Post Game: that sucked, let's overreact!
Dubs laid a stinker, still on top of the NBA. Still getting Klay back
Some days you’re the bug, some days you’re the windshield. The latter was true tonight as the Golden State Warriors finally met a night from Stephen Curry that was too cold to overcome.
This is a safe space. Let it all out so we can heal.
As it has been for most of this season, it was the Warriors’ offense that was the problem.
The Warriors' defense has given them a chance to win every game, their offense has lost them eight of the 37. Final team stats tonight: 82 points, 17 turnovers, 40% shooting, 5/28 on 3s. Record: 29-8
The game was within reach up through the final minutes, but between turnovers and missed shots, Golden State let this one slip out of their grasp like that one dude at the party that fell asleep spilling his beer on the couch.
No time to lick their wounds, the Warriors will fly to New Orleans tonight and will be back in action tomorrow with a 4pm game against the Pelicans.
I can't imagine Steph playing tomorrow night. It's a perfect time for some rest especially for the return of Klay. We need the Splash Bros bright and shiny for Cleveland. Let Chiozza run the offense for the last time this season and give plenty of minutes to Q who actually might surprise a lot of folks. Send Kuminga and Moody back to Santa Cruz for the opening game of 2022. The both need the reps down there.
Don't have anything much to say, other than watching last night felt legitimately painful. These games will happen. But I hope Steph finds his mojo sooner than later.
Trying not to invest too much in Klay playing on Saturday, we'll see if he does and how it goes.
On to the next...
