The Golden State Warriors botched their chance to close out their NBA Playoffs first-round series against the Sacramento Kings on Friday night. With Stephen Curry and Co. up 3-2 in the series, they had a golden opportunity to end this opening-round encounter with a win on their home floor. Instead, it was the Kings who stepped up in Game 6, resulting in a 118-99 victory for the road team.

It was a failed opportunity for the Warriors, and fans were quick to point this out. Unfortunately for him, Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo saw his name dragged into Golden State's loss amid the former back-to-back MVP's now-infamous “failure” comments pertaining to Milwaukee's shocking series loss to the Miami Heat.

Kendrick Pekins, who himself hasn't been shy about calling our Antetokounmpo for his remarks, was one of the first to make the savage reference to the Warriors' loss on Friday night:

In case you missed it, this was Giannis' full quote after he was asked if he felt the Bucks' season was a failure following their Game 5 loss to Jimmy Butler and the Heat on Wednesday:

“It’s not a failure, it’s steps to success. There’s always steps to it. Michael Jordan played 15 years, won six championships. The other nine years was a failure? … There’s no failure in sports. There’s good days, bad days. Some days you are able to be successful, some days you’re not. … That’s what sports is about. You don’t always win,” Giannis said.

Antetokounmpo has taken a lot of stick for his comments, and they have now transcended to the Warriors losing Game 6 against the Kings. The only difference is that Golden State lives to fight another day in Game 7 on Sunday, while Giannis will have no other choice but to watch the playoffs from the comfort of his own home.
