Warriors’ Head Coach Steve Kerr talks about the plays Marcus Smart made against Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson
The Golden State Warriors hosted the Boston Celtics tonight, looking for their 5th win in a row. The Celtics, on the other hand, were looking to bounce back from their loss against the Mavericks. During the 2nd quarter, Marcus Smart made a play that resulted in Steph Curry having to leave the rest of the game due to foot soreness. The injury was most likely caused by Smart’s attempt to vie for a loose ball.
While the extent of the injury is yet to be revealed, Steve Kerr did not mince his words. On the sidelines, he directly confronted Marcus Smart. The altercation looked firey from many angles and the Golden State Warriors coach was visibly furious.
