Warriors lose 123-111 to Pacers

San Francisco – The Warriors are in a fight to maintain the tenth spot to return to the playoffs. Their chances are looking slim if they don’t pick up a winning streak soon. Golden State’s 123-111 loss to the Indiana Pacers tonight, has them up 2 1/2 games ahead of the Houston Rockets who’ve won their last seven games.

The Warriors fell to 18-19 at home, and they’re 17-10 vs. the Eastern Conference this season overall and 9-6 at home. Golden State and Indiana split the season series 1-1, with each team winning away from home. The Warriors fell to 6-20 on the season when giving up 120-or-more points but, grabbed a season-high tying 64 rebounds (10/30 at NOP).

“I mean the NBA, like every game, takes a different life of its own, said Stephen Curry. “We always talk about us in the margins, like if you don’t play hard or if you don’t come with like focused effort, you can just run around and run crazy, but if you don’t execute and do the details, especially defensively. It gives them easy looks from three, giving them driving lanes, giving them offensive rebounds, that is where you could give effort, but you’re not focused mentally. So, it’s disappointing in terms of the effort that we had tonight.”

Curry posted his sixth double-double on the season, scoring 20-or-more points for the 50th time and grabbing double-figure rebounds for the third time. His 11 rebounds matched a season high (2/29 at NYK). Curry sank six-or-more 3-point baskets for a league-leading 26th  time this season (Luka Dončić is second with 13-such games).

Trayce Jackson-Davis tallied double-figure rebounds for the sixth time this season. He recorded his 15th multi-block game, the most by a Warriors rookie since Festus Ezeli had 18 during the 2012-13 season. In the 17 games he has played at least 20 minutes, Jackson-Davis averaging 12.0 points (74.4 FG%), 7.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.8 blocks in 24.3 minutes per game.

I had some turnovers,” Brandon Podziemski. “Obviously, they are number one in the league in scoring, Tyrese (Haliburton) and T.J. (McConnell) do a good job in pushing the ball on makes or misses. I think that affected us. Off of makes they were scoring back at us. We don’t play as fast as them. That makes you have to make shots and if you don’t, they are pushing it back at you it becomes tough and that is how you get the 8-0, 10-0 runs.”

Up Next: The Warriors travel to Minneapolis to face the Timberwolves on Sunday, March 24 (4 p.m. PDT), in the first game of a five-game road trip.
