Why Steph Curry, Warriors on the Verge of Unfortunate Team History

What you are about to read is not a typo.

If the Warriors lose Monday night in New Orleans, it will be the first time they've lost three straight regular-season games in which Steph Curry played in all three since ...

... they dropped four straight in late February/early March, 2013.

That. Is. Absolutely. Wild.

You don't believe me? Well, let's go through the seasons.

In 2013-14 (Mark Jackson's final year as coach), Golden State dropped three straight in late November, but Curry didn't suit up for the first two.

In 2014-15 and 2015-16, the Warriors never lost three in a row. Yes, I know they lost Games 5 through 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, but this is a regular-season thing.

In 2016-17, they lost on March 8, 10 and 11. But remember, coach Steve Kerr rested Curry and the other main rotation players in San Antonio in the middle of that stretch to prove a point about the daunting schedule.

In 2017-18, Curry was out with a sprained knee when the Warriors fell on March 25, 27 and 29.

And last season, the two-time NBA MVP was in street clothes because of a strained groin when the Dubs were defeated on Nov. 15, 17, 18 and 21.

Believe me now?

To avoid falling to 0-3, the Warriors need to play much better defense against the Pelicans. And Curry needs to find his shot, as he went 2-for-11 from deep in the season opener against the Clippers, and 2-for-9 from distance in Sunday's loss in Oklahoma City.

It will be difficult, because as Draymond Green said: "We f--ing suck right now."
