The Golden State Warriors got Stephen Curry back in the lineup on Saturday night for their game against the Detroit Pistons, but that wasn’t enough for the team to secure the win, and coach Steve Kerr puts that on himself.
Curry poured in 27 points but the offense still didn’t look great, and that led to a 111-102 defeat. After the game, Steve Kerr called the game one of his worst performances as a coach. The Warriors were crowded into the paint on the offensive end, and that is something Kerr knows he needs to make sure doesn’t happen.
The Warriors also had issues matching up with Andre Drummond and Blake Griffin and that led the Warriors to play some combinations they weren’t expecting to play, and the combinations were not great.
Steve Kerr said this wasn’t just on Saturday night’s game, and admits that it’s been an issue all year for this team.
The Warriors have a lot of different bench pieces this year and they haven’t fit too well, making life tough on the Warriors. They have also dealt with a bunch of injuries that has left the bench light and has made the record not look as good as years past.
This is still a team that has the talent to win the title, and now with the team getting healthy, these next few weeks are going to be key. It’s going to be important that Steve Kerr pushes the right buttons to get the job done.
