The Golden State Warriors overcame the Phoenix Suns 106-100 on Sunday night thanks to Kevin Durant's 37 points and 28 for Stephen Curry.

But it was still a far cry from the rampant and dominant Dubs of last season.

Despite amassing a starting five that features four bona fide All-Stars in Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Durant, the Warriors were embarrassed during their opening night encounter with the San Antonio Spurs.

Coach Steve Kerr knows the frustration within his ranks better than anybody and he has conceded following the Suns victory that the Warriors are essentially getting by on talent right now.

"We were frustrated in the first half. You guys can all see it. This is not coming easily," Kerr said. "We have a new team and a lot of different faces, but even for the returning guys, it's a different mix."

The 2015 champions are lucky they have such talent at their disposal that can almost single-handedly drag them out of a hole. But, in the long-term, that's not good enough.

"We had some good individual efforts to help us pull it out," Kerr said, "but the main thing is while we're going through this early part of the season sorting through rotations and offensively trying to get going, we just have to compete and pick up our share of wins and we'll find our stride eventually."
