Golden State Warriors And Lamar Odom
April 13, 2012 by staff
Golden State Warriors And Lamar Odom, Thursday’s 112-103 loss to the visiting Dallas Mavericks at Oracle Arena was a perfect scenario for many Warriors fans. They got to see some standout performances, namely one from rookie shooting guard Klay Thompson, who totaled 24 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.
They got to see a competitive game, as Golden State fought back from 19 down to get as close as three early in the fourth quarter. They even got a free smoothie from Jamba Juice, the prize for the Warriors topping 100.
To top it all off, they got a loss — keeping alive the Warriors’ hopes of keeping their 2012 first-round draft pick. With an eye toward the June draft, many Warriors fans are happy each time Golden State loses.
But the losing ways aren’t sitting well with some of the youngsters on the roster.
“I hate it,” rookie shooting guard Klay Thompson said before the game. “Burns me up.”
“I’m (upset) after every loss,” added rookie big man Jeremy Tyler. “After every one.”
With the loss to the defending champions, Golden State has dropped three straight and 15 of its last 19 games. The Warriors season has spiraled out of control, and now all everyone can talk about is whether they can lose enough to keep the draft pick.
