Warriors hold best home record and worst road record in the NBA – Basketball Insiders
#Warriors #hold #home #record #worst #road #record #NBA #Basketball #Insiders Welcome to Alaska Green Light Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
The current NBA champions are dealing with a tumultuous 2022-23 season, after 39 regular-season games, the Warriors hold the records for the best home and worst road performances of the tournament’s 30 franchises.
Crazy, right? This apparent discrepancy can only mean that the Golden State has found a true stronghold at their stadium, just as they suffer intense demotivation every time they go out.
Chase Center stronghold
A fan-filled chase center was a crucial element in achieving an impressive 17-3 home record for the Warriors this season. It’s a given to see its 18,000-seat home with a devoted Golden State fan base that’s seen great victories, like their 123-107 win over the Celtics last December or when they beat their state rivals, the Lakers, by 14 points Marge back in November.

On the street, well… it was quite the opposite, literally. Their 3-16 record is pretty embarrassing considering the Warriors are the reigning NBA champion. Perhaps their most shameful away performance was the 5-game losing streak from October 29th to November 4th, when they lost to weak teams like the Hornets and the Pistons. What a horrible Halloween season this has been for the Golden State!
Inspirational start to 2023
It seems this New Year’s holiday season has brought some much-needed motivation back to the Bay Area. Since Christmas Day, the Warriors have won 5 of their last 6 games to finally climb the ladder in the Western Conference. Still outside of the playoff qualifying zone and ranked 9th in their division, they’re stepping on the sun as they both share a 20-19 record. January 10 will prove to be a crucial date as both Golden State and Phoenix will clash at the Chase Center.
We can’t help but mention that their best player is still in rehabilitation due to a shoulder injury he sustained in mid-December. The Warriors are hoping to bring Stephen Curry back for their Spurs game on Jan. 13, but they have two more games to play before Curry is back on track.

In the case of the Warriors, it wasn’t just about strengthening the team as Jordan Poole had to face the situation and replace Curry in the spotlight.
