There was a time when it seemed like the Golden State Warriors could take the top spot in the Western Conference and once again return to the NBA Finals.
When the season began, the Warriors were red-hot and had the best record in the entire league.
But times have changed and the Warriors are going through another rough patch.
They are currently playing without Stephen Curry, who is recovering from a leg injury.
It’s thought that Curry will be back as the playoffs begin so not all hope is lost.
But how far will they fall during his absence?

The Warriors are currently the number three seed with a record of 47-25.
They sit 11 games behind the top-seeded Phoenix Suns.
However, their recent games suggest that things could get a lot worse for Golden State in the weeks ahead.
Things got really bad on Tuesday night when the Warriors were blindsided in a loss to the Orlando Magic.
That’s right, the Warriors lost to a team with a record of 20-53.
Just a few nights before, they were taken down by the inferior San Antonio Spurs too.
In fact, they have now lost three games in a row and have not been playing with the sort of energy and enthusiasm needed to make it far in the postseason.
When Warriors fans look at the road ahead, there is definitely cause for concern.
They are taking on the number one Miami Heat on Wednesday night, followed by a game against the talented, tricky Atlanta Hawks later this week.
They will also be going against the Memphis Grizzlies, Suns, and Utah Jazz next week.
If the Warriors continue to collapse as they have been, they could slide down the Western Conference rapidly.
Warriors fans are surely creating a get well soon card for Curry right now.NEXT: Warriors Could Fall Fast Without Steph Curry
