Golden State Warriors All-Star swingman Klay Thompson called Sunday night’s 115-111 defeat to the Phoenix Suns the “worst of the season” and then asked for more energy from the Oracle Arena fans down the stretch.

“It wasn’t pretty,” Thompson said after the Warriors combined to shoot 10-for-43 from beyond the 3-point arc. “Probably [our] worst loss of the season, unfortunately.”

The Warriors are now 24-10 at home this season in the final year at Oracle.

“It’s a long season,” Thompson said. “And we’ve been playing a lot of basketball for five years now, so you’re not going to be perfect for 82 games — we’ve had too many missteps — but at the end of the day, that’s the first time we’ve lost to that team in 19 games. So it’s ugly but … I expect our crowd to be little more into it, too. Like, I know it’s not the playoffs, but it is our last go-around at Oracle. Least you can stand up or something when we make a good play, especially in the beginning. We need that energy, especially this time of the year. It’s hard to conjure up energy every single night ’cause you’re looking forward to the playoffs and that run.

“So we expect our fans to kind of bring that from the jump. … It’s like us, though. You can’t bring it every night, but still it helps. … It doesn’t matter if we’re playing the Suns or the Bucks, whoever it is. We need that energy from them because we feed off that.”

The Warriors haven’t won consecutive games since winning five straight Feb. 2-12.

They’ve lost 4 out of their last 6. 

Come playoff time, they’ll find their energy. 

Blaming the fans for a lacking energy is an interesting strategy.
