National Basketball Association roundup: Pacers sweep season series against Golden State

National Basketball Association roundup: Pacers sweep season series against Golden State

The Golden State Warriors suffered a major loss last night against the Indiana Pacers, which is not what the team would have wanted approaching the playoffs, and Steve Kerr certainly isn't happy about his team's performance.

The sharpshooting Nets were 19 of 39 from 3-point range.

Of course, it doesn't help that the Warriors are missing Stephen Curry (left knee), Patrick McCaw (spine), Omri Casspi (right ankle) and Andre Iguodala (left knee). "We just have to hit them and we will have a chance", Bogdanovic said.

"I really was looking forward to playing them with their roster tonight, just to see where we were", McMillan said.

If he does it in the first round with Steph Curry still healing, it could be an early exit for the Warriors this season. It took us awhile to ramp the aggressiveness up. They took the lead for good on Lance Stephenson's 3 with 9:46 left in the first half and never allowed Golden State to get closer than 10 after halftime.

"We're the underdog in every matchup", Oladipo said. "Last few games, we cared". But they only led by one, 27-26, heading into the second.

"Yeah, I'm mad. I'm embarrassed, I'm embarrassed". "I know that this game doesn't mean anything in the seedings". Two meetings in ten days against the Golden State Warriors, who've won the NBA Championship in two of the last three years, ... and two Pacers win.

Golden State failed to outscore the Pacers in a single quarter as in built a 22-point lead midway through the third quarter.

The Warriors were swept by an Eastern Conference team for the first time since Charlotte did it in 2013-14. It's an embarrassing effort and a pathetic effort. The leader of the "Warriors" Kevin Durant made 15 mistakes with the game and ended the match with the index of usefulness "-17".

Pacers: Have five wins this season against last year's National Basketball Association finalists - two over the defending champs and three over runner-up Cleveland. A spot shooter for most of the season, Bogdanovic has been more committed to driving the lane and using the baseline to score. Thad Young had 16 points and eight rebounds. "We needed to be physical and work on the offensive end of the floor, and I thought both units did that for 48 minutes".
