Is it just us, or have the Warriors looked a bit vulnerable lately? There was that stretch where they lost 2 of 3 games, and though they recovered nicely in blowout victories against the Cavs and Spurs, on any given night, the Warriors are now looking a lot more beatable than they looked during the first couple months of the season. Last night was a perfect example of that.
Sure, the Warriors squeaked out a victory–and looked very good at times in the process–but consider their foe: the Sixers, who are running screaming towards the top pick in this summer’s draft. Had it not been for some sensational ball movement, and a Harrison Barnes three-pointer from the corner with 0.4 seconds left on the clock, the Warriors might be mulling over the fact that they’re halfway to the 1995-1996 Bulls’ record of 10 losses, and there’s still a whole lot of basketball left.
Well, they won, so they’re not. But as things heat up after the All-Star break, this team is going to be very interesting to watch. Check out Barnes’ game-winner below.
