Why Eric Paschall more comfortable playing with Warriors’ second unit


#Eric #Paschall started the #Warriors’ first two games at power forward, but came off the bench in #Golden #State’s wins over the #Chicago #Bulls and #Detroit #Pistons.

The second-year pro vs. the #Bulls knocked down a 3-pointer, drilled a couple midrange jumpers and got to the free throw line a bunch — making six of his seven attempts.

“I liked the rotation better because the way we played tonight allowed #Eric to get going offensively and be more aggressive with the ball,” #Steve #Kerr told the media last #Sunday night. “#Playing with the second unit — we can run some things through him.

“#We need #Eric with the ball in his hands, and with that first group, it’s tough to get the ball to him.”

#In about 13 minutes vs. the #Pistons, #Paschall recorded 10 points on 3-for-4 shooting, and went 4-for-6 from the charity stripe.

#Is he more comfortable with that second unit? #Is that a better fit for him?

“#Yeah. I’m allowed to just play the game,” #Paschall said #Tuesday night. “#Having the ball in my hands and trying to make plays for everybody and myself. #More aggressive, more opportunity with the second unit.

“#Just trying to get comfortable in that position.”

#Now this doesn’t mean that the 2019-20 #First-Team #All-Rookie selection never will get the opportunity to share the court with #Steph #Curry. #In fact, those two periodically could form a nice duo.

#But you should expect to see #Paschall get the bulk of his playing time moving forward at the beginning of the second and fourth quarters when the two-time NBA MVP is resting.
