Ever since Steve Kerr took over the Golden State Warriors, they’ve been the team to beat in the NBA.
Even when some thought the dynasty days were over, they would up coming out of the left field to win the NBA championship again.
This season hasn’t been as positive for them, though, as they’ve struggled defensively — especially on the road — and Stephen Curry has missed plenty of time with injuries.
That cost the Warriors early in the campaign.
They were a .500 basketball team for the most part, and they failed to make in-game adjustments to try and get the win.
Fortunately for them, it seems like they’ve finally found their groove, and they’re winning games they would’ve lost at any other point in the season.
As WarriorsMuse recently pointed out, they were 3-15 this season when shooting under 35% from beyond the arc, and 0-10 when shooting under 42% from the field.

They shot 30.4% from 3 tonight.

Still, they beat the Los Angeles Clippers in a big way despite shooting 41.9% from the floor and 30.4% from deep, so it’s nice to see that they’re finally scrapping their way to wins.
Stephen Curry is expected to be back on the floor on Sunday when they face the Los Angeles Lakers, and Andrew Wiggins should also be back with the team soon after dealing with an undisclosed family matter.
Gary Payton II will make his second Warriors debut in the next couple of weeks after arriving via trade, so reinforcements are on the way for Steve Kerr’s team, and that’s terrible news for the rest of the West.NEXT: Warriors Owner Comments On The James Wiseman Trade
