postgame depression thread: Curry goes off for 50, but it's not enough
Warriors drop 9 straight on the road after tonight's loss to the Clippers
I’m just tired, man.
The Golden State Warriors lost tonight to the Los Angeles Clippers by a score of 126 - 134. The offense was on. Led by yet another magical performance by mega GOAT Steph Curry, the Warriors were within striking distance as the game wound down to a close. But a couple of bad possessions on both ends late, and not even the great one could drag this team to a road win.
On the one hand, Curry turned in yet another memory. If you’ve been around long enough, you’ll remember his firsts triple double. A meaningless game for a team that wasn’t going anywhere, but a beefy rookie performance that heralded an amazing career. So… great. I guess I’ll have a bowl of history for a snack to try and correct my mood right now.
The bad news is plentiful.
Andre Iguodala has a broken wrist and will undergo surgery. There’s no official timeline on his return, but given how long it took him to recover from dunking a basketball the last time he was out, it feels pretty safe to say that it definitely will end Iguodala’s regular season, and very possibly, his entire career.
Draymond Green picked up another technical foul tonight. It was a stupid call, but like the suspension in the Finals, it wouldn’t have been possible if Green hadn’t been waging such a consistent campaign all season to put himself in the position.
Golden State has one day off before facing their demons on the road in Atlanta on Friday. I’m sure it will be a great time out.
Steph is listed as questionable for the Hawks with left thumb soreness.
We needed the other players to step up last night. I wonder if when Steph goes supernova, everybody else just kinda relaxes and thinks that Steph will save and win them the game. Steph provided the offense but the defense just broke down. And I can’t understand why Kerr was all praises for how the guys played. I admire Kerr’s cool and intelligent demeanor but sometimes I wish he would get clipboard like mad and light a fire under this team. Steph was really somber in his postgame interview and actually said it was a frustrating game. It was a privilege and entertaining to have watched another awesome game from Steph but, in the end, it was a sad footnote in the loss. And we really need a big. Kerr’s small ball style needs some changes inorder for this team to keep up with the other teams.
