This shouldn’t be an overly choppy feed for those who’ve been watching the team closely over the past few years, but are in the spotlight on Tuesday’s opening stages in Brooklyn and Christmas in Milwaukee have the facts right to a national audience pushed in the face

At those losses, where they were beaten by an average of 325 points, the Warriors went 20 out of 78 from 3-point range (256%) which is a far cry from the long-range accuracy of the Warriors when they hit the NBA for five consecutive periods Traveling to the NBA finals from 2015-19 revolutionized

Head Coach Steve Kerr asked about the most important part of the Warriors’ shooting during the first two losses of the season: “All of the above”

“It is an execution as a five-man group,” he said, “Cutting, sifting and a good distance lead to good shots. We’re not close to that yet. There is still a lot of work to be done”


The Hall of Fame player who has become one of the most entertaining mouthpieces in the league has consistently prevailed against the Warriors during his dynastic run. He said, “A jump shooting team couldn’t win a title”

The Warriors won three, but that’s because Barkley left out a huge caveat, meaning that a terrible jump-shooting team couldn’t win a title

After the 3-point shooting from 2015 to 19 among the top 3 of the league – never below 383% – the warriors shot 334% in the last season until 29 Place

Each of the Warriors’ NBA final teams had multiple 3-point shooters over that five-year period, hitting the 38% mark.Only the 2017 roster had fewer than three such players in 2016, when they made a notable 41 6% shot as a team they had six players shoot better than 38%

After Klay Thompson is out for the season to rehabilitate a torn Achilles, the Warriors now have a dead-eye shooter and Stephen Curry, just 3 points away from Reggie Miller and Ray Allen and the only player in the NBA history with 2500 career 3-a-side plays this season is 4 against 20

If the warriors’ defenses are broken they cannot transition to receive easy shots on the offense.If no one pressures the opponent’s defenses with hard cuts and dives, there is no reason to call the warriors for 3 -Leave pointer open

Then there is the last point. If a player gets an open shot in rhythm, he has to take it

Andrew Wiggins and Kelly Oubre Jr Combined To Go 0-for-9 From 3-Point Range Against Milwaukee According to ESPN Stats & Info, Oubre is the first player in NBA history to go out of 3-point in his team’s first two games in a season -Range 0:11 went

Desperate for shooting assistance after the Warriors’ wings went 2:12 from 3-point distance in the Brooklyn game, Kerr chose Mychal Mulder and Jordan Poole for longer minutes. Mulder and Poole went 2:12 against Milwaukee: 10

The Bucks has left the Warriors 54 behind 9% to 343% from the field and 541% to 222% from the 3-point range

“We look decent,” Curry said, “I think we’re used to some of these possessions when you get a drive and a kick and someone gets an open look Everyone is celebrating and feeling good We miss these possessions, however I think the overall finish will perhaps allow some easier glimpse into the basket or into the middle class ”

Curry tactfully told you what a good shot was versus a great shot Wiggins shot 332% out of 3 point range during his career, and Oubre shot 327% for Draymond Green it’s 319% and for Eric Paschall it is 292%

For the warriors to compete, all of these guys must score a goal Neither of them should make a living on the 3-point line

At least not in possession of a half court early Kerr said the ball had to move in offensive sets and someone had to put pressure on the defense and get them mixed up and reacting before an open 3-pointer is thrown

For the last six minutes of Friday in the second quarter, the Warriors had Curry repeatedly and successfully screened tall by James Wiseman for Curry’s ability to shoot from 30 feet and Wiseman’s threat to marginalize Milwaukee for lobs dive to focus all five players on the two-man game

Kerr said it was too taxing to ask Curry and Wiseman to do this 48 minutes a night, but he might have found an answer: Get the attention of an entire opposing defense with these two players.

It is much easier to play three-to-zero against defenders who are recovering than to have contested threesomes with players who do not shoot consistently
