Steve Kerr unveiled how Jonathan Kuminga has impeccably ‘balanced out’ the team.

In recent weeks, the Golden State Warriors have been on an upward trend, performing significantly better than earlier in the season. They’ve secured three consecutive wins and emerged victorious in eight of their last ten games. Jonathan Kuminga’s standout performances have been pivotal in the team’s improved form, with his notable contribution highlighted by Steve Kerr in an interview with Kerith Burke of NBC Sports Bay Area, particularly following Kuminga’s impressive display in the recent victory over the Raptors.

“Jonathan Kuminga has truly transformed our team since we inserted him into the lineup and shifted to a smaller lineup with Draymond at the center,” stated Steve Kerr. “Kuminga’s knack for drawing fouls and driving to the paint, resulting in easy baskets, has significantly enhanced the balance of our team.”
