OAKLAND -- The Warriors' first loss at home this season led to a hush after the final buzzer.

The crowd at Oracle Arena was stunned into silence after potential game-tying 3-point attempts from Stephen Curry and Harrison Barnes missed.

The Boston Celtics came into the building and stopped the Warriors' NBA-record 54-game regular-season home winning streak with a 109-106 victory Friday.

"It's a weird feeling," Curry said. "We've just got to be able to move on from it."

Curry said he got a good look in the final seconds. Barnes, who had hit a 3-pointer with 10.2 seconds left to pull the Warriors within a point, also was off the mark at the buzzer.

The Warriors fell to 36-1 at Oracle this season, leaving the San Antonio Spurs as the last remaining undefeated team at home. Never before has an NBA team gone undefeated at home in the regular season.

Coach Steve Kerr expressed pride in the 54-game streak, as the Warriors hadn't lost in a regular-season game at home in 430 days -- they fell 113-111 in overtime to the Chicago Bulls on Jan. 27, 2015.

The 68-8 Warriors will have to win five of their remaining six games to break the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' single-season record of 72 wins.

"We still have an opportunity to do some special things," Warriors guard Shaun Livingston said.


To make matters worse for the Warriors, they saw starting center Andrew Bogut leave the game in the third quarter after getting hit in the ribs. X-rays were negative, but he is scheduled to be evaluated further.

Curry finished with 29 points, making eight 3-pointers, but committed a season-worst nine turnovers.

He struggled mightily in the first half, committing seven of the Warriors' 13 turnovers including five in the first quarter alone. The Warriors finished with 22 turnovers.

"We weren't crisp with our passing and our cutting and our screening," Kerr said. "The only way you're going to beat that kind of defense is by really having a lot of force and precision, and we had none of that."

With the Warriors trailing 71-66, Curry went on a 3-point binge. He hit a shot from long distance, made three free throws after getting fouled outside the arc, and added another trifecta to tie the score at 75. Another 3-pointer -- his eighth of the game -- gave the Warriors a 79-78 lead.

Still, the Celtics went into the fourth nursing an 82-79 lead and then, with the Warriors' starters mainly on the bench, went on an 11-2 run to push the lead to 10 points.

Isaiah Thomas finished with a team-high 22 points, Evan Turner added 21, and Jared Sullinger had 20 points and 12 rebounds. Boston won despite playing on the second game of a back-to-back without third-leading scorer and rebounder Jae Crowder, who was rested.

"When you play a team that's great on the perimeter defensively, they're going to get underneath you and take you out off your cuts, you have to be the aggressor," Kerr said.

"I thought the whole game until maybe the last five minutes, Boston was the aggressor."

Draymond Green completed a 3-point play and made a 3-pointer to cut the Celtics' lead to 99-94, and his offensive rebound and putback made it a one-possession game.

Green's eight straight points weren't enough to fuel the Warriors.

Before the game, he was apparently locked in and in no mood for joking around on April Fools' Day.

Kerr's prank at the team's pregame shootaround fell flat, as the coach attempted to trick his All-Star forward into thinking he would be rested for the game.

"I didn't get much of a laugh, and Draymond glared at me," Kerr said. "I told him I was going to give him the night off because he needed to rest. He just glared at me, and I said 'April Fools',' and nobody laughed.

"They usually go over better than that, but just crickets," Kerr added of his jokes. "Nothing."

The crickets would come back after the game as well.
