Exciting Road Loss: Wild Comeback Falls Short to Suns – NBC Sports Bay Area & California Recap

Steph Curry’s subpar performance in the Warriors’ 123-115 Wednesday night loss to the Phoenix Suns at Footprint Center tells only a portion of the intriguing narrative.

Throughout the game, all 12 of the active Warriors players contributed under the leadership of Steve Kerr. They displayed relentless determination, coming from a 23-point deficit down to a six-point gap in the final minute. They pressed on, eventually reducing the margin to just three points with 12 seconds remaining.

Despite fielding mostly substitutes and rookies, the Warriors managed to outscore the Suns 40-32 in the fourth quarter.

Key bench players, including Brandin Podziemski and Cory Joseph, significantly contributed to the team’s effort, showcasing remarkable performance off the bench. Brandin Podziemski got a 23-minute playtime and registered 10 points, four rebounds, three steals, and two assists. Cory Joseph had 16 minutes on the court and recorded a plus-12. Meanwhile, Dario Saric, who was a plus-12, was the top scorer with 17 points.

The bench players combined for an impressive 53 points, nearly pulling off a miraculous comeback in Phoenix.

While Klay Thompson once again surpassed the 20-point mark, Stephen Curry had an off-night, scoring a season-low 16 points and concluding his 14-game streak of making at least four three-pointers to start the season.

Klay Consistency

Following his strong performance on Monday, Klay Thompson’s sustained solid performance was pivotal for the Warriors. He played a crucial role in the game by scoring 23 points, shooting 8-of-17 from the field and making 6-of-10 3-pointers – setting a new season high. His consistency will be vital for the Warriors to regain momentum.

Thompson’s performance, coupled with the expected return of Draymond Green and Gary Payton, holds promise for the Warriors’ upcoming games.

This feat, led mostly by bench players, exhibits the team’s unyielding spirit and determination to compete at the highest level.

Whistle Woes

Throughout the game, the Warriors faced an uphill battle due to foul calls and difficulties at the free-throw line.
