If Golden State fans are looking for reasons to take solace in the humiliating 143:113 defeat in Brooklyn, then they have ended their road trip and will now begin an eight-game home streak.
The defeat in Brooklyn was the fifth loss in six away games, with the champion's overall away record this season being an embarrassing 16:3, when the losses at the beginning of the season were with a full squad.
Golden State is missing three top five players tonight (Curry, Wiggins and Green) but that's no excuse for the fact that they scored 91 points in the first half ex-Durant.

"You're as bad as your balance sheet shows you are," Steve Kerr said after the game, it's been a bad road trip.
We have less than 50 percent success (18:15) and we have to find a way to fix it."
Golden State trailed by 29 in the first quarter, the second-largest deficit in its history in this quarter. On the other hand, Brooklyn recorded a club record 91 points in one half, even though it was also missing its No. 2 scorer Kyrie Irving. It also set a club record when it led by 40 points in the first half.
The bad news for the Warriors is that it is not yet clear when Steph Curry will return and without him the business just doesn't work. "You have to think In a calm manner and to understand what to do and not to riot," analyzed Draymond Green who contributed only 2 points in this game, "We must play correctly and correct our mistakes.
We need to understand where we are."
"We've been taking good shots all season," Durant said after the seventh straight victory, "I think now the shots are starting to come in. We're shooting with confidence and making good moves on offense. Tonight was one of those successful nights.
