Warriors win third straight match

Warriors win third straight match

Updates with new top.

Steve Kerr claimed victory No. 251 in his National Basketball Association coaching career with a 129-83 rout of the Phoenix Suns on Monday night. "I think that's one of the first things you have to consider as a coach: It's not your team, it's not Bob Myers' team, it's not Joe Lacob's team - although I'm not gonna tell Joe that". Are role players stepping up at a time when this team is supposed to be losing games to enhance its lottery positioning this summer? "We have to have that healthy respect for them, but also understand that anybody could be beaten". They determine their own fate. The Cavaliers just traded half their team to shake things up after a horrific slide over the past month. What better way to get players more involved than making them coach themselves? That featured Green running most of the timeout huddles, with Andre Iguodola and David West chiming in, too.

"They have to take ownership of it", Kerr said.

"I told Jay afterward that it had nothing to do with being disrespectful", Kerr said. They needed a new voice. I'm exhausted of my voice. It had to do with me trying to reach my team.' I have not reached them for the last month.

Fully-empowered by their head coach, the Golden State Warriors went on to rout the visiting Phoenix Suns 129-83.


You might remember this team started the season 6-2. "So I think anybody can do it".

Against the Bucks he scored 23 points, and against the Bulls he put up 24. "We can't hang our heads". At the end of the first quarter, Payton was 7-for-7 from the field, including two threes; good for 16 points. Kevin Durant had 17 as Golden State won its 12th straight in the series, its longest active streak against any team. "We have a veteran team". During that time, they had the best 3-point shooting percentage in the league, and guys like Aaron Gordon and Evan Fournier couldn't miss. He's off to a great start in Phoenix, but we may not see how he fits next to Devin Booker (hip) until after the break. That's why the Warriors - while still leading the league with both a 44-13 record and in outscoring their opponents by 10.3 points per 100 possessions - have already come close to matching last season's 15 losses with 25 games remaining on the schedule.

Green (finger) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers.

"I was awful", Curry said. He did whatever we did to prepare for Golden State, whatever that might be, so I told the guys to make sure, before we left the gym to get Nick Kerr's cellphone so he couldn't text it to Steve Kerr.

Curry's 22 points gave him and his father, Dell, a combined 28,883 points in their careers, tying Rick and Brent Barry for the third-most ever by a father-son combination, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
