Although they put up a spirited fight, the Golden State Warriors suffered another defeat in the NBA, this time to their 2022 NBA Finals opponents, the Boston Celtics in overtime.
Steve Kerr's side showed glimpses of a championship team and were close to tying the game at the end of overtime. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Andrew Wiggins all played close to 40 minutes.
Boston narrowly won 121-118 at TD Garden, which was the first clash between the two teams after last season's NBA Finals. The seven-time NBA champions have now dropped back below .500 (22-23).
They had a seven-point lead in the fourth quarter, but couldn't hold it. The defending champions hung with the Celtics for most of the game, frustrating MVP candidate Jayson Tatum who was inefficient, per NBC Sports.

Curry on Warriors struggles
Curry said that his team is capable of beating the best teams in the NBA. However, he said they still haven't shown they can sustain that competitiveness for a whole game, per ESPN. The Warriors are now 5-18 on the road.
"We're capable, but it's a matter of execution and being able to sustain it. There's another level to get to that we haven't gotten [to] in terms of putting together a full 48 minutes."
The Warriors are 9th in the Western Conference and that game indicates what the Warriors can be if things start clicking. Steve Kerr said his team resembled a Championship team.
“All in all, I loved the level of competition, the way the guys played the together. We looked like what we are, which is a championship team."
