The rollercoaster called the Golden State Warriors was at it again last night, losing a heartbreaker to the hated Lakers, 115-113. Al Harrington had a good look at the buzzer, but his game-winning attempt fell short, and the Warriors lost yet another road game to fall 1.5 games behind the Clippers for the eighth and final playoff spot.
Last week, we pointed out the crucial nature of this five-game stretch against playoff teams. Well, so far, the W’s are 1-2, with the mighty Spurs on tap tonight. Interestingly enough, the game is at home, and Nellie’s squad hasn’t lost at home in a month. In fact, the home-road discrepancy is pretty shocking; the Warriors are 25-10 at home but just 8-28 on the road. The bad news, however, is that five (out of eleven) road game remain, and to make the playoffs, they’re going to need a couple road wins. We shall see.
