Warriors cough up 29 turnovers and blow 14-point lead to Thunder in loss
The Golden State Warriors blew another chance to pull back to a .500 record, falling in overtime to the Oklahoma City Thunder 138-136. Stephen Curry led the way with 34 points, but it wasn’t enough as the Dubs blew yet ANOTHER double-digit lead. This time they turned the ball over 29 times, a high for the Steve Kerr-era.
Here’s Coach Steve Kerr’s pointed thoughts after that disaster:
Not only are those turnover numbers the highest of the Kerr-era, it’s actually a high for the Splash Bros era too. I crawled through the data to find every game since 2010 that the Warriors had at least 25 turnovers, and the results ain’t pretty.
11-21-2022, Warriors lose 128-83 to Pelicans after 26 turnovers
02-27-2020, Warriors lose to Lakers 116-86 after 26 turnovers
02-06-2018, Warriors lose to Thunder 125-105 after 25 turnovers
02-02-2018, Warriors win over Kings 119-104 after 25 turnovers
10-29-2017, Warriors lose to Pistons 115-107 after 25 turnovers
11-09-2014 Warriors lose to Suns 107-95 after 26 turnovers
11-08-2014 Warriors win over Rockets 98-87 after 26 turnovers
Hey at least they won a couple! Anyways, rough loss, but at least we get to watch the finale of the inaugural In-Season Tournament today as the Indiana Pacers take on the Los Angeles Lakers!
The Lakers eliminated the Dubs from the playoffs last year while the Pacers are an upstart team led by Tyrese Halliburton, who the Warriors infamously passed over in the 2020 draft.
