Since February, Golden State has been playing a lot worse than how they usually play. Their winning streaks have gone down rapidly and they are starting to lose to teams which they should be destroying. This is happening for several reasons and problems going on in the team right now.
The big one is Durant’s injury. On February 28, 2017, KD hyperextended his leg as teammate Zaza fell on his leg. This was a scary day for the Warriors, as Kevin is one of their best players. After tests, Kevin is set to return in 4 weeks, March 29th. Even with the injury, Kevin feels blessed as he says it could have been a lot worse. Now, injuries in the NBA are very common and players usually get back in a couple weeks. Hopefully, this will be the same for KD, so he can return and help the Warriors on the court. http://www.foxsports.com/nba/kevin-durant-player-injuries
With that, another superstar, Steph Curry has been acting very weird lately. Known for his shooting, Curry the past couple seasons has been shooting 3’s without missing. His 3 point percentage last season was 45% and this season he dropped to 40%. This is still a high number but the big deal is that he has been missing 81% of his wide open 3’s in the last 10 games. He is in 15th place for most wide open 3’s made. This is surprising as he is expected to be in 1st.
Overall, hopefully, the Warriors will soon go back to themselves and play like a championship team. This will only happen if Curry snaps out of it and Durant heals from his injury. What are your thoughts on how the Warriors have been playing lately? Why do you think they have been getting worse?
