Warriors trailed Thunder by 33 at halftime and Twitter finally lets loose

It is as bad as everyone thought it’d be for the Golden State Warriors.

Actually, it may be worse.

The Warriors struggled to do much of anything against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday and went into the half trailing, 70-37.

Yes, at halftime. It was the first time the Warriors have trailed by 30 points or more since December 2006 and the largest halftime deficit since they trailed, 73-39, against the Seattle SuperSonics on March 25, 1997.


Steph Curry had 10 points and no other Warriors player had more than five — though some checking in couldn’t even see the box score on ESPN.

They shot 28 percent from the field as a team and never held the lead once. In fact, Golden State has yet to hold a lead this season following its loss to the Los Angeles Clippers to open Chase Center. New realities aren’t always fun.

Of course when you’ve won three of the last five NBA titles — and played in every single one — few outside of the fan base are going to feel bad for you. So Twitter was ablaze with jokes about the drastic drop the Warriors are performing.

The Thunder went on to beat the Warriors by a final of 120-92.

Only 80 more games to go.
