With the plethora of Arizona Wildcats connections, the Golden State Warriors have become the unofficial NBA team of this here Arizona site, and it is with heavy hearts that we say they lost their first game of the year on Saturday to the Milwaukee Bucks. Andre Iguodala only scored two points in 28 minutes, thanks to a lowly 1-9 shooting, 0-4 from three. He did have nine rebounds, five assists and two steals though.
