Warriors vs. Pacers final score: Golden State falls, 126-106

This was just not meant to be.

The Golden State Warriors fell to the Indiana Pacers 126-106 in a game that feels irrelevant because it really was irrelevant.

Like, be real: if you were in a bar with two friends who had any sort of social skills, would you watch that game or just talk through it while checking the score every so often and moving on?

Or better yet, which was more important to you: Kevin Durant’s team-highs of 27 points (on 8-for-23 shooting), game-high tying 7 assists and 3 steals or Damian Jones’ 7 points on 3-for-4 shooting?

Search your feelings - you will find the meaning of this game.

Somehow, Bojan Bogdanovic had a game-high 28 points on 11-for-13 shooting. Victor Oladipo had 21 points on 9-for-17 shooting and game-high tying 7 assists.

Anyway, Sleepy Freud summed it up best in the GameThread so I’m just gonna quote him:

No Steph, no Andre.

Pacers still have a lot to play for, Warriors have nothing. Warriors’ defensive effort has been awful, which is fine. I don’t want them flying around like madmen in a meaningless game.

And yeah, you may be underselling the Pacers — they’re statistically the 4th best team in the East, and on their home floor.

There you go — that pretty much sums up the game.

We’ll have deeper analysis on this tomorrow, but for now ...how worried are you about this loss...or any of the losses like this?
