Tyronn Lue has flawless response to Steve Kerr letting his players coach

The Warriors players ran their own huddles against the Suns The Warriors players ran their own huddles against the Suns

Iguodala then led the huddle and drew up a play, while Kerr and his assistants stood off to the side.

This story has been updated with quotes and post-game material from the Warriors' locker room at Oracle Arena.

The Warriors (43-13) will look for their third straight win without All-Star forward Draymond Green, who will sit out Monday's game with a sprained index finger.

"I think it's exactly what I expected", Kerr said of the challenge of keeping his team engaged. It's not my team, it's not (general manager) Bob Myers' team, it's not (owner) Joe Lacob's team although I'm not going to tell Joe that.

"I don't know", Kerr said, when asked what he thought of the job they did. We haven't played well the last few weeks but we don't want to be peaking now anyway.

"I was disgusting, actually", he said. "I actually got a delay of game coming out of halftime because I was scrambling".

One game after his coach stole the spotlight by reaching a milestone, the Warriors' Curry has a chance to move up the National Basketball Association charts in an unusual category.

As the leader of a team, what would you do if you felt you were losing control?

At the same time, the USA deficit is growing and would be bumped up even more by the Senate budget deal, if it passes Congress. The fragile rebound lifted the market a bit, and the Dow and S&P 500 are now about 8% off their from all-time highs.


"It just means that I inherited a hell of a team with an wonderful, talented group of players", Kerr reflected. They're exhausted of my voice.

And while playing the Suns helped revitalize the Warriors defense it also did wonders for a couple struggling players. Casspi played 27 minutes, scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds.

The Suns, at least, addressed one of their many deficiencies at last week's trade deadline when they swapped a second round pick (Memphis') for point guard Elfrid Payton. I put a lot of effort into spacing the floor more and shooting more 3's.

"I'll just wait and see how my body feels and how my mind feels". They got outscored by 3.7 points per 100 possessions over that stretch, which was well below the league average.

But the Warriors haven't been their completely dominant selves as of late.

If Kerr is going to pull a stunt where he is so confident his team is going to destroy the competition, why should the fans even bother?

Hopefully, this injury will not keep Green out for any more games than just tonight's contest. Warren finished with thirty-one points, two assists and five rebounds with 1 turnover in 42 minutes.

While it is understandable Kerr chose to take the night partially off for a 46-point stomping of the Suns, the way he did it was a black eye on the league. And Kerr has said in a half-joking, half serious manner that he would like the Warriors front office to lock up West for a three-year extension.
