In an interview with Anthony Slater of The Athletic, Paschall said he's anticipating taking on a lesser role with Klay Thompson (knee) and Steph Curry (hand) expected back healthy. "I mean, I know I'm going to take a lesser role," Paschall said. "But I still feel I'm going to make an impact because I feel like I've proven myself. I feel like I'm ready to prove myself at the highest level." Paschall joined the Warriors as a rookie under unique circumstances, as the team found itself in the midst of a holding pattern following five straight trips to the NBA Finals. After Curry injured his hand early in the season, Golden State shifted toward a full-on youth movement, enabling Paschall to step into a larger role than anticipated. Across 60 games, Paschall averaged 14.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists while making 26 starts and playing nearly 28 minutes per game. With a healthy roster next season, the Villanova product is aware he'll likely take a backseat, but he said he'll be ready to contribute to what should be a much more competitive roster. "The spacing's going to be ridiculous," Paschall said of playing alongside Curry and Thompson. "I can't wait for that."
Paschall chipped in with 23 points (8-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-7 FT), six assists and three rebounds in 29 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 118-114 win over the Sixers. Steve Kerr moved Paschall to the bench six games ago, and the rookie out of Villanova has responded with strong performances -- he has topped the 15-point plateau in each one of those contests while averaging 5.2 assists and 4.2 rebounds during that stretch. He should remain one of the Warriors' main fantasy assets despite his bench role moving forward, especially if Draymond Green continues to miss action.
Paschall posted 22 points (8-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-8 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 35 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 116-100 win at Denver. Paschall has mostly played off the bench during the last few months and has been productive in a reserve role, but he seems to have taken a leap forward of late after topping the 20-point mark in three of his last four outings. Expect the rookie out of Villanova to remain as a vital scoring threat for the Warriors regardless of his role moving forward.
Paschall contributed 17 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds and six assists in 33 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 124-110 loss against the Wizards. Paschall remains productive despite the fact that he hasn't started on a regular basis since mid-December. He's now scored in double figures in seven consecutive games. The rookie out of Villanova has averaged 16.3 points per game while shooting 57.9 percent from the field during that stretch.
Paschall put up a game-high 25 points (10-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT) to go with four assists and three rebounds across 33 minutes Saturday in the Warriors' 115-99 win over the Suns. The Warriors were down to just eight active players Saturday, thrusting Paschall into an elevated role off the bench. He finished second only to Andrew Wiggins in shot attempts, with Paschall's efficient shooting from the field aiding him to a second straight 20-point performance. With as many as five players at risk of missing Sunday's game against the Wizards, Paschall could be in store for another high-usage outing in the second half of the back-to-back set.
