Warriors’ Head Coach Steve Kerr has a stern message for Stephen Curry and the Dubs following their comeback win on Monday.
The Golden State Warriors pulled off a major upset yesterday, as they managed to beat LeBron James and the Lakers. The Dubs secured a 115-113 win over the defending champions. They erased a 19-point lead held by the Lakers to secure this comeback win.
However, Head Coach Steve Kerr is not very content with yesterday’s performance. He finds the win to be nice, but there were things he noticed, which need to be worked on.
The Dubs did enter as underdogs, and throughout most of the game, it felt like the result would favor the hosts. Some incredible 4th quarter performances got the Dubs a dub, but Kerr believes emotions might have been a big factor in the same.
“Need to work on fundamentals”: Steve Kerr tells Stephen Curry and co
The Warriors rode on their emotions to complete the 19 point comeback against LeBron James and his Lakers. The HC Steve Kerr believes this cannot happen every time. Kerr was on a video conference with reporters on Tuesday when he gave this quote.
“One of my messages to the team today was that you can’t rely on emotion for 82 games, or 72 games [this season], the season is too long and difficult to think that you can be sky-high emotionally every night.”
“Where this team needs to make improvement is in our fundamentals and our habits. You can rely on habits for a full season. You can’t rely on emotion, and this team needs to get better with our habits, with our details because there’s gonna be games where we’re fired up and sky high, and there’s gonna be games where we’re exhausted.”
