Warriors show susceptibility to being blown out

The new-look Golden State Warriors were blown out by the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday. The loss marked another example of the team struggling to adjust to a less traditional roster.

The young Lakers were able to take the wire-to-wire victory and held Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson to a combined 2-for-20 from behind the 3-point line. Curry missed all 10 of his attempts, ending his streak of games with at least one 3-pointer at 157.

“You don’t like the feeling at all,” Curry said after the 117-97 loss. “But you’ve got to wrap your head around where you are in the season, and the good we’ve shown early in the year, but also focus on the things we need to work on. Regardless of a game like [against the Thunder on Thursday] or [Friday’s loss], we still have some things we need to work on.”

The loss marks the Dubs’ second of the season, both of which were with a margin of at least 20. That seems bad but five of the team’s nine losses last season were by at least 10 points.

Golden State, playing on the second night of a back-to-back that featured an emotionally taxing contest against Kevin Durant’s old team on Thursday, looked flat on the defensive end. The Warriors lost the battle on the boards and blocked just three shots a night after sending Oklahoma City Thunder 14 attempts back.

Golden State returns home for a contest against the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday.
