Thunder stun Warriors 130-123 despite Wiggins returning to form
Are the Dubs wasting Andrew Wiggins' prime??
The Golden State Warriors lost a barnburner of a game last night, falling in overtime 130-123 at home in Chase Center. This is the sixth straight game the Dubs have dropped, and they have fallen to 1-6 home which is COMPLETELY UNCONSCIONABLE IN THE SPLASH BROS ERA.
This game seemed like a classic Dubs win. The Warriors were up 18, Klay Thompson was hitting shots, and Andrew Wiggins was looking like an All-Star, Stephen Curry was hitting no-look three-pointers.
And yes, everybody who was begging for a Wiggins Island sighting finally got it. 31 points on 12-of-19 shooting from the field, with 5-of-8 shooting from beyond the arc is a pretty good night.
But the Warriors blew that lead, leading to an exchange of big-time three-pointers from both teams that ultimately took the Chase Center faithful from the biggest high to a sickening low in a matter of seconds.
The Dubs would eventually falter in overtime as the combined greatness of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (40 points) and Chet Holmgren (36 points) overwhelmed the home team.
Remember last season when the Dubs couldn’t buy a win on the road but were dominant at home? That script has completely flipped. This team is struggling to defend home court, which is disconcerting to say the least.
Also, the Thunder ARE PRETTY DAMN GOOD.
Okay Dub Nation, what are your day after thoughts after this painful L?
