The Golden State Warriors suffered one of their worst defeats in recent memory on Tuesday, losing to the Dallas Mavericks 133-103. It was a humiliating loss to be sure, and one that Steph Curry is understandably upset about.
Speaking to the media after the game, Curry stressed that the Warriors' goal is to "turn the page" and move on. He praised the Mavericks as a talented team and doesn't begrudge them for playing as well as they did.
“You want to turn the page. You understand that Mavs are a talented team. They get paid to play basketball just like we do. Some nights, it looks like they get paid more across the board,” Curry said, via Clutch Points.
The Warriors are 31-31 on the season, still in 10th place and in position for the play-in round. Curry believes that the Warriors can make the most of their opportunities and play well in their final 10 games.
“So it’s just a matter of us trying to remember who we are, remember our identity, not dwell on it too long, and find a way to keep our confidence," Curry said. "Who we’ve shown ourselves to be over this last little stretch in 10 games and sprint to the finish line. We still have a good opportunity."
Steph Curry isn't to blame for the Warriors' struggles though. He's averaging a career-high 31.2 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.
But the Warriors will need to make it a pretty quick turnaround if they want to ensure their play-in spot.
Their next four games are on the road against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Houston Rockets and then back-to-back games against the New Orleans Pelicans.
