Suffice to say, the Golden State Warriors have had a rough week.

The team has lost three of its last four games. Stephen Curry has missed four games with a groin injury and will miss at least four more. In Curry’s absence, two of the team’s biggest remaining stars, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green, are embroiled in an ugly feud that has caused Green to be suspended and some on the team to worry that it could push Durant into leaving this offseason.

And yet, Curry thinks the team is going to be just fine.

Steph Curry insists the Warriors are OK

The injured point guard spoke to reporters on Saturday for the first time since Green and Durant began their feud and maintained that this should all blow over in due time.




There’s a lot going on in those quotes from Curry. For starters, he’s probably not wrong that the Warriors’ current chaos won’t taint the rest of the season. The Warriors have five months until the NBA playoffs begin, plenty of time for beefs to be settled and for Curry to get healthy.

Sure, something else may happen, but we’ve seen the Warriors recover from disarray before. It’s a long season and the Warriors have way too much going for them.

On the other hand, it’s hard to call some of what has transpired “nothing but professionalism and understanding. From Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes:

Green called Durant a “b—-” multiple times, sources said. In a summarized version, sources said Green shouted, “You’re a b—- and you know you’re a b—-.” The rhetoric, sources said, continued even when Kerr attempted to direct the team’s attention to his whiteboard.

Warriors lose again, this time to Mavericks

The healing didn’t start for the Warriors the day of Curry’s comments. Rather, the squad fell 112-109 to the now 7-8 Dallas Mavericks. Mavs rookie Luka Doncic led the way with 24 points, nine rebounds and four assists while the Warriors shot just 9-of-33 from the field, with only three of those makes coming from their starters.

The next opportunity the Warriors have to turn things around will come on Sunday against the San Antonio Spurs.
