Klay Thompson: Bucks could’ve handled streak-snapping win with more class
The Warriors’ winning streak streak finally ended with a loss to the Bucks on Saturday.
But the Warriors aren’t quite ready to let the Milwaukee loss go, especially with the Bucks visiting the Warriors tomorrow night
Milwaukee point guard Michael Carter-Williams, who recently lost his starting job, has received particular scrutiny for his reaction after this late dunk:

It might not be the entire team, but Green has company.Klay Thompson, via Ethan Sherwood Strauss of ESPN:
“There’s nothing wrong with the dunk, but the stare-down, trying to talk nasty in the game like that,” Thompson said. “And it’s like, ‘All right, you’re going to see us next Friday and in our building, too.’”
“We’re looking forward to it, man,” Thompson said. “Obviously a team that gave us our one in the loss column, and we felt they could have won with a little more class.”
The Warriors cling to every slight – real or imagined. It’s part of what makes them so great.
The Bucks – especially without Greg Monroe, who dominated Golden State on Saturday but is now injured – were already in trouble. Golden State’s extra motivation will do Milwaukee no favors.
