Coach Mark Jackson just stood and stared on the sidelines, his expression devoid of emotion as he witnessed his team fall apart in the first half. He later said the Warriors wouldn't panic, but they might be alone in that abstention. After Saturday's 116-91 loss to the Dallas Mavericks, concluding an 0-4 trip, playoff-thirsty Golden State fans might need some therapy. "We're fine," Jackson said. "There's no panic. We lost another game. We didn't play well. We made mistakes. We did not put together 48 minutes of basketball. But there's going to be no panic. We're going to regroup." It's not just that the Warriors (30-21) have lost four straight, their longest losing streak of the season. It's how they lost. They were humiliated in Houston. Outgunned in Oklahoma City. Manhandled in Memphis. To top it off, they got dogged in Dallas. They were outscored by an average of 20.8 points per game on the trip. Point guard Stephen Curry needed 23 shots to get 18 points and turned it over five times. Forward David Lee had just 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting with six rebounds and three turnovers. Guard Klay Thompson had another rough outing, totaling 11 points on 14 shots.
