Following the loss, the Golden State Warriors’ head coach, Steve Kerr, spoke to the media about the current issues.
Here is what Steve Kerr said, per ESPN:
On the “toughest stretch” Warriors have ever been in: “But I’ve had a dream run for four and a half years. We’ve had such a charmed existence the last four seasons. This is the toughest stretch we’ve been in. This is the real NBA. We haven’t been in the real NBA the last few years. We’ve been in this dream. And so now we’re faced real adversity and we got to get out of it ourselves.”
On the attitude to the game: “Everyone has to come together and you can’t feel sorry for yourselves…You have to commit to fighting and executing, competing for 48 minutes. I thought we did that for maybe 24 minutes tonight. We had a couple good stretches. I was very proud of the group in the second half, got us back in the game and they fought. It’s not enough to do that for a stretch and then go through a bad spell. You got to be competing the whole time and playing with some poise and playing with a purpose. I didn’t think we did that tonight.”
