Omri Casspi got a taste of a frenzied Golden State Warriors home crowd at Oracle Arena, seizing the opportunity to see some minutes on the floor due to the absence of starter Kevin Durant. The Israeli international enjoyed a season-best all-around the board, tallying 13 points, three rebounds, two steals, an assist, and a career-high three blocks in a 20-minute outing. A nifty cutter and witty opportunist, Casspi dazzled with his play late in the fourth quarter, including a three-point play that saw him get showered with love from Warriors faithful chanting MVP through his great run. “I went to KD at the end in the locker room, I said ‘KD you’re holding me back, bro. They called every bit for me, man,'” Casspi said jokingly after a 125-101 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. “It was just funny.”
