Curry shot 7-of-22 from the floor and 3-of-13 from deep, though he did make one highlight-reel heave off the glass at the end of the first half. Jordan Poole, who dropped 31 on the Hornets earlier this month, had a quiet night with 13 points on 12 attempts.
Despite the struggles in the backcourt, the Warriors’ defense still gave them a shot to win the game. Draymond Green faced Terry Rozier for a jump ball with 20 seconds left and the Warriors trailing by two, but Rozier won the jump and later gave Charlotte a two-possession lead at the line. Golden State scored just 14 points in the fourth quarter, letting a winnable game slip away.
Here’s what fans and analysts are saying about Sunday’s loss in Charlotte:
Tuesday in Brooklyn.
11-2 Warriors — 10-4 Nets
The two (early) leading contenders for MVP square off with Steph Curry v. Kevin Durant.
