Warriors get blasted by Heat
With the defending NBA champion Miami Heat in town, the Warriors figured to have a tough time winning. With starting point guard Stephen Curry on the bench in a suit, turns out they didn't stand a chance.
Golden State was embarrassed on its home court Wednesday night, losing 92-75 at Oracle Arena. The Heat sent Golden State to its second straight defeat and avenged a loss to the Warriors in Miami last month.
Curry missed his first game of the season after spraining his right ankle at shootaround Wednesday.
In that first game, Miami focused most of its defensive attention on stopping Curry. With the Warriors star out, the Heat's defense completely dominated.
Wednesday's game was over midway through the third quarter. By the time the fourth quarter started, Golden State was down 30 points.
