The Golden State Warriors once again faced another embarrassing, surprising loss when they were taken down 132-118 by the Chicago Bulls on Sunday night.
It was the latest shocking defeat to the Warriors, and another painful fall while on the road.
The Warriors are the 8th team in the West right now, which means their hopes of returning to the Finals are dwindling more and more by the day.
With so much on the line, it is important that the team’s leaders know what has gone wrong and how to fix it.
Sadly, they don’t seem to see eye-to-eye.
Thompson says there is zero concern for the Warriors' inconsistencies and as long as they're healthy, they'll be OK come postseason. But, Curry says they can't have that mindset this season.
"We haven't had a stretch where consistently we can… say we figured it out."

Thompson told reporters there was was “zero concern” with the inconsistency of his team and that if the Warriors remain healthy they will be ready to play in the postseason.
As for Curry, he sang a different tune: “We haven’t had a stretch where consistently we can…say we figured it out.”
So, Thompson seems to think that everything will be okay while Curry isn’t so sure and knows that Golden State needs to show progress and consistency from game to game.
Curry’s response sounds a lot more like what we have heard from head coach Steve Kerr, who also isn’t happy with the team’s current record and wants to see a lot of changes in the weeks ahead.
Right now, we aren’t sure what those changes will look like.
The team had all of their big stars playing on Sunday night and yet they still fell to the Bulls.
What else can be done?
And what is causing so many dreadful road losses for the defending champions?
It’s beyond just being healthy, despite what Thompson said.
