Just a few months ago, the Golden State Warriors won the NBA Finals and claimed the title of the best team in the league.
So far this season, they don’t look like it.
While the team hasn’t been anything close to horrible, they have certainly been uneven.
They suffered their second straight loss and third on the road Sunday night when they were taken down by the Detroit Pistons, 128-114.
The Warriors now have a 3-4 record, which is surely not what they envisioned for this point in the season.
Kerr: "I'm very confident we'll figure this thing out."

Head coach Steve Kerr knows that his team has some issues but he has something more important: faith.
“I’m very confident we’ll figure this thing out,” Kerr said following the team’s latest loss.
There is every reason to believe in Kerr because he has gotten his team through some rough times.
What are the biggest problems plaguing the league’s reigning champions?
“A Sense Of Purpose”
Kerr said that his team needs to have urgency on the court and “come together.”
“We have to figure out what that means,” he added.
The team has a few glaring issues right now, especially the defense, lack of ball movement, and far too much fouling as well.
Additionally, too many players are lacking the output they need.
The good news is that the team has plenty of time to change things.
Kerr is an expert at tweaking his roster and finding ways to make it work as a whole, cohesive unit.
While their record right now isn’t amazing, this is still the very start of the season so it’s too soon for fans to be panicking.
