NBA news: Pundit believes Golden State Warriors are ‘VULNERABLE’ – this is why | Other | Sport

That is the view of ESPN pundit Jalen Rose.

The Warriors suffered their third defeat of the season on Monday night as they went down in overtime to the LA Clippers.

With the score level at the end of regulation, the Clippers pulled away in OT and won 121-116.

It was the second game Curry had missed since suffering a groin injury in training on Friday.

He looks set to miss the Warriors’ game at the Atlanta Hawks tonight as well, due to the groin strain.

And Rose believes that his absence, and the Warriors’ subsequent loss, shows that the team is weak without him.

“It really shows the vulnerability of the Warriors without Steph Curry,” he said.

“I know some feel like they’ve ruined basketball.

“But when he doesn’t play, they lose 40 percent of the time.

“Maybe even 60 percent of the time.”

Warriors star Draymond Green made highlights for all the wrong reasons as he made a game-defining mistake at the end of regulation.

With the game level, Green collected a rebound, before storming up the other end of the court and colliding with a wall of Clippers defenders.

Kevin Durant was screaming for the ball, but Green instead tried to go alone.

And Rose explained that if that happened again, with Curry in the team, the result would have been different.

“So, Draymond had missed a few games due to injury, he returned to the line-up, they struggled without him,” he added.

“In this instance, it was just him trying to do too much.

“If this happened again, he 100 percent gives the ball to Steph or KD.”
