The Golden State Warriors looked to have gotten out of their funk after a dominant win over the Spurs on Friday.
In the game, the Warriors set a season record in points scored and everyone contributed.
But, just two days later the Warriors are back to their losing ways.
Golden State dropped another road game on Sunday afternoon, this time to the Chicago Bulls.
This loss saw the Warriors drop below .500 again, with a record of 21-22.
Golden State now sits in eighth place in the Western Conference and has shown no consistency of late.
Despite their struggles, Klay Thompson does not seem worried about the Warriors long-term.

Golden State has been dominant in the playoffs over the past decade.
No team has more championships than the Warriors in that span, with their Big 3 playing a key role in the success.
Last season the Warriors finished the regular season as the three-seed.
Before going on a championship run in which they never faced elimination.
When each of the Big 3 play every game in a playoff series, the Warriors are 17-0.
They simply do not lose when they are together and everything is on the line.
So when Thompson mentioned getting there healthy, that is the most important thing.
Even if the Warriors do not have home-court advantage, they have confidence in their ability to turn it on come playoff time.
But, to be assured a playoff spot where they can avoid the play-in tournament, the Warriors need a top-six seed.
So at some point, they need to go on a run in the regular season to get as good a seed as possible.
