The Warriors aren't quite ready to go into full-blown panic mode, but the stress level in their locker room was at a season high after Friday's 99-93 loss to the Grizzlies.
"The urgency is high," said center Andrew Bogut, who was the last Warriors player to leave a deflated visiting locker room at the FedEx Forum. "We haven't played a complete game in the past (nine) games. We haven't played a 48-minute game, even the ones we've won. It's coming back to bite us right now that we're playing against some really good teams.
"There are teams nipping at our heels. If we go on another four-game losing streak now, we've got a chance to be out of the playoffs."
The Warriors (30-20) have gone 4-5 over their past nine games to fall to sixth in the Western Conference standings, only three games ahead of eighth-place Houston. The first three games of their current four-game road trip have been especially disconcerting.
During their second three-game losing streak of the season, the Warriors have yielded 119.3 points a game on 49.2 percent field-goal shooting and 47 percent three-point shooting. They've been outrebounded by 18 during the stretch and coughed up 15.7 turnovers per contest.
