In recent memory, recalling a darker period for the Golden State Warriors is a challenging task.

Optimism is in short supply this season as the Warriors suffered their second consecutive blowout loss on Wednesday, a humiliating 141-105 defeat to the New Orleans Pelicans. This left the Golden State Warriors with a 17-20 record, currently holding the 12th spot in the Western Conference standings, trailing behind the Grizzlies, Trail Blazers, and Spurs.

While the majority of the Warriors' losses this season have been closely contested, their losses from Toronto and New Orleans have been near blowouts. This departure from competitiveness has stirred the typically composed fans at the Chase Center to express their discontent through rounds of boos.

When questioned about his feelings regarding the home crowd's boos, Curry responded candidly, offering a transparent glimpse into the current state of the Warriors. "We're obviously struggling. There's nothing to cheer about. I don't take it any type of certain way," remarked Curry on the boos. "Honestly, I'm booing myself, booing our team in my head because of the way we're playing, so it is what it is. Fans are going to react the way that they want. It's our job to give them something to cheer about, and we have not done that."

The Golden State Warriors find themselves navigating through a challenging phase, marked by disappointing performances and an uncharacteristically low standing in the conference. As they strive to rediscover their winning form, the team acknowledges the fans' frustration and is determined to turn the tide, providing supporters with reasons to cheer once again. The journey ahead poses both challenges and opportunities for the Warriors, and fans eagerly await a resurgence from this historically successful franchise.
