It's one thing to believe everything will improve dramatically in the future, quite another to consistently leave the court with the unsatisfying feeling that comes with a nine-game losing streak over a 17-day period in that languid period -- often referred to as the dog days -- between the holidays and the All-Star break. "I can't say we enjoy it right now, because losing is not fun," rookie Eric Paschall said Tuesday night after the Warriors absorbed a 124-97 beatdown from the Dallas Mavericks. Warriors coach Steve Kerr feels it as much as anyone with the possible exception of Draymond Green.
