The defending champions and the West’s leading team took on each other on Thursday when the Golden State Warriors traveled to the cream city.

The State Warriors have lost four of their last five matches their recent being against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday. They have hit a slump when they were expected to excel this season taking into consideration the level of performance they portrayed since the pre-seasons.

 But unpredictability is what makes this game so interesting; when one seems to be doing just fine suddenly they are struck with something out of nowhere.

The Milwaukee Bucks who have been displaying their clear intentions towards winning their 2nd consecutive NBA title solidified it further on Thursday when they bulldozered over the Warriors and handed them their 2nd consecutive loss.

This was much needed for the defending champs after their back-to-back defeat against the young Charlotte Hornets as it left the hulks wondering where LaMelo Ball and Co. dominated them.

The Bucks maintained their grip on the Warriors roster since the match started and by halftime, they were at 77-38. This 39 point difference is the biggest deficit that the Golden State Warriors have faced since they moved to California in 1962-63. What makes it more humiliating is that the reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and his teammate Bobby Portis combined scored 40 points by half-time which was more than Warrior’s whole score on the board.

This is definitely a master’s stroke on the Bucks part as they beat one of the elite teams this season but for the Warriors, it was no less than a humiliation. With Klay Thompson’s return to the team and the new guns that were added to the roster, the Warriors should have held their ground against the Bucks. But instead, they crumble. Stephen Curry scored 12 points,8 rebounds, and 4 assists, Andrew Wiggins contributed 16 points, Poole-9, Kuminga-15 to Warriors final score 99 against Bucks’ 118.

The Warriors have registered some great game nights but this wasn’t theirs but the Dub nation knows that the roster will surely bounce back because they have a clear shot at this season’s title.
