When you say instant offense and Warriors, obviously Steph Curry is the first name that pops in your head. Then maybe Klay Thompson. But Mo Speights needs mo love when talking about instant O.
Last week, we were raving about how he scored in double figures 5 times in the past month while playing less than 17 minutes. On Saturday night, Mo racked up 25 points in just 18 minutes during the Warriors comeback win against the Suns. The 25 in 18 or fewer minutes was tied for the 2nd most by a player in the past 30 seasons.

“He loves when he plays well, and the crowd loves it when he plays well,” said Stephen Curry. “Mo brings that energy, and it’s contagious. He’s fun to watch.”
“I really can’t explain it: There’s just this feeling that goes through my body every time I get a bucket,” Speights said. “We made sure we weren’t going to lose at home. And the energy helped.”
