Post game hand-wringing thread: Warriors blow it again
16-point lead not enough, Magic roar back, Dubs can't stop fouling
The Golden State Warriors took a 12 point lead into halftime, and we even up 90-75 with around 4 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. But then the lowly Orlando Magic rose up to finish out the game on a 40-18 run, earning their second win of the season, and handing the Warriors another loss.
Pain. The road trip is now 0-4, with the tail end of a back-to-back coming up for the Warriors tomorrow.
On the bright side, Stephen Curry looked great again. Klay Thompson found his shot, and Kevon Looney was aggressive on his way to a new career regular season high scoring mark.
Golden State couldn’t defend without fouling. The Magic ended the night with a 46 to 15 advantage at the charity stripe, and it felt mostly fair. The Warriors can’t stop point of attack, and then they can’t contest well at the rim without fouling.
Feel free to freak all the way out. Even being this early in the season, there are a ton of problems to address - and they all feel pretty darn urgent.
