So, the Warriors enter the fourth quarter down 23 points to the Bucks — the worst team on the five-game trip.
Assuming they’re going to lose (how dare I?), that puts them six games below .500. Chalking up Wednesday’s game as another loss — they’re 1-14 in the second night of back-to-backs — that’s seven-game under .500.
Let’s give them the Knicks game. For the sake of the anyone who argues they still have a shot at the playoffs (wait, hasn’t that been me?), let’s just concede that they’ll beat New York, even though the Knicks are playing well. That puts them six games below. After that is Washington and Detroit. Two of the East’s best teams. They’ll likely lose both, which drops them to eight games under .500.
Will it be, at that point, safe to say the season is over?
