The Warriors return home after a disastrous six-game Eastern Conference road trip that saw them go 1-5.

Despite a current 15-18 record, as well as injuries to key star players like Steph Curry and Andrew Wiggins, the Warriors’ chances for first place in the Western Conference aren’t in bad shape.

Golden State enters Christmas Day against the Memphis Grizzlies in 11th place in the West, but they are only six games behind the Denver Nuggets (20-11) for the lead.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr spoke with 95.7 The Game’s “Damon & Ratto” on Thursday and discussed how the tight conference schedule is benefiting his team.

“There’s depth out West, but that’s good for us because, like you said, everybody’s kind of beating each other up,” Kerr said. “Although we are where we are in the standings, we are not far behind where we should be. So we have plenty of time to move forward.”

While finishing first in the West is still within reach, the Warriors have shown they can win by starting a streak on the road. Golden State finished third in the conference last season and beat second-seeded Memphis despite the Grizzlies holding home court advantage in their second-round playoff series.

When they’re healthy, if the Warriors can climb the standings and avoid a play-in tournament, they’ll certainly be confident in their chances of beating anyone.
