Any particular reason your threads are so much longer when the team loses, Tom.

I just hope Monta has a bruise and that he will okay. He looked great last night and he is quietly becoming a solid rebounder. He had ten boards last night.

Where was the defense? No one played any. No one can keep a player in front of himself and no one plays help defense. That is basic stuff.
The rebounding was attrocious. Where has Beidrins been? Yeah, I know he is tired and all that crap, but he has been non-existent of late and the Warriors are not rebounding and give up way too many second chance points.
The telling stat of the night, the Warriors shoot 58% in the first half to the Hawks 53% and yet they trailed by 14. How is that? I can tell you, second chance points, turnovers and quite simply no defensive effort on the Warriors part.
This team is toast this season. No chance on the playoffs. We can't worry about the other teams gunning for the 8th spot if the Warriors themselves can't win a game. I will be shocked if they win one of their next four road games.
The first quarter was good with nice passing, lots of assists and a decent (I use that term loosely) effort on defense. However, the second quarter the passing stopped and defending was even worse in than the first quarter and unfortunately, that trend carried over the rest of the game.
