However, this time Golden State had a healthy Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green.

The Warriors who visited Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Thursday needed no sarcastic quote marks around their name. Golden State briefly took a small lead early in the second. They beat the Warriors, the real Warriors, even worse than they did in Oakland.

But it was the play of the Indiana Pacers on Thursday night that looked more like a team laden with All-Stars. They were the ones to set the tone and dictate the pace, something preached by Coach of the Year candidate Nate McMillan beforehand.

"I thought it was a big test tonight".

"We're the real deal", Lillard said, per ESPN's Chris Haynes.

"I think first of all we did a great job defensively", Bogdanovic said. Carter, who was given a flagrant foul 1, knelt nearby as medical personnel from both teams along with Golden State coach Steve Kerr rushed onto the court.

"I'm embarrassed", Kerr told reporters (via the East Bay Times). I mean I know this game doesn't mean anything in the seeding. It's an embarrassing effort and a pathetic effort.

The Warriors' effort and performance said otherwise. After an Oladipo 3-pointer rimmed out, Young rebounded and converted a layup, then Oladipo made his first steal of the night, leading to a Bogdanovic layup that put the Pacers ahead by 14.

Indiana's offense was impressive throughout.

Durant had 27 points, five rebounds and seven assists, and Thompson finished with 16 as Golden State's three-game winning streak ended. The Pacers held the potent Warriors to 44.6 percent shooting.

The sharpshooting Nets were 19 of 39 from 3-point range. One of the best matches in his career gave Bogdan Bogdanovich, who converted 11 of 13 shots from the game.

Oladipo was happy with the win but said the team has higher goals.

By the time the end of the first half rolled around, IN had an 11-point lead, 62-51.

McCaw has missed the Warriors' two games since the fall. They helped make up for Durant's 2-for-13 shooting in the second half.

Golden State cut the deficit in half by scoring the first 10 points of the fourth quarter before in answered with 17-1 run to regain control. Despite their efforts, the Warriors were never close to the Pacers after the second half, with the Eastern Conference side now boasting six wins in seven games against them this regular season. In the span of 1 minute, 40 seconds to start the fourth quarter, Golden State cut Indiana's lead in half.
