Last night, the Warriors suffered a meaningless loss to the Utah Jazz, 105-99. This loss did snap the Warriors impressive fourteen game streak dating back the beginning of last month. Stephen Curry scored a game high twenty-eight points on 9-16 shooting, including shooting 6-8 from the three point line. Kevin Durant played a team high thirty-two minutes and scored sixteen points on 6-12 shooting. Klay Thompson was out due to rest purposes.
This game really had no meaning for the Warriors. It was more of a game to help Durant get his rhythm back and integrated back into the offense. The Utah Jazz had a lot more riding on this game as just one game separated them and the Clippers for the fourth seed in the Western Conference. The Jazz though did sit a few of their key players such as Gordon Hayward, Rodney Hood, and Derrick Favors. The Warriors could have of easily came back and won the game in the fourth quarter if Steve Kerr decided to let Curry and Durant play in the fourth, but he knows championships are not won in the regular season. The Warriors play their final regular season game against the visiting Los Angeles Lakers tomorrow night. Tip off is at 7:30 p.m.PT/10:30 p.m.ET on NBC Sports Bay Area.
