Warriors Slip In Indiana
The Warriors fell to 0-2 on their season-long seven-game road trip after suffering a 109-100 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday. Reggie Williams kept the Warriors in the game to the final minute with 13 of his 25 points in the final quarter. Williams also keyed a reserve unit that erased a 13-point deficit and put Golden State ahead in the second quarter with a 21-1 run. Indiana, however, bounced back in the third quarter and was able to keep the Warriors at bay thanks to 32-13 edge at the free throw line. Stephen Curry struggled in the first half but came on strong late to finish with 20 points seven and seven assists and David Lee had 19 points and 11 rebounds for his third-straight double-double. The Warriors will now continue their trip on Wednesday against the Wizards on the back end of a back-to-back.
Keith Smart On today's game:
“I’ve got two teams right now, a great offensive team and a good defensive team. And I have two of them in the middle and I have to figure out how to splice that and turn them into one again. We kept fighting to get back into the game and when we’d get ourselves under control and then we’d give some penetration up. We have to give them credit. Granger (Danny) did what a good player does.”
David Lee On today's game:
“There were times where we didn’t do as good a job as we needed. Danny Granger got to the free throw line a little on some drives where we could have stepped up and helped better. We had times when defensively we were pretty good and active. And at other times we just didn’t do as good a job as we should have. We fought well in the game but we just didn’t play well enough to win.”
Stephen Curry On today's game:
“If you get stops you’re feeling good about yourself. In the second (quarter) we kept them to under 20 points, I think, and we got a lead. We just didn’t do that in the second half. Inconsistency over 48 minutes is definitely coming to bite us a little.”
