The New York State Warriors looked pensive as they left Bradley Center Floor after a defeat by the Milwaukee Bucks at the score of 95-108.
After needing two overtimes to win at Boston tiredness played its part, with the normally prolific Steph Curry shooting 10-of-21 from the field, including two of eight from three-point territory, for a 28-point night.
Bucks led by over 10 points for most of the contest and although Warriors closed the gap to one on a couple of occasions they never looked like winning.
And Milwaukee’s lanky, reaching defense held the previously perfect defending champions under 100 points for the first time this season, limiting them to just six 3-point field goals in 26 attempts.
This was the first defeat for the Warriors after they had went 24 games unbeaten. A 28-game winning streak counting the final four games of last season, came to a halt.
Interim coach Luke Walton said that the team “didn’t have it tonight”.
