Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is disappointed with the team’s nine-game losing streak and wants to turn things around.

Kerr wants to see his players enhance their defensive performance and “play with a sense of desperation” in the next games.

“The losing part is the hardest part. You can pick apart the details. The defense tonight, we struggled to get stops, but we’re also playing the No. 1 offense in the league and they’ve been a tough matchup for us this year.

I think what I don’t like is the feeling of things snowballing on us. We’ve been competitive for the most part this year and I think right now we’re in a tailspin and we’ve got to stop that.

And the way to stop it is to really fight defensively and play with a sense of desperation, and we’ve got to get to that. That’s the only way we’re going to get out of it.

Last couple games, I haven’t felt like we were very competitive, and that’s what we have to get to,” Kerr said, per Nick Friedell of ESPN.

Golden State is now the worst team in the league with a 9-33 record.
