The 120-116 win was a badge of honor for the Nets and another low point in the season for the Warriors.
At 23-24, the Warriors are experiencing far too many ups and downs and seem helpless to figure out what is slowing them down.
Curry: "No matter what the reason is, losing is a terrible feeling. We hate it …[We] need to do something about it…Nobody is thinking we can't do it. That's our challenge, to not be in the situation where every other night we are explaining why we didn't get the job done."

Following the latest loss, Stephen Curry opened up about all that has gone wrong with the team and the situation they’re in.
“No matter what the reason is, losing is a terrible feeling,” Curry said.
He added, “[We] need to do something about it. Nobody is thinking we can’t do it. That’s our challenge, to not be in the situation where every other night we are explaining why we didn’t get the job done.”
Sure enough, for two weeks now, the Warriors have won a game and then lost the next.
They are taking one step forward and one back time and time again.
However, the most troubling thing about this latest defeat is that it happened without Durant but with all of Golden State’s starters.
Yet, even with all that power, the Warriors were taken care of.
Fans of the team have repeatedly heard comments like Curry’s from Steve Kerr and the rest of the team.
However, they have not seen sizable changes and adjustments that have worked.
The Warriors, who just months ago hoisted the Larry O’Brien Trophy over their heads, are now the 10th team in the West.
And they could actually be even lower than that when the All-Star break rolls around.
Curry’s words show that he and his team understand there is a problem – but when will they do something about it?
