The Warriors shot themselves in the foot. They have yet to learn that jumpers don’t fall as much on the road, down the stretch, coming from behind. Monta, Roberson, Barnes – they all took some terrible shots down teh stretch instead of getting to the basket.
This one hurts because the Warriors are now 1-5 on the road, with a six-game road trip coming up.You don’t win on the road by shooting jumpers. You win on the road by getting layups, getting to the foul line, cherishing possessions and looking for the best possible shot.
But this is what happens when you one player who can create off the dribble and one player who can create in the paint (who is injured and unavailable). That’s on Chris Mullin. He assembled this roster.
