The Warriors are tied for the third-best record in the NBA, but have lost their winning ways of late. After dropping their third straight game on Tuesday with a 94-90 loss to the lowly Orlando Magic, coach Steve Kerr had one of his most solemn press conferences of the season.
â€œI know these are great guys,â€ Kerr said. â€œI love these guys in the locker room. Awesome guys. I know they want to win. But we have to learn how to win. Right now, we donâ€™t know how to win.â€Â

As odd as it might seem for the coach of a team with a 47-25 record to claim they are still learning how to win, the Warriorsâ€™ current situation might reflect that statement.Â
With Steph Curry sidelined indefinitely, the Warriorsâ€™ other key players outside of Jordan Poole have struggled to make up for Curryâ€™s production.Â
Theyâ€™ve also struggled with committing bad fouls the last two games against the Magic and San Antonio Spurs, whether itâ€™s fouling 3-point shooters or setting illegal screens, according to Kerr. A pivotal late foul by Klay Thompson on Orlandoâ€™s Franz Wagner on a 3-point shot extended the Magicâ€™s lead to four with 13 seconds left on Tuesday.Â

â€œTake away the fouls on 3-point shooters and in my opinion, we win both games,â€ Kerr said. â€œWe got to take care of the ball. We canâ€™t set illegal screens. We just had a couple of awful illegal screens where weâ€™re completely out of position.â€
Kerr added that the Warriors are making â€œmental mistakes.â€
â€œThereâ€™s got to be a level of discipline, of accountability, of competitive desire,â€ Kerr said.
