Steph Curry is doing everything he can to keep the Warriors from spiraling.
After Saturday’s loss to the LakersGolden State now has four in a row and dropped eight of 10.
“If the playoffs started tomorrow, we would be in trouble,” Curry told reporters.
But he doesn’t want the Warriors to fall into a “loser mentality.”
“We’re not that team and I’m not going to let us be that team,” Curry said. “…We can’t indulge in this loser spirit of just finding different ways to lose basketball games.
“We have 18 games left, we need to figure out how to change things up pretty quickly.”
On Saturday, the Warriors were overwhelmed by a 56-point performance by LeBron James. But that doesn’t overshadow the problems that have plagued them of late.
“It was kind of a pattern for us during this bad time,” head coach Steve Kerr told reporters. “We don’t step on teams when they’re down. We make mistakes and let teams hang around. And if you do that in this league, you’re dead.”
Kerr pinned the late-game execution as the issue that doomed her against the Lakers. But that’s not the only thing the Warriors need to fix ahead of Monday’s game in Denver.
“It’s tough right now,” Curry said. “To keep it plain and simple, it’s rough. We have to find a way to fight our way out because obviously as you’ve seen in the last four games these are self-inflicted wounds.”
