San Francisco, Ca – The Phoenix Suns are in the Bay Area to play the struggling Golden State Warriors. Steve Kerr and his crew is trying to get back on track before the postseason, and there's one thing he's looking for out of his team against the Suns.

“Still looking for defense,” Kerr told ClutchPoints. “That’s the whole thing. Can we be the team that we were the first few months of the season? I think we can, but we have been searching for that in recent weeks without much success. That’s the main thing I’m looking for is just the energy and continuity.”

The Warriors walked into their matchup carrying a three-game losing streak. In those games, they've given up over 120 points each night.

After being the best defense in the NBA, the Warriors have fallen off drastically. Not having a consistent rotation is a part of the team's problem on defense. Injuries have forced the Warriors to try different lineups all season.

Every lineup Kerr has tried the last few weeks has been unsuccessful at slowing down opponents. Wednesday, the Warriors have everyone available besides Stephen Curry and James Wiseman. The much-needed depth could be the right answer to finding a defensive combination that works.

It will be tough because they're playing the best team in the NBA, and the Suns have it rolling, and their eyes are set on winning an NBA championship.

The Warriors come into the game with a 48-28 record and rank third in the Western Conference. A win tonight will be huge, and they will clinch their first playoff birth since 2019.
