The Golden State Warriors reminded their supporters on Thursday night that their team’s most defining characteristic over the previous two seasons has been inconsistency, just as they appeared to be gaining some positive momentum. When the Dubs returned home to start a crucial run of home games, they were defeated 114-102 by the Miami Heat. Despite being without Kyle Lowry and Jimmy Butler, the Heat just seemed like a stronger team from the beginning to the end.


The performance of the Warriors has many noteworthy aspects, and Joe Viray will undoubtedly soon analyze some of the most important ones. Throughout the entire game, the Dubs appeared apathetic, disorganized, and unruly. But the best players on the court win in basketball, and neither of Golden State’s key players was present.

A team-high 13 points were scored by each of the Splash Brothers. You did not read that incorrectly. Curry played for less than 32 minutes and finished the game 3-for-15 from the field. He was constantly smothered by the Heat’s defensive strategy after realizing he needed to be more aggressive in the second half. He had been far too happy to be a decoy in the first half. Thompson was just 4-for-11 from the field in his 25 minutes of play, but he did record 5 assists and 2 steals.

Only three players in the rotation had a positive plus/minus total: Andrew Wiggins, Moses Moody, and Trayce Jackson-Davis. Six other Warriors players finished in double figures. In just twenty-five minutes, Jackson-Davis recorded another double-double with ten points and eleven boards.

With Curry and Thompson sidelined, the Warriors needed a strong showing from Jonathan Kuminga. Rather, he was 0-for-3 from deep and made six turnovers. Though Kuminga’s play has improved, Thursday’s defeat served as a reminder that he will experience growing pains before playing a bigger part for the Warriors.

The Warriors will try to reorganize for their Saturday game against the Mavericks during their one-day off.
