Golden State Warriors create a sad milestone for Christmas

The Golden State Warriors continued to sink deep into the frame of panic when losing heavily to the Milwaukee Bucks in the second match of the 2020/21 NBA season.

There is no miracle for this year’s Christmas Eve for the Golden State Warriors. They went on to score 99 points like the opening match of the season with the Nets and went on to receive a bold defeat. On the Milwaukee Bucks field, teachers and students Steve Kerr suffered the match completely with a 99-138 defeat.

The second biggest loser in the history of Christmas matches

The Warriors’ 39-point defeat makes them the second biggest loser in the history of Christmas matches, just behind the 1960 New York Knicks, which lost 100-162 to Syracuse National.

Through the first 2 matches, the Warriors received 2 defeats with a total difference of up to 68 points. This was the second-worst start in the club’s history, just after two consecutive defeats against the Clippers with a total gap of 71 points in the opening stage of the 1987-88 season.

Steve Kerr’s teachers and students lost in both opening matches of the season

The Milwaukee Bucks entered the game after watching a family member’s Christmas celebration tapes, and it was their motivation to revive from their opening day defeat to the Boston Celtics. Middleton shows the impressive performance when scoring 31 points, reaching FG 10-15 and 3FG up to 6-8. In total, in the first two games of the season, he scored 58 points.

Giannis Antetokounmpo reached a double-double with 15 points and 13 rebounds. Although not in high form, only successfully throwing 4 out of 15 shots, but that was enough for the Bucks to crush the visitors. Deer swarm successfully takes up to 20 out of 37 3-point shots, while Golden State Warriors only perform 10-45.

Draymond Green continued to sit out due to injury. Steph Curry and James Wiseman have 19 and 18 points, respectively. In this match, Curry surpassed Rick Barry to become the second most scoring player in the Warriors history. However, the long throw performance of just 2-10 is unlikely to make him happy.

Houston Rockets wanted to trade Harden as soon as possible

James Harden’s future with the Houston Rockets has been a hot topic in the NBA world over the past week. First, Houston shared that they are in no rush to trade James Harden even though the 2018 NBA MVP wants to move to another team. However, things seem to have changed.

According to the latest sharing of prestigious journalist Adrian Wojnarowski, Houston Rockets now wants to move James Harden away sooner. The reason comes from the team that is afraid of the negative energy that Harden shows during a time when he cannot meet the need to leave. This is something that can completely affect the team’s dressing room.

The Rockets are negotiating more with other teams, not just Brooklyn or Philadelphia. They began to gather information from teams from both the East and the West. Brooklyn and Philly are the two brightest options, but the door is open to any other team that wants the service of James Harden.

Houston is looking to make the deal sooner

This will support the team to follow the new system and path that new captain Stephen Silas is drawing for the Rockets. The important thing at the moment is that the team needs to find a suitable offer and it does not necessarily extend the team’s future. Rockets have a list of what they want.

Houston Rockets now wants to move James Harden away sooner

With the number of years remaining in the contract of James Harden, Houston Rockets is the party that takes the full initiative. They may not trade Harden or choose another time to break the trade for the next two years.

However, Woj’s new information shows that the Rockets do not want to retain a superstar who is not interested in playing. This can harm the dressing room and the overall morale of the team. After all, it wouldn’t be a surprise if James Harden was traded to another team in the next few days, just before the start of the new season.

According to ESPN journalists Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne, many teams have contacted the Houston Rockets to offer to trade for James Harden. The newest and most exciting development came this morning, coming from one of James’s favorite destinations.

The ESPN journalist duo reported that the Philadelphia 76ers were ready to put Ben Simmons on the table to discuss James Harden. However, the two sides did not reach a common voice after the first hours of discussion. Immediately after this information was released, the 76ers’ professional chairman Daryl Morey denied it.

The season has not yet started, the Boston Celtics have suffered injuries

Kemba Walker’s injury first appeared in February at the All-Star week, leaving him in constant pain for a long time. During the offseason, the Boston Celtics lost striker Gordon Hayward to Charlotte Hornets. Now, they will not have the services of another All-Star defender in the squad, Kemba Walker.

According to the team medical team, Kemba recently injected a stem cell shot into the left knee to complete the injury recovery process.

On additional notes by the team, Kemba Walker has been consulting with many experts since early October. Eventually, he accepted the stem cell injection and went into a 12-week “knee workout” that leaves Walker sitting out in 2020 and into early January.

The former defender of Charlotte Hornets is expected to return to training in mid-December with the Boston Celtics. After that, the medical team will monitor Kemba’s injury and set a time to return for this player.
