Steve Kerr takes blame: One of my worst coaching performances


"Wasn't [Curry's] best game", Kerr said, "but I'm not at all anxious about Steph". We've gotta get better shots.

The 28-year-old Warriors forward, who has been dealing with a toe sprain and has not played since November 15, told reporters Saturday he is now pain free and is hoping to be back in Golden State's lineup "soon".

Over 11 games, the Pistons play eight teams that are no worse than even money to be in the playoffs, so grabbing any win over that span will be important.

After seeing the Pistons outshoot the Warriors from 3-point range - Detroit went 12-of-35 compared with 6-of-26 for Golden State - Kerr pointed the finger at himself after a 111-102 loss.

"All-in-all, I have to do a better job than what I've done here in the first couple months of the season". "This has gotta get better".

Kerr explained that he didn't like some of the combinations he used and that the Warriors have to make adjustments to their spacing on the court.

"I'm just exhausted of seeing three people in the paint every time we are penetrating", Kerr said. I know we are top-heavy with our shooting. "Because right now, what we're [seeing] is not working".

Along those lines, Kevin Durant had 28 points for the Warriors and Klay Thompson 21 in the loss to the Pistons, but Durant shot just 1-of-7 from deep and Thompson only 1-of-5. "I was a little bit more aggressive, decisive".

Curry made 10 of 21 shots but was just 3-for-9 from behind the arc. "None of that is on Coach".

The Warriors will face the Hawks in Atlanta on Monday. But with Curry getting back into the mix, Golden State is definitely going to see a significant boost moving forward.

"It's not on Steve", Thompson said "I think it's on us". "They are playing really well and we didn't do anything to take them out of their comfort zone".

A 3-pointer by Darren Collison had given IN a 110-107 advantage with 1:12 to go before Cauley-Stein stole the ball and Fox made a layup with 35.1 left to get the Kings within a point. "I don't care what Atlanta's record is, we got to play as hard as we can".
