“Losing sucks no matter what the reason is, losing is a terrible feeling” – Steph Curry addresses Golden State Warriors’ shortcomings following brutal loss
Steph addresses the Dubs’ inability to consistently string together complete games. They blow a 17-point lead at home to a Nets team without Kevin Durant. They were up 12 with under six minutes left.
It was the third consecutive game that the defending NBA champs surrendered a significant lead on the way to a loss.
“Losing sucks no matter what the reason is, losing is a terrible feeling and we hate it. Being 23-24 past the halfway mark of the season, we’ve experienced a lot of it. We need to bottle it up and do something about it.”
“Nobody’s like going to the rope, nobody’s thinking that we can’t do it. But that’s our challenge not being in a situation where every other night we’re explaining why didn’t get the job done.”
They had the Celtics on the ropes and were seemingly on their way to yet another win on their rivals’ home floor. And yet, they wilted in the fourth quarter and overtime.
Boston outscored them 39-29 to split their regular-season series at one game apiece.
Steph Curry is making 41.7% of his 11.8 three-point attempts per game.

"Another bad loss for the Warriors. They blow a 17-point lead at home to a Nets team without Kevin Durant. They were up 12 with under six ...
...minutes left. Brooklyn closed on a 22-6 run. Rough fourth quarter for Steph Curry. Klay Thompson went 0 of 7 from 3. Record: 23-24."
But they’ve been able to build significant leads in a few of those games where their best shooters were throwing bricks. They would just have to learn how to hold on to their advantage to eke out wins.
