The Warriors, who set an NBA record by winning their first 24 games, suffered a 108-95 loss at Milwaukee on Saturday night.
“What they did to start this season, there’s no reason for anyone to hang their head in that locker room for losing that game,” Golden State interim coach Luke Walton said. “They’ve been incredible all year. Losses are going to come. We didn’t have it tonight. That’s why is so hard to do what these guys have done so far. Tonight it caught up to us. We didn’t have our shots falling, we were a little slow on our defensive rotations, and that happens. It takes nothing away from what they did to start the season.

Sources: Nets Interested in Bradley Beal
Immersed in their championship window, the Brooklyn Nets are in the market for a third star and have internally discussed avenues of acquiring Wizards guard Bradley Beal, the Daily News has learned.
It’s unclear whether Beal will become available, though his circumstances have prompted speculation. The two-way guard is among the league’s highest-paid players and on a Wizards team with a low ceiling. He signed a two-year, $72 million extension last year that quelled trade rumors but Washinton (24-40) is again lottery-bound.
Sources: Disney World ‘frontrunner’ to Host NBA Return, Mid-July Return ‘most popular’
Orlando’s Walt Disney World Resort is the clear frontrunner to become the NBA’s playing site to resume the 2019-20 season amid the coronavirus pandemic, sources told The Athletic.
The NBA is in serious discussions with Disney about the property, which has gained clear momentum over cities such as Las Vegas, sources said. It remains unclear when the games would begin, but multiple sources say the prospect of players fully training in mid-June and playing by mid-July has been the most popular and possible scenario discussed. NBA commissioner Adam Silver told the Board of Governors on May 12 that he aims to decide on the season in two-to-four weeks, and that he wants to wait as long as he can to make final decisions.
