The Golden State Warriors lost the 2019 NBA Finals.
It’s ok. The Golden State Warriors might’ve lost the 2019 Finals, but this doesn’t does devastate their dynasty. What may devastate their dynasty is the fast that during the Finals Durant and Thompson both went down with serious leg injuries.
Thompson, who had 30 points in just over 30 minutes minutes, was putting on an all-time great performance. Fans were robbed of that. When he went up for a dunk, Danny Green’s contest forced an awkward Thompson landing. It wasn’t malicious from Green.
While he initially went back to the locker room, Thompson came back, shot his free throws, and told Kerr he’d only be out a few minutes. Well, when he went back there, the five-time All-Star was said to be jumping around yet didn’t return, eventually being diagnosed with a heart-breaking torn ACL.
Losing 114-110, there were multiple things that impacted this game negatively for Golden State. At the end of the day, they had the greatest shooter of all time taking a fairly open three-pointer for game.
You can’t really argue with that. It was a good play. It was a good series, but if healthy, it may’ve ended very different and even Warriors owner Joe Lacob agreed. That said, let’s look at three reasons why the Warriors lost Game 6 which ended the 2019 NBA Finals.
