World news – The warriors’ defense continues to lose to hawks

0

To the Warriors, what was once a true top 10 defense hasn’t looked like it in a while, including losing to the Atlanta Hawks at the Chase Center on Friday night between 124 and 108.

Despite striker Draymond Green returning from a game after an illness-related absence, the Warriors (22-24) offered little resistance at the point of attack or near the edge when the Hawks (23-22) shot a total of 55.4%, including 60 Dots in color. Atlanta forward John Collins scored 38 points and point guard Trae Young, whose free throws gave the Hawks a 22-point lead 1:35 in the second quarter, had 21 points and 15 assists.

« Disappointing for a team that did very well defensively all year round, » said head coach Steve Kerr. « We’re definitely in a funk at the end of the floor right now. »

The warriors’ weak defenses were not aided by a serious offense that left security guard Stephen Curry (tailbone) missing for the fifth game in a row. Striker Andrew Wiggins scored 29 points and Golden State shot a total of 49.4%, but the offense lacked the high octane character and players opted for one-on-one shots.

But Curry’s possible return will not solve the defensive problems that have emerged in recent games. The Warriors have lost nine of their last 12 and have fallen into the bottom 10 of the league in this defensive score in the defensive score. This after the Warriors rose to the fourth best defensive rating in the league in February.

When the warriors snap out of this runner, return to over 500 and push their way into the playoffs, the defense will first be brought back on track.

Next, the Warriors will host the Chicago Bulls on Monday.
