Klay Thompson after loss to Bucks: ‘We beat ourselves’
The Golden State Warriors saw their record 24-game winning streak to start the season come to an end Saturday night in Milwaukee as they fell to the Bucks 108-95. The Warriors were playing the last of a 7-game road trip, went to double-overtime in Boston the night before, and probably did not get to bed til around 5:00 am Saturday morning, which may have accounted for the off game.
And if you were expecting the Warriors to sit there and praise the sub-.500 Bucks for claiming their 10th win of the season, you have another thing coming. Klay Thompson certainly wasn’t about to.
“We missed shots. They didn’t shut us down. No one shuts us down,” the Warriors guard said after the game via Bay Area News Group’s Diamond Leung. “It’s disappointing because I thought we beat ourselves, especially on my end.”
Is that the mentality of a sore loser? Hardly.
The Warriors were not facing the Bucks on even ground. Put these teams in a seven-game series and it’s a sweep.
Now back at home for two weeks, the Warriors will have a chance to rest and collect themselves for their upcoming games. That includes a rematch with the Bucks on Friday, and you better have the sirens on alert for a blowout.
After hearing what Thompson had to say, we’re just waiting for a writer to whine about the Warriors not complimenting the Bucks enough like that one Utah Jazz writer did.
