Move over, Steve Kerr: Coach Draymond Green helps Warriors rout Suns
14 February, 2018, 19:27 | Author: Joan Malone
The disease of more- and the the lethargy that comes with three consecutive NBA Finals- was afflicting this team. They rely too much on their managers, on rules and processes, or on what's worked in the past-instead of using their smarts to find real solutions.
OAKLAND Even as he has shattered coaching records, Warriors Steve Kerr has always maintained his success stems from having talented players.
The Warriors won for the 25th consecutive time this season when scoring 120 or more points. Draw up the plays, give the motivation speeches, everything that coaches traditionally do during timeouts. I like where our team is. "They are exhausted of my voice". It's been a long haul these last three years. "I just feel like when we're focused, we are really tough to beat". You can also provide the freedom and psychological safety they need to express dissenting opinions.
The Suns came into Monday's game tied with the third-worst winning percentage in the National Basketball Association. Their offense had slowed, the defense was performing well below the high standard they hold themselves to, and turnover totals were often through the roof. On Monday night, that dip sank even further.
Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said he would never hand over his huddle to players. He considered last night a teachable moment. Whatever coach you are, you have to do what you have to do to build your team up. "It's not your team, it's not (general manager) Bob Myers' team, it's not (majority owner) Joe Lacob's team - although I'm not going to tell Joe that - it's the players' team, it's their team". As coaches, our job is to nudge them in the right direction and guide them, but we don't control them.
Was Kerr's decision disrespectful or was he simply preparing the Warriors for the playoffs when they will have to make huge decisions on their own in the clutch? The Cavaliers just traded half their team to shake things up after a horrific slide over the past month.
A good night-that's one way to put it.
The NBA season can be a slog for players and coaches alike, especially leading up to the All-Star Break, which begins later this week. First it was Andre Iguodala. Part of the math on choosing this game is, we are playing the Suns.
Green himself (sprained finger) didn't play in the game.
And it wasn't only Iguodala who took on coaching duties.
"Draymond is very special human being", said Omri Casspi, who started in Green's place.
In addition to going through the workout Paige also spoke with Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, who noted that the G2 products are helping him as he continues to work his way back from the season-ending knee injury he suffered in early November. "He knows the game better than anybody I've been around". Then, David West was the head coach during the next timeout.
"I noticed their plays were a little better out of timeout tonight", Triano told ESPN jokingly.
"Let's not get carried away; I like it here", Kerr said. Green eventually became comfortable enough to approach Kerr and ask him for the clipboard. Dudley thought the move showed to some extent the respect afforded to the 18-40 Suns.
