Steve Kerr Quips About Durant: “We Did A good Job On Him In The Second Half”

Steve Kerr

By now everyone knows that Kevin Durant went off last night to the tune of 30 points in 18 minutes, which hasn’t been done since the American Basketball Association was being folded into the NBA. But an ankle injury right before the half saved the Warriors the uneviable task of stopping him in the next half, which coach Steve Kerr joked about after the game when it became clear KD was all right.

Steve Kerr On Whether Warriors Could Match 72-Win Bulls: “Oh God, No. No!”

Steve Kerr

After a thrilling, closer-than-expected 128-122 win over the Pelicans on Sunday night to extend Golden State’s winning streak to 16 games and give them a 21-2 start to the season — the best in NBA history for a rookie head coach — hyperbole, of course, entered the fray. Ethan Sherwood Strauss of ESPN.com asked Steve Kerr if his Dubs team could match the 1995-96 Bulls — who went 72-10 with Kerr as their three-point specialist. Kerr was pretty adamant the idea is hogwash so early in the season, saying,”Oh God, no. No!” Read More »

Video: Warriors Go Small To Beat Rockets For 14th Consecutive Win

Steve Kerr, Warriors

The Dubs aren’t messing around. So far they’ve played the NBA’s third easiest schedule, but a 14-game winning-streak and a 19-2 start to the season — the NBA’s best — is the greatest start ever by a rookie head coach. Steve Kerr adroitly trotted out a small lineup down the stretch of Golden State’s 105-93 win over a very good Rockets team, and if they can get past Dallas and Memphis on their upcoming road trip, it’s worth calling them the NBA’s best despite how early in the season we still are.

Warriors Owner Joe Lacob Clarifies Reasons For Firing Mark Jackson

Mark Jackson, Steve Kerr

The Golden State Warriors are the best team in basketball. They sport the league’s top record at 16-2, have won 11 consecutive games, and rank top-five in both offensive and defensive efficiency – a feat unmatched by any NBA peer. And while awesome season-long player performance has obviously contributed to Golden State’s unparalleled success thus far, the influence of first-year coach Steve Kerr can’t be discounted, either. The Warriors made only modest adjustments to their roster this summer, after all; the biggest change was replacing Mark Jackson on the sidelines with Kerr. Read More »

Stephen Curry Bet With His Mom About Turnovers

Stephen Curry

The Warriors are in Charlotte tonight, Stephen Curry‘s hometown — who remembers Del dropping buckets for the teal? — and the Dubs point is at the apex of his powers right now. The three-pointers, the kicks to Klay, the handle, it’s all coming together for No. 30, and while his old man might’ve taught him the bottom of the nylon is the only place for the ball to finish, his mom is the one that’s kept him from turning it over.
