Before the 2022-23 regular season started, analysts predicted that the Defending Champions would be successful once again. Not many saw them in their current state of turmoil.
Much to everyone’s surprise, despite suffering no major injuries, the Golden State Warriors are 8-10 and sitting at 11th in the Western Conference. While the San Francisco team is a solid 7-1 at home, it is on the road where Steve Kerr’s boys suffer the most. They hold an awful 1-9 record.
Despite the Golden State Warriors’ turbulent start to the nascent season, Stephen Curry has been playing out of his mind.

As soon as the stats went viral on social media, NBA Twitter was left in awe of the 2-time MVP’s performance.
If he continues this stress and we can start winning games, I’ll say this season was better than his unanimous even though his unanimous is the Greatest Offensive season I have ever seen

He really should be the MVP right now. The only reason he’s not is because the bench is a** and they can’t win games because of it.. https://t.co/ww3rX55CMd

The Warriors sit 2 games behind the 8th seed in the West
Yes, the Warriors’ record is concerning. However, sitting at the 11th spot, the GSW is merely 3.5 games behind the #1 seed. And they can clinch it if the team starts clicking together. Of course, it’s easier said than done.
Steve Kerr and co. could very easily rise up the standings by taking it one step at a time. Currently, Golden State is 2 games behind the 8th-seed Mavs. However, the Warriors can do everything in their power to climb to 6th or above in the West and avoid the play-in tournament.
While SC30 plays at an Incredible level, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green, Jordan Poole, and the other Warriors need to step up big-time to support their leader.
