In a season that has seemed like one straight out of Bizarro World, the Warriors’ visit to Brooklyn to the face the Nets Wednesday was another episode.
After their demoralizing performance the last time out against the Jazz, the Warriors were a determined bunch Friday night. They used that grit to cut a 19-point deficit down to four.
The only thing that could stop D’Angelo Russell Saturday was Luka Doncic — and his hip.
Don’t look now, but the Warriors G-League roster is on fire. After proving they can in fact close out a win seven days ago against the Pelicans, they’ve done nothing but close games out.
A gutsy comeback was once again not enough for the scrappy Warriors as they fell, 123-119, to the lowly Knicks in overtime at the Chase Center Wednesday.
The large crowds that usually populate the entrance to Chase Center hours before tip were nowhere to be found Friday. With no Stephen Curry pregame antics, there wasn’t much of a reason to come early.
