BROOKLYN—A pair of comeback bids in consecutive nights was too tall of an order, as the Golden State Warriors ended their visit to the Eastern seaboard with a 110-108 loss to the Brooklyn Nets.
Coming off a rousing 26-point comeback against the Boston Celtics, Golden State appeared to just barely lack the gas to put-away a mediocre Brooklyn squad.
Yes, Golden State still owns the NBA’s best record. Yes, the Warriors still own the best back-court and starting five in the NBA. Yes, a pair of lackluster performances in early March have little bearing upon who will win the 2015 NBA championship.
At this juncture, there really isn’t much more the Warriors need to prove in the 2014-2015 regular season.
The true test of what head coach Steven Kerr, the Splash Brothers, and company have built won’t come for a few months.
But those tests won’t come against failing Eastern conference foes. To get where they need to go, they will need to face lions, tigers, and bears. Okay, more accurately Grizzlies, Mavericks, and Rockets. Will these Warriors be able to conquer these challenges?
Are you staying on the bandwagon? Stay tuned for more.
