And that’s about all there is to say about it.
If you’re not a fan of the Warriors, it was a highly entertaining game, because 20-year old sensation Luka Doncic performed a mesmerizing rendition of an older sibling toying with their younger sibling.
Doncic had 22 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists.
Oh wait. That was just in the first quarter.
Doncic actually had 33 points on 10-11 shooting, with 5 rebounds and 6 assists.
Oh wait. That was just in the first half.
Doncic actually finished with 35 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists, despite only playing 26 minutes. That was all he needed to do to guarantee the Warriors suffered their largest loss in quite some time.
The final score? 142-94. Ohhhhh buddy. Would you believe me if I said it wasn’t that close?
Let’s run some Doncic highlights, because a Google search for “Warriors highlights” yielded the “no results found” error.

I mean, come on, guy.
Draymond Green sat for the Warriors, joining All-Stars Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and D’Angelo Russell on the injury list. The Warriors dressed the minimum of eight players. Their starting lineup was Ky Bowman, Alec Burks, Glenn Robinson III, Eric Paschall, and Willie Cauley-Stein. All things considered, a 48-point loss is about the best thing you could hope for.
Paschall led the way with 22 points and 7 rebounds, while undrafted rookie Bowman had 16 points on 7-10 shooting. Six of the Warriors eight players scored in double figures, so if you’re looking for silver linings, there you go.
There aren’t any others, though.
