Morning Rewind, 12/9: The Warriors still can't lose

Vogel on Pacers' Loss to Now-23-0 Warriors
Vogel on Pacers' Loss to Now-23-0 Warriors

Going into Tuesday, the Indiana Pacers were slated as the team that could finally upend the Golden State Warriors and their record-setting 22-game winning streak to begin the season.

That was cute.

All Golden State did to respond was continue what they'd been doing the entire season: stomp them out from the opening whistle and bury them in a hole that was impossible to crawl out of. After a 22-0 run by the Warriors in the second quarter, and led by 32 during the third quarter.

They held leads of 22 in the second quarter, 32 in the third, and began the final period with a 28-point advantage. They led by 21 with a little more than seven minutes to go before Indiana cut the lead down in the final ticks.

Golden State finally got a long-awaited "Klay Thompson game." With Stephen Curry uncharacteristically struggling from the outside, Thompson made 10 of his 16 three-pointers to go along with seven rebounds and six assists, totaling 39 points. Curry had 10 assists and three steals as well.

And the Warriors did that thing where they don't even try to rebound because they just know the shot is going in.


Paul George continued his fascinating comeback year in a losing effort, going for 33 points, eight rebounds and six assists on 11-of-27 shooting.

The Warriors are 23-0, as unfathomable as it seems. And what's scarier: There may not be a loss in sight for the next few weeks.

Warriors 131, Pacers 123
