“Losing sucks. We all know that. No matter what the reason is, you can kind of nitpick each game. Turnover, fouls, or offensive rebounds, or whatever the case is, it leads to a loss.

Curry noted that the team needs to figure out a way to be able to get out of this slump. By using the loss to Spurs as an example, Curry noted how San Antonio was able to make key plays in the fourth quarter to seal the game.

While the game was close for most of the period, the Warriors weren’t able to seal the deal in the final quarter.
