The Warriors who visited Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Thursday needed no sarcastic quote marks around their name. Like when Thaddeus Young threw down a thunderous dunk.
Bogdanovic made 11 of 13 shots, including 6 of 7 3-point attempts as the Pacers sank 15 of 29 shots from beyond the arc. Oladipo extended his streak of consecutive games with a steal to 62. If the Pacers win their final three games, will see this team have 50 wins on the season.
Last June, the Golden State Warriors became NBA Champs for the second time in three years, but unlike the first time around, the majority of the team did not like who was in office and most had no intentions of visiting the White House.
By any measure, the Pacers were impressive.
Durant scored 15 points in the first quarter, then added nine in the second to help the Warriors take a 57-47 advantage at the break. 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. While no one is 100 percent at this point of a season, nobody is on the injury report - knock on wood - and that's huge a week before the playoffs.

The 35-year-old country singer, a seven-time Grammy victor , has her hair in a topknot in the revealing photo. The singer said the fall left her "not quite looking the same" and was a "freak random accident".
Following the game, Kerr was visibly displeased with his side's performance, telling reporters they failed to display a real effort to win, even if any further wins or losses won't affect their No. 2 standing in the Western Conference, with the Houston Rockets clinching top spot last month. That's a really good team.
"I think first of all we did a great job defensively", Bogdanovic said.
McCaw has missed the Warriors' two games since the fall.
The Pacers ended any uncertainty after the Warriors closed to 97-87 with about 10 minutes left. Bojan Bogdanovic was the surprise of the night for the Pacers as he scored a game-high 28 points and was an efficient 11-13 from the field. "I'm embarrassed. I know this game doesn't mean anything in the seeding (for Golden State), but the playoffs start next week". It was an embarrassing effort.
