PHOENIX -- Over the last 10 years, the Golden State Warriors built a dynasty on playing free, competitiveness and a sense of togetherness that could rarely be shaken.
Yet, just 15 games into this season, it all feels to be crashing down.
On Wednesday, the Warriors suffered their latest blow, a 130-119 loss to the Phoenix Suns that dropped them to 0-8 on the road to start a season for the first time since 1989-90, when they started 0-9.
"Forget the road record, we can't find a sustainable period of success where habits start to form
we're in a position where we're coming off the court feeling good about ourselves," said Stephen Curry,
who posted his 11th career 50-point game to tie Allen Iverson for ninth most all-time
The word "scattered" was used several times during the Warriors' postgame news conference when describing the state of the team,
alluding to a lack of connectivity and buy-in from each member of the team.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr said the team is not on the same page about worrying about winning.
