Post Game Thread: Warriors make it interesting, but can't overcome slow start against Spurs
Some days you're the bug, some days you're the windshield
The Golden State Warriors started off slow, losing the first quarter against the San Antonio Spurs by a score of 21-36. It was just one of those nights. Sloppy turnovers, missed shots; and the other team hitting everything.
That makes two of the last three games that the short-handed Warriors have dropped.
I try not to tell fans how to feel, but for me, I’m okay with this loss. Day game on the tail end of a back-to-back against a team that doesn’t seem likely to factor into any sort of post season rankings… You can’t win ‘em all.
The Warriors fought back from down 22 to take the lead late in the 4th.
Here’s the wild 4th quarter in a single image, check out the odds of who would win.
The game was within reach until a series of questionable whistles and missed free throws sealed the deal. Curry may be reaching a bit too hard for that three-point record. He ended up with 27 points on 28 shots (5 of 17 from deep).
The Warriors get a day off and then will have a chance to take out their frustrations on one of the worst teams in the league when the face the Orlando Magic on Monday.
As always, this is just a short fresh thread for our community. Dubnation HQ’s normal coverage will resume in the morning.
Tough one. But Klay Thompson will be back soon, Iguodala is nearing a return from the knee issue, and if nothing else, this game showed the punchy resilience of this Dubs squad.
