Warriors allow 126 points for second straight game in loss to Pelicans

IN outscored Golden State 35-26 in the third period as the Pacers' lead ballooned to 22 and the advantage was 97-77 entering the final quarter. This game meant basically nothing to the Warriors. Now, in order to have a really good chance at the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, they need to prove their craptitude. The Warriors also have defeated Phoenix for 15 consecutive games, a franchise record against any opponent that dates back to November 9, 2014. The last team to finish the season ranked last in all those categories was the seven-win 2011-12 Charlotte Bobcats. Then again, the Warriors are mindful of the insignificance of their latest win.

This was expected. Golden State entered Saturday night leading the National Basketball Association with 113.8 points per game, with the Pelicans' 111.4 point average at fourth overall.

Durant can obviously put up another 40-point game against the Suns, but don't overlook Quinn Cook. And he's scored in double-figures in 13 straight games, showing off the ability to take over as the lead option and being able to play with the Warriors main weapons.

The Golden State Warriors have 57 regular season wins, and would need to run the table to get to 60.

In all, the Warriors are ready for the playoffs to start, even if they don't yet know who they'll face in a tight Western Conference postseason race.

IN was coming off of a four-game road trip, meaning fatigue is usually expected in the first game back home. That snapped their three game winning streak.

Bojan Bogdanovic scored 28 points on a almost ideal shooting night, Victor Oladipo added 21 and the Pacers pulled away from the short-handed defending champions for a 126-106 blowout - and their first season sweep of the Warriors since 2011-12. As the game went on, the score just became more lopsided.

Bogdanovic had perhaps the best shooting night of his career while also defending Kevin Durant for the majority of the night on the other end.

The Warriors took two of three games from Marvin Ridge last season, with both wins decided in extra innings. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 39.1 percent from beyond the arc and 81.7 percent from the free throw line.

Steve Kerr was not pleased with the effort of his Warriors team against the Indian Pacers. However, the Warriors will have every opportunity to release any frustrations they may have following their back-to-back losses.
