With a 120-90 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday, it appears the Golden State Warriors briefly forgot themselves as their MVP forgot his form. Stephen Curry had another substandard game, and the Warriors fell behind quickly, unable to right themselves against a galvanized foe.
Wednesday’s Game 3 was something of a reversal from last season, as a desperate Cavs team went small and kept its season alive. Cleveland started the game with Richard Jefferson in place of the concussed Kevin Love — a move that might just be prudent, whether Love is healthy or not. The Warriors, somewhat stubbornly, stayed big with Andrew Bogut at center.
