The Golden State Warriors are starting to turn their season around.
After a slow start to the season, the Warriors have improved their record to 20-18 over the past few weeks.
They have won five straight games, and sit only two games out of fourth place in the conference.
Star guard Stephen Curry has not played since December 14th, so the rest of the team knew they needed to pick up the slack.
Poole has been the teams leading scorer since Curry went out.
But, Thompson is not far behind, especially after his 54-point game on Monday.
All three of these star players have a chance to make history this season.
That is three guards on the same team averaging 20+ points per game for a season.
Steph is averaging 30 PPG
Poole is averaging 20.5 PPG
Klay is averaging 20.3 PPG

Curry and Thompson have been dominating the league for years.
But, it is the play of Poole that has helped return the Warriors to their championship ways.
In games he has started this season, Poole is averaging 26.9 points per game.
He has been a high-usage player for Golden State and will continue to be relied on until Curry returns.
On the other hand, Poole is averaging only 14.1 points per game off the bench this season.
He will most likely return to the bench when Curry returns, but he needs to be more productive.
With how explosive the Warriors’ offense can be, there is no reason to believe all three guards can not average 20+ PPG.
Thompson is continuing to return to his all-star self and Curry is arguably the best player in the league.
These three guards will continue to be the focal point of the Golden State offense.
