• 12-for-39 FGs (30.8%)
(including 2-for-18 from three)
• 2-for-4 FTs
• 7 assists
• 8 rebounds – 1:56 AM

‘This was my night to stink it up.’ – Warriors coach Steve Kerr, after 121-117 home loss to a Pacers team on a back to back and without its four core players – 1:22 AM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Doesn’t sound like the Warriors have any plan to rest Steph Curry, who played 44 minutes, on the second night of a back-to-back tomorrow. Kerr said he thought Curry looked “strong” tonight. – 1:20 AM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Steve Kerr says he struggled to find right mix of players to use on floor and he usually fouls when a team needs a 3 late and didn’t. “This was my night to stink it up.” – 1:18 AM

“This was my night to stink it up.” — Steve Kerr, blaming the loss on himself – 1:17 AM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Steve Kerr on the lineup choices down the stretch of regulation: “That’s one of the challenges I have right now, trying to find the right combination. Tonight, I did not do a good job of that.” – 1:17 AM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Steve Kerr: “I didn’t think I prepared my team to be ready to play. … I did not do a good job of preparing the group.” – 1:15 AM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Steve Kerr on loss to undermanned Indiana: “I blame myself. I don’t think I did a good job of preparing the team to play.” – 1:14 AM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Terrible loss for the Warriors.
Insult to injury: Curry played 44 minutes, Iguodala 31, Wiggins 38. And now they gotta beat Houston on Friday – 1:06 AM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Steph Curry played 44 minutes tonight on the front end of a back-to-back. Steve Kerr has already said the Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala will be out tomorrow against the Rockets, so it’s unlikely Steph will get a chance to rest. – 1:04 AM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
FINAL: Warriors fall to the Pacers in OT, 121-117. Will be interesting to see what Kerr’s reaction is postgame. Has to be Golden State’s worst loss of the season. – 1:02 AM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Warriors fall 121-117 in OT to the Pacers, who entering tonight had a 5-20 record in clutch tie games — the worst in the NBA.
GSW were 16.5-point favorites heading into tonight. This loss is their third-largest upset in the Steve Kerr era. h/t @ESPNStatsInfo1:02 AM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Worst loss of the season for the Warriors. Fall at home to Pacers on a second night of a b2b without Sabonis, Turner, Brogdon, LeVert. Several untimely GSW defensive breakdowns. They went 9-of-42 from 3. Steph Curry: 44 minutes on front side of b2b. Klay/Wiggins/Poole: 12/39 FG. – 1:02 AM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Kerr brings in KLAY and Poole. Because now they need a 3 – 12:57 AM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors stumble into OT against the depleted Pacers. Klay Thompson at 23 minutes, which has been his max. Wonder if Kerr pushes it. Steph Curry at 39 minutes on front side of a back-to-back. – 12:41 AM
Marcus Thompson @ThompsonScribe
Curry is at 27 minutes. Kerr would love to keep him to 36 or fewer.
Does he keep Curry out there the whole fourth? – 11:58 PM

Steve Kerr on James Wiseman’s rehab from knee surgery: “This has just not been an easy one to figure out.”
sfchronicle.com/sports/warrior…10:06 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Still no full contact work for James Wiseman. Warriors haven’t had much practice time/opportunity lately. Steve Kerr acknowledges stalled nature of it: “I’m aware I’m the boy who cried wolf. When it happens, it happens and we’ll let you know.”

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Still no James Wiseman update after @Monte Poole asked Steve Kerr. Kerr explained the Warriors haven’t practiced in a week, and they won’t practice Saturday after the back-to-back. “Not an easy one to figure out,” said Kerr about a timeline for Wiseman’s return. – 8:34 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
No new update for James Wiseman yet. Steve Kerr says he won’t have one by the end of this week because the team hasn’t practiced, and won’t before Monday.
“This whole process has been frustrating, for James above all … This just has not been an easy one to figure out.” – 8:25 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Steve Kerr on Andrew Wiggins’ All-Star candidacy: “I really, really hope he makes it. I think he deserves it.” – 8:25 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Warriors skipped scheduled practice and had an in-arena home run derby yesterday. Steve Kerr said he felt the team was “tired” after a ton of travel lately and this was chance for a refresh.

Steve Kerr on James Wiseman: “This has just not been an easy one to figure out. We’re still hopeful he’ll be cleared for contact soon, but there hasn’t been an opportunity for that to happen this week.” – 8:23 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Steve Kerr says Klay Thompson will not play tomorrow in the second of a back to back. He will play tonight. No update on James Wiseman. – 8:22 PM

I’m hosting Warriors pregame and postgame again tonight! Tune in to see if the Warriors continue their domination on the home court, versus a depleted Pacers team. Could Steph, Klay, and Wiggins each go for 20+? pic.twitter.com/jEAjLyO5LI4:48 PM

Latest All-Star returns have Devin Booker in 5th (still behind Klay Thompson), Chris Paul in 7th (still behind Russell Westbrook) and Deandre Ayton still in 10th. Andrew Wiggins still somehow in 3rd in frontcourt voting pic.twitter.com/ZmwtHbWIpv1:02 PM

Aaron Wiggins is there when you need him, always on time. Without his great first frame, this game might be lost. – 9:02 PM
