The Golden State Warriors’ home streak of 54 straight home games (36 this season) finally ended on Friday night after the Celtics came to town and left with a 109-106 victory.
Steph Curry had a game-high 29, along with 8 more 3-pointers, but the Celtics got 20+ points from 3 players, led by 22 from Isaiah Thomas; 18 of those 22 came in a 3rd quarter duel with Steph, who scored 21 in the quarter and hit another near half court shot.
But the 3 Curry needed the most, a 3-point shot with 5.3 seconds left in regulation with the Warriors down by 3, was off.
“Every one of them I think is going down. But it didn’t,” Curry said of the miss. “All things considered, it was a pretty good look at it. … We’ve gotten away with some games that we probably shouldn’t have won with some shots like that. And tonight it wasn’t our night.”
The Warriors now have to win 5 of their last 6 games to break the 95 Bulls’ record of 72 wins.
