The 3 Point Contest was loaded with lethal shooters, including the Curry brothers, Devin Booker, and the really, really old Dirk Nowitzki.
The Warriors got Steph Curry back tonight, so naturally they should’ve beaten the Pistons. I mean, KD the snake, the Splash Bros, bench depth, Warriors basketball, everyone else should be dog shit compared to these guys. In reality though, they’re not even the best team in California. The Clippers are currently the one seed and the Dubs are a middle of the pack team in a loaded West. But looking at the box score of tonight’s Warriors-Pistons showdown shows a startling fact: the Warriors are slowly but surely losing their identity. In the past, they’ve thrived by sharing the ball, playing smart, and shooting well. Tonight against the Pistons KD, Steph, Klay, all scored 20+ points (28, 27, and 21 respectively). But the rest of the team scored a combined 26 points, the next highest to Klay being 9 points. Meanwhile, Detroit had 6 players in double figures, including Blake Griffin with 26 and Stanley Johnson adding 19. That’s a big difference in the type of game they played tonight. The Warriors did not play team basketball tonight and they have been mediocre compared to their past 4 seasons of complete fucking destruction. NBA fans must be thrilled since they’re not the big bad Dub Nation they have been in the past. They still have plenty of time to get their act together, but they have definitely lost a piece of their former selves this season.
