The Golden State Warriors didn’t have the best Christmas this year. They were handed their second defeat of the season by Bucks in a 40+ point blowout game. The only positive thing about the Dubs was the #2 overall pick James Wiseman having a good game.
Apart from Wiseman, the whole team struggled to get going. In fact, no player even crossed the 20 point mark in the entire game. Although the Warriors are coming off of an abysmal 2019-20 season, they were expected to have a redeem season.
Unfortunately, things are not looking bright for them. Their leader and best player, Steph Curry continued his poor form of Christmas games as he shot 2/10 from the field. Due to this mega collapse, the Bucks racked up an amazing victory on Christmas day.
After a close season opener, the Bucks now have win number 1 for this season. 2-time All-Star Khris Middleton spearheaded the victory for them scoring game-high 31 points.
Twitter Reacts to Warriors vs Bucks matchup
Following the 99-138 defeat, Warriors fans were infuriated on Twitter. While most were guessing it might take some time for the team to get in chemistry, no one foresaw a defeat of this magnitude. As a result, the team received a lot of slack from fans all around the world.
Kelly Oubre Jr. and Andrew Wiggins need to step up their games. The two of them are expected to be their most reliable scorers in the absence of Klay Thompson. But so far they’re looking completely out of sync. But they do have plenty of time to become the supporting players the organization needs them to be.
Should the Golden State Warriors be worried?
The season has just started, but so far the Dubs are looking like a bad team. In fact, they are showing shades of their terrible 2019-20 NBA season. For the next few games, they do not have their defensive anchor Draymond Green on the floor. His absence is another problem for head coach Steve Kerr.
As things stand for now, the organization should definitely be worried about their season. But what are your thoughts on the Warriors so far? Let us know in the comments section down below.
