NBA Analytics Network

The Golden State Warriors’ battle on the road continued through Wednesday night’s NBA action as they lost 125-119 to the Indiana Pacers. Golden State is now 14-15 on the season and their road record has fallen to 2-13. Even worse, it’s going to be much more difficult for the Warriors.

In addition to losing the game to the Pacers, the Warriors also lost star point guard Stephen Curry to a shoulder injury. Curry injured his left shoulder trying to sweep the ball away from Jalen Smith in the third quarter. He went back down the field and grabbed his left shoulder, leading to the Warriors calling a timeout to get him off the field.

He was checked out by trainers on the bench before entering the dressing room. He was officially ruled out in the fourth quarter and will miss many games. According to ESPN’s Adrian WojnarowskiCurry will miss a few weeks due to the injury.

This is a devastating blow to the Warriors as they have struggled mightily with Curry in the lineup. He carried the team against Indiana and scored 38 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one block in just 30 minutes.

It’s hard to imagine where Golden State would have been this season without him in the lineup, and sadly we’ll find out in the coming weeks. Replacing Curry is normally a tall order given the impact he has on the game, but when he’s playing at the level he’s been, it’s an impossible feat.

Steve Kerr will have to hope his other proven players like Andrew Wiggins, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole can pick up the slack. This is a golden opportunity for one of the young players to showcase their skills and prove to Kerr that they should be on full-time for the rest of the season.
