Post game: Time to find some new chairs to kick
Warriors sloppy, unfocused. Couldn't stop Hassan Whiteside of all people
The Golden State Warriors did not have a good time visiting Utah. The Jazz soundly thrashed the Warriors, ending their streak, and sending courtside chairs cowering from Stephen Curry’s fury all across the league.
No Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, or Draymond Green tonight, and of course no James Wiseman. That left the cupboard real bare against a Jazz team that employs noted dominant center, Hassan Whiteside.
But jokes aside, this was a tough loss. Blame elevation. Blame the short-handed roster. Or maybe pre-All Star break ennui. Whatever you want to pin it on though, expect to hear a lot of chatter about the team’s lack of a third string center. It would happen no matter what, but against the backdrop of a looming trade deadline, this loss may draw extra scrutiny. And sure, Whiteside with 15 rebounds and 7 blocks is going to be something folks talk about in the year 2022.
