Warriors rookie Jonathan Kuminga sends layup of James Harden away with emphatic block

Over the last two games of the Golden State Warriors, rookie Jonathan Kuminga has quietly taken on a bigger role in Steve Kerr’s rotation.

In Golden State’s past two games against the Chicago Bulls and Charlotte Hornets, the No. 7 overall roster has averaged 7.7 points on 66.7% shooting from the field with three rebounds and a steal per game. Kuminga has scored 10 or more minutes in each of the last two games.

During the Warriors primetime matchup against Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday, Kuminga checked into the game at the end of the first quarter and didn’t wait long to impress.

As Brooklyn’s James Harden rode on the track, Kuminga got up to meet him on the rim for an emphatic block. After Kuminga sent Harden away, the Warriors managed to get the ball back and push it into the field.
