran off the bench the Warriors need. He shoots the three. He defends. He’s versatile.
To be sure, Pietrus is playing on one of the best teams in the league, so his strengths are magnified and weaknesses covered up. Plus, he was so focused on becoming a star here. Leaving the Warriors, not getting the money he wanted, seeing what it takes to win big in the NBA, I think that stuff humbled him.
Still, for Warriors fans, it has to be tough to watch another former Warrior shine.
