After looking like a team that’s one piece away from being a powerhouse in the West, the Golden State Warriors have issues across the board, especially in the foul column.
Before February 26th, the team had a 19-15 record and looked to be an aggressive Playoff team and one to keep an eye on. But now, they’ve lost 12 of their last 16 games, including seven of their last eight after another 117-111 defeat against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night. In a post-game interview, Warriors star guard Stephen Curry couldn’t hide his frustration after his team’s latest setback.
“You cannot play the way that we’ve played in the last significant stretch and expect things to change. So, it kind of is what it is. We’ve got to make the necessary adjustments. It sucks right now. Losing sucks. It’s a terrible feeling in the locker room. We don’t really have much to smile about. And it’s kind of the vibe right now.”
Throughout this losing streak, reporters keep asking the same questions about why the team isn’t disciplined or make the right decisions during games. Take fouling as an example. The Warriors had more fouls (26) than assists (25) on Sunday night, which is hard to understand when previously, the Warriors were a team that made you pay ‘hard’ if you made simple mistakes.
The bottom line is, no one has the answers to their problems, and Golden State’s searching hard to rectify them.
Catch you Thursday.
