The Golden State Warriors finally got their first loss of the 2015-2016 season, falling to the Milwaukee Bucks 108-95 on Saturday night.
By David Hong
The Golden State Warriors started the season 24-0.
That is a record for the best start in a regular season, easily surpassing the Houston Rockets 15-0 start back in the 1993-1994 season. The Warriors also won 28 straight games dating back to the end of last year’s regular season. They were just five wins short of matching the 33-game winning streak held by the 1971-1972 Los Angeles Lakers.
On Saturday, the Warriors were never really in the game. They fell into an early hole and even though they made it close in the second half, we knew overall that it wasn’t their night. They seemed a little fatigued after their double OT victory over the Boston Celtics the night before. That may carried over in today’s game against a sub-.500 Bucks team.

Stephen Curry scored 28 points, but was two for eight from three point land. The Warriors, as a team, were only 6 for 26 from downtown in the game.
Golden State eventually had to lose, but this was still the most impressive start any team could have. They are the defending champions, but we all know how hard it is to repeat.
I’m not saying they will automatically win it all again; but looking at their start, they seem even more hungry to win another title.
With the Splash Brothers of Curry and Klay Thompson and the all around play of Draymond Green, there’s no reason why they can’t do it again.
The Warriors were not themselves on Saturday in losing for the first time this season, but there’s no doubt that they will bounce back and continue to play like a championship contender this season.
