The reigning NBA Champions fought back in the fourth quarter against a hungry Milwaukee Bucks team, but fell short.
Golden State Warriors loss against the Bucks 108-95, ending the second highest winning streak in NBA history at 28. The loss not only stinged the players, but the coaches as well.
Losing still sucks,” said Warriors’ interim coach Luke Walton according to UPI. “But what they did to start the season, there’s no reason for anyone to hang their heads in that locker room for losing that game.
Warriors got themselves in a game where they won in second overtime against the Boston Celtics and were completely exhausted the next day. They started out the game flat and continue to fight throughout the game. The closest they got was at 1 in the 3rd quarter. Stephen Curry did have a solid game with 28 points on 10 of 21 shooting. But Klay Thompson struggled along with other players that didn’t have the energy to keep up with the Bucks.
It’s disappointing,” Thompson said. “I think we beat ourselves, especially on my end. I didn’t play well or shoot well at all so it’s very disappointing.
Warriors now have their next match-up at home against the Phoenix Suns to start another winning streak off a historic start.
