Things did not go well for Golden State on Monday night.
The Warriors fell to the Memphis Grizzlies by a score of 123-95, marking the sixth loss in their last seven games. Without top scorer Steph Curry in the lineup, Golden State struggled from the field, shooting just 31% from three-point land and scoring only 37 points in the first half.
To put that in perspective, the Grizzlies exploded for 43 points in the second quarter, alone. Memphis led by as many as 37 points in the final period.
A typically stout Golden State defense allowed a Ja Morant-less Memphis team to run the floor possession after possession in the blowout loss. The poor effort finally got to Warriors head coach Steve Kerr with his team down by 26 points at the half.
Kerr went completely mental on the officiating crew with the first half coming to a close. The outburst quickly landed the coach a double tech and ensuing ejection.

Steve Kerr was just ejected leaving the floor at halftime. Went after the referee following what it seemed like he thought was goaltend. Two technicals. Warriors down 63-37 at halftime in Memphis. They're fading toward a 1-4 road trip.
