The Highest 1st Half Point Totals In NBA History After Kevin Durant's Nets Embarassed Warriors Without Stephen Curry

Things seem to be going downhill for the Golden State Warriors as they registered their 18th loss of the season. The defending champions looked depleted and defeated as the Brooklyn Nets came at them all guns blazing. In the first half, the Nets registered a total of 91 points, showing no mercy to the Warriors. Following this, in the second half, the fortunes of the Warriors remained the same. Stephen Curry, often the answer to the Warriors’ woes, sat on the sidelines watching yet another blowout game. At the end of the final buzzer, the scoreboard read 113-143. With this, the Golden State Warriors' on-road record worsened while more statistics flooded online platforms. As per Stathead, the 143 points made by the Nets were the most points allowed by the Warriors in the Steve Kerr era. Additionally, in a report by ESPN, the 91 points were third on the overall list of most points made in the first half. Reading such stats and facts about a star-studded team was shocking for many fans as they expressed their views online.

NBA world rips through the Warriors

Watching the defending champions crumble isn’t a pleasant sight for Warriors fans. However, many on Twitter were quick to mock and claim that the Warriors are amateurs without Stephen Curry. As the shock of the embarrassing defeat passed through the NBA world, fans commented on how the season is done and dusted for the Warriors.

Another game without Stephen Curry

The 30-point performance from James Wiseman is possibly the only positive that the Warriors can take way from this game. The young star has struggled through the season and ended up playing in the G-League. However, this game was certainly a confidence boost for Wiseman. Apart from Wiseman, the Warriors saw little contributions coming from Moses Moody and Patrick Baldwin Jr.

On the other hand, the Brooklyn Nets witnessed an all-round performance from their roster. No less than nine Nets players bagged double-digits in the point column, while Kevin Durant led the way with 23 points.

For the Warriors, Stephen Curry, Andrew Wiggins, and Klay Thompson were all missing out. When this was pointed out to Kevin Durant, he said, “You always respect them no matter who’s on the floor. They have a championship system and championship players.”
