Warriors' Thompson calls loss to Suns worst of season

  • Warriors Steve Kerr Draymond Green

The moment came with just over a minute left in the team's loss to the Pheonix Suns at home.

Oubre had 22 points, Deandre Ayton 18 to go with nine rebounds, and Bridges and Tyler Johnson 10 points apiece for the Suns, who had lost the first three meetings with the Warriors this season by a total of 53 points. National Basketball Association favorites of 17 points or more had gone 85-1 in the last 20 seasons, according to ESPN. The defending champions weren't blown out like they were a few nights ago when the Boston Celtics beat them by 33 points, but the team failed to secure what had been viewed as nearly a guaranteed win.

And yet here we are.

Turbulence injures 30 on flight from Istanbul to NY
Another passenger Sead Nikaj, told the network "nobody announced it or anything like that so we figured out something was wrong". Officials say 30 people suffered bumps, bruises, cuts and a broken leg before the flight landed safely at New York's John F.

The Golden State Warriors suffered a double whammy after succumbing to the Phoenix Suns, 111-115, and seeing Kevin Durant go down with an injury on Sunday, March 10 (Monday, March 11, Philippine time). They held their last four opponents to 109.3 points per game and will need to keep playing well to keep themselves in this game.

The Golden State Warriors can obviously win this game by 50 if they really wanted to, but these Warriors are so up and down when it comes to the intensity they play with. "And we've been playing a lot of basketball for five years now so you're not going to be flawless for 82 games - we've had too many missteps but at the end of the day, that's the first time we've lost to that team in 19 games So it's ugly but".

What the core of this Phoenix Suns roster needs more than just additional talent (on the roster), is a belief that they, themselves, actually have the talent already to compete. But they must know that if the right players are brought in, and that talent meshes with the existing (and remaining) talent, then maybe they can compete for a playoff spot as early as next year. "You can't bring it every night, but still it helps". The Suns defeated Golden State for the first time since a 107-95 victory on November 9, 2014, and earned their first road win in 20 tries against the Western Conference this season. It's an uncomfortable feeling, which I think we like right now.
