Moses Moody impresses in Warriors’ final California Classic game

Moses Moody impresses in Warriors’ final California Classic game

SAN FRANCISCO — Moses Moody has a championship ring at the ripe age of 20, but he has plenty of room to grow as his responsibilities may expand next season.

He’s shown a knack for playmaking and ball handling in his first two Summer League games, including in a strong first half of the Warriors’ 94-79 loss to the Miami Heat to close out the California Classic on Tuesday afternoon in a fan-less Chase Center. The Warriors lost all three of their California Classic games.

Moody rocked a Band-Aid over his left eye, there to protect the two stitches he got from getting slashed in the face during Sunday’s game. Bruised up, Moody scored 13 points on 5-of-15 shooting with a 3-pointer on seven attempts. His three assists don’t do justice his ability to make plays for his teammates.

He shined most in the first quarter, gliding past Miami’s defenders to the rim. He showed his strength and length in back-to-back possessions, first fighting through foul contact for a bucket and, minutes later, he split two defenders for a breezy lay-up.

Don’t expect Moody to have primary ball-handing skills during the regular season, but any aptitude he shows there should expand his role. Getting the ball in Moody’s hands was a goal during his G League stint last year, Seth Cooper, the California Classic and Santa Cruz Warriors head coach said.

“It’s something he’s going to keep getting better at,” Cooper said. “He made a lot of really good plays.”

Moody’s ability to use his size length to get to the rim paired with his 3-point shooting threat opens up angles that keep defenses honest and “opens things up a little bit easier than some smaller guards who can’t see over the top,” he said.

Moody was disruptive on defense, too. On one play, he got his hands on a pass to Miami’s back-door cutter and found Gui Santos in transition, who sought out a re-locating Moody in the corner for a 3-pointer. A defensive and offensive sequence that was signature Warriors basketball.
