Leandro Barbosa: "Things were very ugly on our side, and there was nothing we could do. … It was a tough game for us."
Andre Iguodala: "We have to respect the game and respect the way you’re supposed to play the game defensively."
Andrew Bogut: "“This was the worst game I’ve played all year. I didn’t have energy, didn’t feel good rhythm and just couldn’t get it going."
Steve Kerr: "The only way you can win is if you bring the necessary energy and focus, and we didn’t have enough life to win a game."
Warriors still with a league-best +11 point differential and 12.3 net rating (offensive rating - defensive rating)
CORRECTION: The Warriors have been outscored for 6 of last 7 quarters (not including OT)
Warriors had won 22 straight games with Andrew Bogut on the court before tonight.
The Warriors have been outscored for 7 consecutive quarters (not including OT)
FYI, Chicago loss was on Curry. But that was obvious
Warriors have lost 8 games. I say 1 is on Kerr and yall go crazy.
Since Draymond Green's 7-for-13 anomaly from 3-point range vs. Bulls in early December, he's 27-for-94 since -- 28.7 percent.
So the whole team doesn't show up, save for Curry. The Warriors never led against scrub Utah. But no blame for Kerr? Ok
I'd say this is the first L this season on Kerr
Holiday has been fighting the ball for three or four games now. Maybe just a rough stretch. But can the Warriors count on him?
Problem isn't so much this loss; it's that it could set up three losses in a row. Makes tomorrow a very large game for this stage.
Bogut: 22 minutes, 2-for-3 shooting, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 0 blocks, 4 points... -17 in the plus/minus.
And there goes Curry. Smart.
Andrew Bogut and David Lee fired up on the bench after that alley-oop before the timeout.
A few more minutes of this and Kerr might have to pull Curry to make sure they're not sacrificing tomorrow night.
Utah shooting 48.4 percent. Warriors hold teams to 42.2 FG% coming into tonight
Fans at Utah get a free Chick-fil-A sandwich if a Warriors player misses back-to-back free throws.
David Lee time
Curry still in to start 4th.
Warriors missing FTs, letting no-names have breakout games, playing down to competition ... Sounds too familiar
Curry not getting his usual rest at the start of the fourth quarter.
Curry's normal rest would come here, for 1st 4-6 minutes of 4th quarter. With a home game vs. Suns tomorrow, let's see what Kerr does.
Dante Exum is being evaluated in the locker room after being hit in the throat.
Dante Exum being evaluated after getting hit in the throat by Draymond Green.
Stephen Curry is getting frustrated with all of the grabbing and holding.
Or this thing could be over before they get to the fourth quarter.
Big clunker games from Barnes and Bogut so far tonight.
Steve Kerr is going small: Curry, Thompson, Iguodala, Barnes, Green. "We've got to spread them out."
Andrew Bogut joins Draymond Green in the three-foul club.
Festus Ezeli is playing in Reno.
The Warriors have lost five straight quarters (six counting overtime). They failed to score 30 in all of them, getting outscored 140-121

Quin Snyder: "What Klay did the other night was remarkable, and Bogut might be the best center in the league. Let's set the record straight"
"all animals except man know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it" - samuel butler
Andrew Bogut is back in the starting lineup, and also starting are fellow Aussies Dante Exum and Joe Ingles.
My full list: Kaman, T.Hill, J.Magloire, Jameer Nelson, Szczerbiak, D.Barros, Eaton, Devin Harris, J.Donaldson, C.Gatling
Gatling should be there. I had mentioned him earlier. Szczerbiak on my list but got lucky because of Twitter 140 limit.
GSW at UTAH starters: GSW -- Curry, Thompson, Barnes, Green, Bogut; UTAH -- Exum, Ingles, Hayward, Favors, Kanter.
Here's my opposite of All-Star snubbed list. These guys were actual all-stars: D.Barros, J.Magloire, Devin Harris, M.Eaton, Tyrone Hill.
Andrew Bogut picked up some Turkish swear words from playing with Ersan Ilyasova, so looks like Enes Kanter appreciated that.
If Warriors pay D. Green max-type money ($12 mill), as Jeff Van Gundy says, it means S.Curry would be 6th-highest paid Warrior next year.
Damian Lillard deleted the Instagram post. Sign he'll be added to the roster?
If you want to compare profit numbers, to be very conservative, we'll put the 49ers at $100M in 2014. The Raiders are around $10M, I think.
That doesn't include sponsorships, suite money, concessions, local TV/radio deals, parking... And... the salary cap was $133M last year.
A few 49ers money numbers: Sold $600M in PSLs, take in about $180M per year from national TV rights, $20M per for Levi's naming rights.
You can always tell that their first emotional response to a common-sense question is: How dare you!
Something tells me that Dame about to go for 40 tonight!!! Watching his path this isn't the first time he's been in a situation like this...
