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.

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.

Toronto Raptors is about to make their final home option

The impact of COVID-19 makes it difficult for the Toronto Raptors to play in Canada next season. They are about to make their final home option. One of the biggest problems for the NBA next season will be dealing with COVID-19.

The unfavorable disease situation could make international flights from the US to Canada unfavorable and that directly affects the only Canadian team in the NBA – Toronto Raptors. Before the final decision of the Organizing Committee, the Raptors were actively hunting for places that could become the new home field.

Initially, this team was suggested to play in Kansas or Louisville. However, the negotiations in Kansas did not progress, while the Toronto Raptors players did not want to go to Louisville because this was the site of the Breonna Taylor murder.

Raptors are likely to leave the Scotiabank Arena next season

It seems that GM Masai Ujiri and his associates have found a suitable location for a new home field, that is, Newark, New Jersey. The Toronto Raptors are negotiating to play at the Prudential Center with a capacity of 19,000 seats.

Geographically, this is the perfect choice as the Raptors play in the Atlantic with football teams like the Boston Celtics, Brooklyn Nets, New York Knicks, or the Philadelphia 76ers. New Jersey is very close to the headquarters of these clubs, reducing pressure to move.

Besides, New Jersey is a not small market and was also the place where the Nets football team chose to be home for a long time. The re-emergence of a local football team can revive the love of NBA in the hearts of fans here, thereby increasing Raptor’s income during a difficult year.

Prudential Center is currently the home ground for the New Jersey Devils Ice Hockey team The Raptors are not the only professional sports team to bring home from Canada to the US because of the COVID-19. At the American Major, Toronto Blue Jays played most of their home games last season in New York.

Steve Kerr consider the 2019-20 NBA season to be over

Basketball coach Steve Kerr and the Golden State Warriors say that they did not imply that the 2019-20 season will not return. However, the results were not so good that led the team management to look forward to the future.

After the Golden State Warriors were swept away by a traumatic storm during the 2019-20 season, coach Steve Kerr watched helplessly as his team plummeted to the bottom in both the Western rankings and among the 30 NBA teams.

Now that the tournament organizers are working on ways to get the basketball back, the 54-year-old American captain confirms that Warriors are likely to have abandoned the 2019-20 season. At the direction of the coaching staff, every member of Golden State has entered the offseason to prepare the first preparations for the following season.

To avoid misleading, coach Steve Kerr added that he did not imply that the 2019-20 season will not return. The above instructions are circulated internally and we will strictly abide by the rules of the tournament if the matches are held again.

This season seems to be over for coach Steve Kerr and Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors currently have a record of 15 victories and 50 defeats, an achievement that would certainly make Stephen Curry and his teammates miss the Playoffs round if the tournament is held again. This result makes the decision of the Warriors leadership more sensible as they want to give up this season as soon as possible.

“We are still ready for the tournament to come back and the team will play a few matches. But with the team’s performance not so bright, it will be better if we look to the future,” said coach Steve Kerr. “Either way, our influence doesn’t mean much to the common ground this season.”
