The Warriors snapped two important streaks Tuesday night.
In a 104-96 loss to the Phoenix Suns at Footprint Center, the Warriors had both their seven-game win streak and their streak of scoring at least 100 points in each of their previous 20 games this season snapped.
Consistent offensive production was a big reason why the Warriors were able to start the season 18-2, and its absence was a big reason why they lost Tuesday night.
In each of their previous two losses to the Memphis Grizzlies on Oct. 28 and the Charlotte Hornets on Nov. 14, the Warriors just barely scored 100 points, with 101 and 102 points, respectively.
The Warriors have proven themselves to be an elite defensive team, which certainly helps them continue to win games, even when their offense struggles.
Tuesday night, though, they just so happened to run into the buzz saw that was the Suns, who are now winners of 17 straight games.
Golden State will immediately turn around and play Phoenix once more on Friday night at Chase Center.
