Dorell Wright Scores 24 In Win Over Clippers, But Coach Keith Smart Wants Him To Do More

Dorell Wright had a team hight 24 points last night in the win over the Los Angeles Clippers, with a very efficient 9 of 12 shooting.

But Coach Smart, reports Marcus Thompson, wants Wright to do more on the offensive end besides take open jumpers. Wright seems willing:

Smart said he wants Wright to do even more, including post-up and pass out of the post. Wright said he knows it’s in his game. It’s just a matter of dusting off the cob webs, since he hasn’t used other parts of his game in so long.

WRIGHT: “I’m very comfortable. … I’m loving it. I’m glad I’m not second-guessing myself like I used to. It’s not that I don’t have it, I’ve just got to remember how to do it. It’s been a long time.”

With that said, will Dorell Wright step in and play some point guard in Stephen Curry’s one game absence? If Wright can quickly shed off those cob webs of distributing and playmaking, this Warriors team will begin looking a lot better and more talented than it was last season.
