The Golden State Warriors are an experienced team used to overcoming adversity, so it’s not a typical event for the reigning NBA champion to lose his composure.

But that’s exactly what happened to the Warriors in Tuesday’s 128-111 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks at the Fiserv Forum. Frustrated with the umpires early in the game, Golden State never recovered, falling as much as 26 behind in the blowout.

The whistles started flying early and often as the Warriors were called out for three technical fouls in the first quarter alone. Golden State was unhappy with the free-throw disparity, as none of their players made it to the line by the end of the second quarter.

The Warriors hit just 19 free throws that night, while Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo shot 17 alone on his way to a game-high 30 points.

Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry was among those suffering a technical foul when he surprisingly vented his anger after a referee failed to call what he believed to be an obvious foul on a three-pointer. Golden State ended with five technicians while three were called to Milwaukee.

Online fans berated the Warriors for letting the refs scrap them in a thrilling duel against an Eastern Conference powerhouse:

Golden State of Mind @unstoppable babe

Warriors have gone cold as ice and let the refs get to them

At 14-14, Golden State has been struggling to find consistency this season. Maybe the slow start is just a championship hangover, but that’s where it starts to get worrying.

The Warriors have expectations of fighting for a title again, but there are several issues they must fix if they are to achieve their goal.

Golden State will try to recover in the second matchup of its six-game road trip Wednesday against the Indiana Pacers (14-14).
