Phoenix Suns Vs. Golden State Warriors basketball game
Steph Curry scored 50 points for the eleventh consecutive time during his NBA career. However, his efforts were insufficient for the struggling Golden State Warriors against the Phoenix Suns as the defending champions were defeated 130-119.
The Warriors are currently 6-9 on the year and have not won in eight road games which is a worrying indication as the team attempts to secure a fifth title in the last five years.
The longest road-losing streak of a champion from the Chicago Bulls in the 1998/99 season. According to ESPN and the Warriors are the team with the longest road losing streak since the beginning of a campaign since the 1989/90 season.
“We’re never going to be in a panic. There’s no reason to be worrying,” Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters after the game on Wednesday.
“What we must do is stick with it and uncover it. To find it, we need to get everyone on the same page and in the same boat regarding not worrying about winning. That’s the goal.
