Milwaukee took care of the Warriors early in this one. With each team missing key players, it’s unlikely Golden State will be losing any sleep, but it is the latest reminder that the Bucks top gear is very, very good.

Stephen Curry: “We always talk about breaking this into three seasons. Getting off to a good start, and waiting for Klay and Wise to get back. In this period we’re in right now, we have to make those adjustments, and continue to try to get better…Then make a playoff push.” – 11:32 PM

Bobby Portis (@Bobby Portis) didn’t get a chance to have an all-star weekend last year in the 3-point contest because of the bubble format.

Kevon Looney: “We just didn’t play with our normal identity. … Tonight, we kind of slipped a lot on the defensive end. That was probably the most concerning thing.” – 10:20 PM

Steve Kerr: “When you look at where Giannis is now, and you think about him as a rookie, you got to think about JK (Jonathan Kuminga)… Not much understanding of the NBA, not much understanding of what’s going on yet. But that’s exactly where Giannis was a decade ago.” – 10:17 PM

Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer:
“There was a good focus from us tonight. I think when it starts on the defensive end, that’s when we’re at our best. A team like the Warriors, a player like Curry, Thompson, they bring out the best in you. They bring out the highest focus.” – 10:11 PM

It’s not time for the Warriors to press the panic button yet, despite dropping four of their last five. But. For the first time this season, they have multiple issues hindering them right now that they can’t shoot their way out of. They need to take a good look in the mirror. – 9:55 PM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
This some real adversity for the Warriors. They’ve got multiple problems to address. The hot start raised the stakes and now they gotta handle it. Will be fun to see how they respond – 9:52 PM

Warriors get blown out in Milwaukee. Fourth straight road loss with a difficult back-to-back in Chicago tomorrow night without Draymond/Klay/maybe more. First real stretch of adversity for the still 30-11 Warriors. Offense has gone quiet, Curry in a slump. – 9:46 PM

Giannis and Middleton still playing??? – 9:27 PM

Reggie Miller is right: Steph Curry still feels like the leader in the MVP race, but it’s tightening. Durant, Giannis, Embiid, Ja, the vote could be interesting come April. – 9:22 PM

I bet the Bucks love all the talk about the Nets and the Bulls and everyone else. Because Milwaukee is crazy good and still relatively under the radar – 9:22 PM

Rough shooting night for Klay Thompson in his third game back: 3-of-11 FG, 11 points. Blowout L did free Steve Kerr to give Klay a 10-minute run to open the third quarter, double his longest court time consecutively since return. Notable as he ramps it up. – 9:11 PM

Bucks are playing a tiny lineup here with Middleton as the nominal center and Hill, DiVincenzo, Connaughton and Nwora.

Best thing the Warriors can take from this game might be the hope that Jonathan Kuminga is studying Giannis verrry closely and taking notes – 9:05 PM
Kane Pitman @KanePitman
The Bucks picked up Wesley Matthews mid-season as a free agent and now have had him guarding Kevin Durant one night and Steph Curry the next. Maybe the break was good for him but he’s been a great addition to the roster and his defensive versatility should be important. – 9:02 PM

This whole half should be about getting Curry a rhythm. Nothing else even matters – 8:50 PM

Warriors opening the second half with a Curry, Klay, Poole, Wiggins, Looney lineup. If anything, at least gives the Curry/Klay/Poole lineup combo some needed reps together. – 8:49 PM

Curry just does not control games the way he used to, he is not a cheat code answer, and Klay’s return isn’t going to save the Warriors under these new Curry circumstances. We need to fire that “Warriors need a trade” narrative all the way back up – 8:25 PM

Rough start for the Warriors, who just dug a quick 16-4 hole. Golden State really struggling with Giannis. Have to wonder if, with Looney in foul trouble and Green out, Kuminga will get an opportunity on him. – 7:43 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Klay Thompson has started 0-for-3 and Steph Curry has yet to take a shot for Golden State.

Gary Payton II tried to free Curry on a high pick-and-roll. Matthews hit the deck. Illegal screen called and then Stever Kerr got a technical foul. Tech FT from Middleton good. Bucket for Bobby Portis.
Bucks up, 16-4, with 7:05 left in the first quarter. – 7:42 PM

Andre Iguodala is not having a fun time on Giannis in the early minutes. Don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves, but could you imagine seven games of Giannis vs. Dray 🔥 – 7:41 PM

#Bucks up 10 now on the #Warriors. Giannis Antetokounmpo has eight points and an assist. – 7:41 PM

Five of the 10 guys on the floor at tip-off of Golden State vs. Milwaukee had dads who played in the league: Steph (Dell) Curry, Klay (Mychal) Thompson, Andrew (Mitchell) Wiggins, Gary Payton II and Wesley (Wes) Matthews. Wonder if there’s ever been more… – 7:37 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
It’s nights like tonight the Warriors wish they had Wiseman. Looney just picked up 2 early fouls, and Golden State don’t have many big, agile bodies to put on Giannis. – 7:36 PM
Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
Tough start for Milwaukee native Kevon Looney, who draws not only Giannis Antetokounmpo but two fouls in the first two minutes. #Bucks up 4-2. – 7:36 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Two fouls on Kevon Looney guarding Giannis in the first 62 seconds. No Draymond Green. Steve Kerr subbing in Andre Iguodala, but I do wonder if Jonathan Kuminga will get a defensive shift on him tonight. He is active after missing last game. Not a lot of great options for GSW. – 7:35 PM

Another night, another milestone for SC30 👏

On Thursday against the Bucks, the Warriors will be without Draymond Green for the second consecutive contest due to left calf tightness. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2022/01/13/inj…7:33 PM

The Grizzlies nailed a marketing masterpiece when they allowed young fans to trade in opposing jerseys on Thursday.
First in line, an 11-year-old from Benton, Arkansas, ready to fork over Curry for Morant.
