Curry is out for the next few weeks because of a leg injury which means the Warriors have lost their leader, their best shooter, and the heart and soul of the team.
This has led many people afraid that the team, currently the third team in the West, could fall down the standings without Curry.
Bad loss for the Warriors at home to Spurs. Life about to get harder without Steph Curry. Eight of final 11 games on the road. Four back-to-backs left. The Jazz are within two games. They meet one more time with tiebreaker on line. Warriors in danger of falling to #4 seed.

Sure enough, they suffered a tough beat on Sunday night, when they fell to the San Antonio Spurs at home.
At one point in the game, the Warriors trailed by as many as 14 points but fought their way back into it.
But the team got incredibly tough in the last few minutes and a few bad fouls resulted in the team going down 110-108.
The last eight of 11 games for the team are on the road and they have four back-to-backs left too.
Meanwhile, the Jazz are hot on their heels.
Warriors At Four?
Right now the Warriors are third in the West with a record of 47-24.
But the Utah Jazz shouldn’t be counted out and they are right behind with them at 45-26.
If the Jazz surge and the Warriors suffer a few more losses, they could easily swap places.
The good news here is that the Warriors have a chance to power through the playoffs when Curry returns.
Currently, the plan is for him to come back right as the postseason begins.
If that happens, Golden State could still make the Finals and shouldn’t be counted out.
That is exactly what fans of the Warriors are hoping for; their dreams of another Finals victory aren’t gone yet.
