NBA, Warriors vs Pacers, Indiana: A fighting win for the Golden State Warriors after a defeat in their last game. The defense stood up at the last moment to take the game with 102-100.

Leading his team with 26 points, Stephen Curry was on the move. However, his efficiency has dropped over the past few games, shooting 8-20 from the field while turning the ball over seven times.

The Warriors were far more efficient from the field all game (the Warriors shot 50% from the field compared to Indiana’s 40.2%), but a combination of Dubs turnovers and fouls gave the Pacers plenty of room to operate.

Rookies given chance and stepped up at that opportunity. Especially, Jonathan Kuminga giving Golden State Warriors some quality minutes off the bench finishing the game with +11 in the first half.

Domantas Sabonis was amazing throughout the game. Taking advantage of not having the right size big in the visitor’s lineup, scoring up a game-high 30 points pairing up with 11 rebounds.

The 76ers gave the Warriors bench a hard time the last time out, but they surely took that into consideration and operated it nicely against the hosts. Otto Porter Jr. racked up 10 points and 6 rebounds, however, he struggled a lot to guard Sabonis inside the paint.

Finishing with 15 points, 9 boards, 5 assists, Draymond Green was the guy keeping the visitors within the striking distance. Making some clutch shots and layups while their strike attackers were having a day off offensively.

The Warriors’ outside shooting woes (26.7% from three-point land) and turnovers were significantly self-inflicted. Still, the Pacers also committed to forcing the Dubs’ weaker offensive players to beat them in an even more dramatic way than usual.

Center Kevon Looney was giving a hard time to the pacers. Capitalizing on the hosts’ sluggish approach scoring 14 points on 70% shooting. Looney somehow made the game-winning basket to prove handy in a clutch situation.

Stephen Curry is just one three away from tieing the all-time made threes of Ray Allen. But it is undeniable that Curry is running from a rough patch. Golden State is 22-5 and has still been an incredibly challenging opponent despite his recent slump. Still, everyone is hoping the bright lights of New York will spark a historic performance from Steph worth remembering.
