With Draymond Green back in the rotation and a four-game winning streak on the books, things seemed to be heading their way for the Golden State Warriors heading into Wednesday’s game against the Boston Celtics at the Chase Center in San Francisco.
However, that buzz stopped before halftime. In the second trimester, Steph Curry appeared to suffer an injury while battling for a fumble with Boston’s Marcus Smart.
Curry exited the game and was ruled out for the rest of the contest with soreness in his left foot.
no curry, Jordan Poole stepped forward. For the fifth consecutive competition, Poole scored over 20 points with 29 points on 10-of-20 shooting from the field and six 3-pointers from beyond the arc. Poole had three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 34 minutes.
Despite Poole’s explosive performance in the second half, the rest of the Warriors’ offense struggled against Boston’s stingy defense. Klay Thompson was the only other member of the Warriors to post double figures in scoring with 18 points.
Without Curry, the Warriors suffered a lopsided loss to the Celtics, 110-88.
Following Golden State’s loss to Boston, the NBA Twitter community chimed in with mixed reactions. Here’s a look at what fans and analysts had to say on Wednesday night.
