The Warriors suffered their 9th loss of the season as they fell against the Suns (130-119). Steph Curry dropped 50 points for Golden State, but it wasn’t enough.
Although the reigning NBA champions have been playing better recently – they won 3 of their last 5 games – the team is still not playing at the level that it is expected to.
Head coach Steve Kerr thinks that his players collectively lack grit and are playing as if this was a pickup game instead of an NBA game.
“We lack collective grit. We’re playing a Drew League game right now,” Kerr said. “I’ve always felt the game rewards you if you commit to the game. If you really compete together, shots go in, calls go your way, breaks fall your way, and we’re not earning any of this stuff. That’s why we are winless on the road. It’s a pickup game.”
