Warriors’ mounting losses are not encouraging for Draymond Green

The Golden State Warriors are in a precarious position. Their loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday left the franchise with a one-game cushion over the surging Houston Rockets for 10th place.

Golden State has struggled for consistency this season, losing 34 of their 70 games.

Veteran forward Draymond Green bluntly assessed his team’s postseason chances as he addressed the media following the loss to Minnesota. He noted the continued losing isn’t encouraging. Green also pointed out the Warriors’ defense lacks communication, leading to consistent breakdowns on that end of the floor.

“We keep losing,” Green said. “That’s not encouraging.”

Golden State is in danger of missing the postseason. It must build breathing room between itself and the Rockets. Furthermore, even if they make the play-in tournament, they are not guaranteed to advance.

Green is the Warriors’ emotional leader. He’s also their best defender. However, he can’t galvanize a squad on his own. Steve Kerr may need to make some more rotation changes to get the team’s season back on track.
