The Golden State Warriors are doing something they haven’t done in over 30 years.

With Sunday’s loss to the Kings in Sacramento, the Warriors have opened the 2022-23 season with seven consecutive road losses. This is the worst road start by the Warriors since the 1989-90 season, where the team didn’t win on the road until its 10th game.

“We just gotta keep figuring it out in terms of putting together a complete game, knowing that the other team is going to feed off the home crowd and probably play better than you expect,” Curry said following the game. “We got to meet that intensity, especially on the defensive end. Pretty disappointing to be 0-7, for sure.”

The Kings ended the game on a 13-4 run, securing the 122-115 victory. Draymond Green explained how runs like that, and others the Kings made throughout the game, can play out differently on the road.

“You got to understand that your margin for error on the road is a lot less than it is at home,” Green said following the game.

Three of the four matchups between the Warriors and Kings have taken place within the first month of the 2022-23 NBA season. The next time the two teams face off is Friday, April 7, at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento.
