22 missed threes by Warriors’ Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson vs. Suns were most by ‘Splash Brothers’
The Dubs displayed poor shooting against the Suns, particularly Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, who combined to miss 22 3-pointers in the loss. This is the most misses the Splash Brothers have combined to commit over the course of their careers with Golden State.
Warriors All-Stars Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry combined to miss 22 threes against Phoenix. That's the most missed threes in any game by The Splash Brothers, according to @ESPNStatsInfo.

Thompson finished with 28 points, while Curry had 18 markers. Both of them shot 4-11 from behind the arc.
Klay actually had a more disappointing performance of the two. He hit back-to-back triples in the first three minutes of the game, which means he was 2 for 13 the rest of the game.
This is also unusual for the Warriors, who usually shoot well at the Oracle Arena.
Golden State is aspiring to win their third straight title, but for some reason, they continue to struggle as they gear-up for the playoffs. If they continue to lose against mid-tier and non-playoff teams, they could lose homecourt advantage during the crucial parts of the postseason.
However, the Warriors are experienced enough to know how to bounce back from bumps in the road like this, and they will certainly make the necessary adjustments to be able to turn the season around and remind everyone that they are not the two-time defending champions for nothing.
