Santa Claus is making his annual trek, and the Golden State Warriors have some significant holiday wishes that need to come true in a hurry.
The Warriors and their fans are very thankful for how the squad is built and see the playoff potential. The two just wish that the Dubs would not be hovering near the .500 mark so close to the end of the year.
Everyone was extremely hopeful going into the season, and the 8-3 start justified that confidence. However, injuries and lack of depth put the team in its current, troublesome situation.
The team needs to buck the trend of getting down early and chasing hard to pull out desperation wins. That pursuit is going to wear out members of the team, especially Stephen Curry, who is averaging over 40 minutes in the month of December.
The Dubs need to get back to a defensive focus and not give up huge runs throughout the game. Andre Iguodala is the missing piece of the puzzle, but the Warriors can’t pin all of their hopes on his back.
With that being said, let’s take a closer look at the holiday wishes for the Warriors.
