Golden State Warriors Lose First Game Of The Season With Superstar Kevin Durant

With without a doubt the biggest move of the offseason, the Golden State Warriors acquired Kevin Durant in free agency, effectively making them the most hated team in the NBA. Hated because they were viewed as a powerhouse team that seemed to be unbeatable.

The San Antonio Spurs had another point of view last night. A season removed from one of the all-time greats retiring in Tim Duncan, the Spurs wanted to show that they still had what it takes to be a championship team. With their own set of superstars in Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge, they went out in yesterday’s season opener with a bang.

They were up by 11 points after the first quarter and increased that margin to 18 at the half. They never relinquished the lead. They ended up blowing out the “unbeatable” Warriors team 129-100.

The Warriors, after winning their first 24 games last season, start the season 0-1. Their record breaking 73-9 season last year seems to be out of reach. But let’s be honest, it’s only 1 game and anything can happen the rest of the way.
