Warriors fumble away another win in loss to Nets at home
Kyrie loves to win on our court, eh?
The Golden State Warriors collapsed down the stretch in a 120-116 loss to the Brooklyn Nets. This stunning home loss means the Dubs were swept by the Nets, which is even more ridiculous since Brooklyn didn’t have their best player Kevin Durant last night.
Even though this loss came a regular season contest that doesn’t necessarily have a direct outcome on the title hopes of the season, it points to the maddening trend of the Dubs struggling to close out opponents in the fourth quarter. We saw it most recently in the loss to Boston when the team squandered a late lead and went into overtime.
Stephen Curry in particular had a rough fourth quarter, going 0-for-4 in the final frame as his team was outscored 34-26. This shot in particular from him late in the contest encapsulated the kind of possessions that makes Dub Nation’s chest tight nowadays with the game on the line.
Okay DNHQ, we’re over the halfway point of January and the team can’t quite get above .500 consistently. What is the BIGGEST change you wanna see going forward, or do you feel like the team is doing fine and just needs more time to connect?
