A brief history of embarrassing losses in great seasons

A brief history of embarrassing losses in great seasons

Photo by Garrett Ellwood/NBAE via Every great season has them. The Golden State Warriors had a bad loss on Sunday. A really, really, really bad loss. An embarrassing loss. A pathetic loss. I’m sure you’ve publicly and privately said about 25 other adjectives and qualifiers for said loss, a 52-point shellacking at the hands of the Eastern Conference’s elite, the Boston Celtics, which brought their eight-game road win streak to a rubber-burning screech of a halt. Bad losses happen. Hell, really bad losses happen. Admittedly not usually like this — this was only...

Brooklyn Nets flush momentum down toilet, lose to Memphis Grizzlies 106-102

Photo by Elsa/ The Nets came crashing down from a great weekend with a serious case of the Mondays. Who among us, right? Kevin Ollie gave a standard, coach-speak answer when asked a standard, reporter-speak question to lead off his pregame presser on Monday night. The Brooklyn Nets were set to host a depleted Memphis Grizzlies team they had beat by 25 a week earlier, and this time, Memphis wouldn’t even have Jaren Jackson Jr. So when Meghan Triplett of YES Network asked Ollie about avoiding a let-down against such a bad team — not in those words, of course —...

Rapid Recap: Bucks 113, Clippers 106

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports An absolutely huge win for the Milwaukee Bucks In a come-from-behind victory, the Milwaukee Bucks knocked off the Los Angeles Clippers at home without Giannis Antetokounmpo, 113-106. NBA.com Box Score The Bucks knew this would be even more of a challenge when it was announced they’d be without Giannis Antetokounmpo. Things started out on the right foot, but James Harden then started scoring baskets, providing the Clippers with a lead they’d carry into the second quarter, 35-25. Despite Damian Lillard’s strong second quarter, the...

Should the Celtics win some end of season awards? (NBA Reacts)

Photo By Winslow Townson/ MVP, Coach of the Year, Executive of the Year As part of the SBN Reacts series, I asked you about the Celtics chances of winning some end of season awards. Here’s what you came up with. A lot has been made about Tatum’s chances of winning MVP. He just won Player of the Month and most think he’ll be a top 5 finalist for the award. But he’s probably going to have a tough time beating out Jokic or SGA at this point. Then again, if the Celtics keep winning in dominating fashion, you never know. I’m clearly biased, but I...
