Live updates: Warriors vs. Bucks on Friday night
Get live updates, news and analysis on Friday at 5 p.m. when the Warriors begin a five-game road trip in Milwaukee, where they’ll take on the Jason Kidd-coached Bucks.
The Warriors (33-9) had some unflattering things to say about their efforts on defense during their stunning 125-106 loss to the Clippers at home on Wednesday. Not only did they allow Lou Williams to score 50 points, the Warriors have allowed their last eight opponents to score more than 100 points. They haven’t kept a team under 100 since Christmas Day against the Cavaliers.
Stephen Curry (ankle tweak) is listed as questionable Friday and is more likely to play Saturday in Toronto. His backcourt mate, Klay Thompson, will be back after sitting out to rest during Wednesday’s debacle.
The Bucks (22-18) won’t be any easier for the Warriors to contain, especially with All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo (28.7 points per game). He scored 26 points Wednesday when the Bucks rallied for a 110-103 win over the Orlando Magic.
