2003–04 Golden State Warriors season

The 2003–04 NBA season was the Warriors' 58th season in the National Basketball Association, and 42nd season in the San Francisco Bay Area.[1] During the offseason, the Warriors acquired Nick Van Exel from the Dallas Mavericks, and Clifford Robinson from the Detroit Pistons while signing free agents Calbert Cheaney and Speedy Claxton. The Warriors began to show they were turning the corner as they got off to a 14–13 start. However, as the New Year began, they went on a 7-game losing streak. Despite a nine-game losing streak between February and March, the Warriors would then win seven straight games. However, they yet again missed the playoffs by finishing fifth in the Pacific Division with a 37–45 record. Despite their record, the Warriors were very successful at home posting a 27–14 record at The Arena in Oakland. Following the season, head coach Eric Musselman was fired, Van Exel was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers, and Erick Dampier was traded to the Dallas Mavericks as the Warriors were unable to re-sign him.
