Warriors make history, start five rookies, lose finale

Friday, April 27, 2012

The Lost Season ended as projected last night at Oracle, with the Warriors losing the 22nd of their last 27 games, since the Monta Ellis trade. And how did they manage to lose 107-101 to a San Antonio team that rested three of its best players for the playoffs? By becoming the first team in modern NBA history to start five rookies in a game. And it worked. The W’s finish in a tie with Toronto as the 7th worst team in basketball, and await today’s random drawing to see whether they’ll be deemed 7th (and keep their first-round draft pick) or 8th (and don’t).
