Snoop Dogg’s bizarre prediction on Lakers vs Warriors comes true: “Jordan Poole keep shooting”

Rapper Snoop Dogg made a spot-on prediction about the ending of the LA Lakers’ Game 1 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday. During an appearance on ESPN’s “First Take,” the LA native predicted that the Lakers would double-team Warriors superstar Steph Curry and leave their other players open. He specifically mentioned Jordan Poole, saying, “Keep shooting. I like the way you’ve been missing brother.”

As it turned out, the Lakers did just that on the final possession of the game. With the Warriors down three points and only seconds left on the clock, Curry was double-teamed by Austin Reaves and Jarred Vanderbilt, leaving Poole open on the left wing. Poole attempted a 28-foot shot that missed, and the Lakers secured the victory.

Snoop Dogg’s prediction quickly went viral on social media, with fans amazed by his accuracy. However, it’s worth noting that Poole had a strong overall performance in the game, despite missing the final shot. He shot 46.7% from the field, including 60% from beyond the arc, and scored 21 points off the bench.

Despite Poole’s impressive showing, the Lakers were able to come away with a hard-fought win, thanks in part to the efforts of Dennis Schroder. Schroder hit two crucial free throws in the final seconds to seal the victory and give the Lakers a 1-0 lead in the series.

Snoop Dogg’s prediction may have been the talk of social media, but Lakers fans are surely more focused on the team’s chances in the rest of the series. With LeBron James and Anthony Davis leading the way, the Lakers will be looking to continue their playoff run and defend their championship title. As for the Warriors, they’ll need to regroup quickly if they hope to pull off an upset and advance to the next round.

The Rise of Jordan Poole: Golden State’s Promising Sixth Man Shines Bright in Game 1 Despite Late Miss

In Game 1 against the LA Lakers, Jordan Poole was the Warriors’ top scorer off the bench, contributing 21 points on 7-of-15 shooting, including 6-of-11 from beyond the arc. While the final shot he took was ill-advised, Warriors forward Draymond Green defended his teammate, saying he liked the shot and that Poole had been efficient throughout the game.

“Quite frankly, I like the shot. Jordan can shoot the ball, and he got a good look at it,” Green said on his podcast. “Prior to that three, he was 6-for-10. You got a guy 6-for-10 that you know can shoot the piss out of a ball, and you get an open three, you live with it.”

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr also supported Poole, saying that I loved Jordan’s game last night, I loved his approach,” Kerr said. “He’s pretty mentally tough, Jordan is a guy who is a little bit of a lightning rod. A lot of people are judging him on a daily basis and it’s not easy as a young player, a young person to have that type of scrutiny with your every move. The way he responded last night, knocking down shots, competing, boxing out, fighting over screens.”

Stephen Curry also voiced his support for Poole after the game, saying that “A lot of trust in his ability to put the ball in the basket.” Curry said.

Despite the loss, Poole’s performance in Game 1 was a positive sign for the Warriors. With Klay Thompson still working his way back from injury, Golden State will need Poole to continue providing a spark off the bench if they hope to advance in the playoffs. The team will have a chance to even the series in Game 2 on Thursday night.
