With their win on Friday night, the Golden State Warriors improved to 7-9 on the season, but they currently sit in 11th place in the Western Conference. They have still yet to win a game on the road this season, having gone 0-8 so far.

They recently held a team meeting to address their issues, and Klay Thompson said that Draymond Green was the vocal leader.

“Very constructive meeting,” Thompson explained. “Draymond definitely held the floor. He’s such a great motivator. So we all responded very well. Looking forward to starting a new win streak.”

Green has been putting together a decent season thus far. He’s appeared in 15 of the Warriors’ 17 games and has played  30.1 minutes per contest. The All-Star forward is averaging 8.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.7 assists on 56.2% shooting from the field and 31.3% shooting from distance.

Despite their struggles, not everyone is freaking out over their slow start. Warriors legend Chris Mullin recently spoke about the issue, specifically discussing the shooting of Thompson and the play of Golden State’s younger players.

He said that the team is a “perfect fit” on paper and just needs more time to gel.

“I think what you said, Klay [Thompson] starts making some shots, all of a sudden it’s not as much talk about him recovering,” Mullin explained on KNBR‘s Tolbert & Copes. “Because, I, quite frankly, thought what he did last year was way more challenging than what he’s going through now.
