Sometimes you live by the three, and other times you die by it. On Tuesday, the Warriors suffered the latter in a 113-111 overtime loss to the Bulls. The Dubs missed all 13 of their 3-point attempts in the second half, bringing an end to the team’s 19-game home winning streak.

The Warriors, who never trailed by more than two in just their second loss of the season, led for the majority of the game, but points were hard to come by as the game wore on. The Dubs were up by seven with five minutes left in regulation, but couldn’t make enough plays down the stretch to close it out. And after a Stephen Curry turnover in the backcourt led to a Kirk Hinrich 3-pointer that gave the Bulls a two-point lead with 15.8 seconds left, the Warriors never led again.

Draymond Green preserved the game momentarily with a putback that tied the game up with less than three seconds left, but the Bulls had the answer in overtime. The teams traded baskets with Chicago striking first, and Derrick Rose capped a 30-point, 11-turnover performance by netting a well-defended jumper from the top of the key with 8.4 seconds left.

Klay Thompson had a chance to tie it on the other end, but his driving attempt was off the mark. Thompson finished with 30 points – his third straight game with 30-plus – and he matched a career-high with 10 rebounds. Stephen Curry added 21 points and nine assists, and David Lee stepped up in the absence of Andrew Bogut (flu) and tallied 24 points, nine rebounds and six assists.

With Bogut out of the lineup, the Warriors were severely undersized, but they tried to take advantage by getting out on the break and running at every opportunity. The Dubs out-scored Chicago on fastbreak points 31-8, but much of that damage was done in the first half.

Down by as many as 11, Chicago grinded and always stayed within striking distance. The Bulls out-scored the Dubs 24-14 on second chance points and controlled the boards 61-48.

The loss was the first to an Eastern Conference opponent for the Warriors, but they’ll look to get back on track when they visit the Utah Jazz on Friday.
