The Golden State Warriors seemed well on their method to taking a roadway win over the Boston Celtics in Thursday’s rematch of in 2015’s NBA Finals. A fourth-quarter lull spelled doom for Golden State as it went on to suffer a 121-118 overtime loss at TD Garden.

All 5 Warriors beginners scored in double figures, however it wasn’t enough as head coach Steve Kerr played an eight-man rotation. Stephen Curry blazed a trail with 29 points while Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole included 24 points each. Andrew Wiggins scored 20 points and Draymond Green broke in 11 points, 13 rebounds and 9 helps. Golden State’s bench gamers integrated to rating 10 points.

The Warriors seemed inspired to make a declaration through the very first 3 quarters, however they didn’t address the bell when the Celtics upped the strength in the last frame. Golden State was restricted to simply 17 points in the 4th quarter, enabling Boston to remove a nine-point deficit to require overtime.

NBA Twitter blasted the Warriors for stopping working to play a total video game in Thursday’s loss:

Bonta Hill @BontaHill

The Warriors provided this video game away. This loss stings.

Brian Witt @Wittnessed

Got ta be near best to beat a group as great and as inspired as the Celtics (in the house no less), and the Warriors simply had a couple of a lot of improperly timed screwups to get it done.

Alex @Dubs408

The West is simply distributing the 3/4 seed and the Warriors can’t capitalize at all

Dalton Johnson @DaltonJ_Johnson

Warriors held to just 17 points in the 4th. Can’t take place

Joe Viray @JoeVirayNBA

Warriors got held to 17 in the 4th after scoring a minimum of 26 the previous 3 quarters. Offense passed away since of bad procedure and turnovers. Stopped running their animal things and got too killshot-hungry.

Brian Robb @BrianTRobb

I’ll state this: The Warriors actually believed Marcus Smart was going to take that prospective game-tying 3. 2 leapt at him, leaving Jaylen Brown broad open on the wing.

Vic Lombardi @VicLombardi

The Warriors are gon na drop to 5-18 on the roadway. 22-23 in general. << br><> < br>> Are they undoubtedly broke?<< br><> < br>> By the method, a dreadful nasty contact Klay Thompson in OT. That strip was tidy.

Marcus Thompson II @ThompsonScribe

Warriors make me so mad guy

Golden State is now 2-2 on its journey with one video game staying. There were some positives in the loss, as the Warriors held the high-powered Celtics to 39.8 percent shooting and 31.7 percent from three-point variety.

However, the group’s depth problem appeared and might be an issue come playoff time.

The Warriors (22-23) will have a fast turn-around as they want to recuperate when they check out the Cleveland Cavaliers (28-18) on Friday.
