12 consecutive wins are over!
Thunder 138-136 Warriors (overtime)
The two sides have faced each other 4 times before 2024, with the Thunder winning 3-1. Except for winning the Thunder on November 4 with Curry's comeback, he has lost all three games against the Thunder recently.
Today's match is very similar to a trilogy between the two sides...
The Warriors still led by nine points in the first quarter
The Warriors also led by six points in the first half.
The Warriors collapsed in the third quarter and lost by 11 points in a single quarter, once upon a time the Yongsan Crazy was the exclusive moment of the Warriors' peak, and in the past two years, it has become the Yongsan.
The best game between the two sides should be the fourth quarter, and the Warriors have a sense of design to bring the young Podemski and Kuminga to the Thunder's young lineup.
Previously, the Warriors' veteran lineup only scored 2 points in the first three quarters, and the Warriors used a young lineup to fight against the Thunder on the fast break, and the team not only recovered the trailing point difference, but also entered a timeout with a lead in the final 6:05.
Since then, the two sides have reverted to the starter PK, the Warriors mean that our old team is not as physical as you, if the young players bite and fight for the last 5 minutes, the meritorious basketball can defeat you by experience.
Curry's three-pointer, Klay's mid-range shot, the Warriors still led by 3 points before the final 14 seconds...
Cole's calculations almost succeeded.
But the same script came again, Holmgren got the three points that the Thunder tied the score, but the two sides had a three-point whistle in the last overtime, and this time it was Green's three-point foul...
Green wanted to anticipate the steal and then he lost his position and paid for his prediction...
So the question is, is it necessary to foul this ball?
As the game dragged into overtime, the balance of victory was already tilting in their favor.
The Thunder don't even need to shoot three-pointers, and the cards are open to the inside in overtime.
Jalen Williams scored 28 points on 12-of-15 shooting and just one three-point attempt.
Holmgren had 21 points and 7 rebounds, and his state in the first three quarters was average, and he didn't start to exert his strength until the fourth quarter to prove that young people have no limits to their physical strength.
Alexander, the big man in the team, was invisible in the first quarter, and in the end, he couldn't stop his 38-point shot in the face, and he also scored 0 points and three points in the game.
Speaking of Green, he scored 8 points and 8 assists in the first half, after the Warriors won all 12 games in the Warriors' career with 8 points and 8 assists in the half, and the Warriors won all 12 games, ending their winning streak today.
This seems very metaphysical, in fact, it makes some sense, for so many years the Warriors' central axis has played Green at the top of the circle, and his ability to score proves that he felt good on the night, and he can assist, which proves that the whole system is working well tonight.
However, this system has proven to be no longer a symbol of winning in the past two years, on the one hand, the players are aging and inconsistent, and although they scored more points and assists today, 29 turnovers (a new high in the Kerr era) allowed opponents to create 35 points.
On the other hand, it is still physical, although the Warriors are offensive on the offensive meritorious basketball trio are online:
Klay finished 8-of-15 from the field with 22 points and four rebounds, almost playing the most efficient game of the season.
Dream Chaser had 12 points, 5 rebounds and 13 assists.
Curry made 3-of-10 shots, but then corrected his crosshairs and scored 34 points on 10-of-20 shooting.
The physical disadvantage made it almost impossible for them to juggle offense and defense at the same time, and the offense looked good tonight, but the defense couldn't stop the impact of the Thunder's young stars. (Before Curry had time to get up for the basket, the Thunder 5 had already fallen into the Warriors half)
Before today's game, Kerr said that the recent starting efficiency has not been good, and he is now unsure whether it is because of coordination problems or aging, and is considering changing the lineup in these games.
In the end, Kerr didn't start the game, but substitute Paul was out unwell.
In the actual game, Looney played 16 minutes and didn't play much, Kuminga took over 29 minutes and played well to get 24 points and 12 rebounds, and scored 6 points in overtime, and the entire overtime was almost for him and Curry to survive.
On the other hand, Podzemski was also reused more in the second half, and he also got more minutes than Joseph, and Cole replaced Wiggins at the end of overtime to let Boger play with the splash.
That is to say, the formation is moving, but there is no movement of meritorious members, or it revolves around the rotation of Joseph, Wiggins, and Looney...
Whether the Warriors should be replaced and completely reuse young players is no longer a problem in the past few games, and the Warriors do not have a bonus contract except for Kuminga, and if they want to enhance their young strength, they can only add draft picks to use veterans.
Maybe the answer may end up being Paul (expiring contract), but of course, in terms of the team's season performance has been replaced, Klay and Green are the two who should be sent away.
But the question is, will the Warriors dare to move?
