On January 28th, the Golden State Warriors got a reality check when they played the Washington Wizards at home. The Warriors’ offense was near non-existent for the whole game, and they ended up losing to the Wizards 88-85.
The Warriors got another reality check on Tuesday night against a team they should’ve beaten, the Charlotte Bobcats. In this game though, they didn’t lose by just a small margin. They were outplayed all game, and they got blown out by the Bobcats 91-75.
The Warriors have a bad habit of playing up or down to their competition. They are playing stellar, near perfect basketball against the best teams, such as the Portland Trail Blazers, the Los Angeles Clippers, et. al.
However, they are struggling to beat teams that they should be beating like the Wizards and Bobcats.
Andre Iguodala spoke about this unfortunate trend after Tuesday’s loss.
“They just played really hard. You’ve got to realize that anybody can win in this league. You’ll get bit a few times if you continue to fall asleep on them. So this has to be a lesson learned for any of those other teams coming in here with a lesser record. We’ve got to keep that in mind as well going into these games.”
