Steve Kerr gets brutally honest on Stephen Curry, Warriors getting thrashed vs. Bucks

Stephen Curry Steve Kerr Warriors

The Golden State Warriors have played uncharacteristically lackluster basketball in their last five games.

Aside from their lone win over the Cleveland Cavaliers fueled by the return of Klay Thompson, the Warriors have been beaten handily by their other four opponents.

Head coach Steve Kerr, however, remains unbothered by the slump that Stephen Curry and the Warriors find themselves in. According to him, it’s all part of the breaks of the regular season.

Via Anthony Slater of The Athletic:

“To be honest, I’m not that concerned,” said the Warriors coach after their latest loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. “I know we just got our butt’s kicked, but we’re just in a rough patch in our season. It happens to every team, every year pretty much with very few exceptions and we’re in a little bit of a rut. We played a team that was ready and played a great, great first half. We’re a little out of sorts and we just got to get back on track.”

The Warriors were manhandled by Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks, falling behind by as much as 39 points. Golden State never led in the contest. Asked about what the team needs to do to turn things around, Kerr kept things simple:

“It starts with defense. You know, we gave up 70 in the first half. It’s impossible to win a game and to get an offensive rhythm if you’re taking the ball out of the net every play.”

Stephen Curry and Co. will eventually find their footing once more sooner or later. Their team is just too talented not to. But while they continue to work out the kinks, the Warriors should at least take this as a stern reminder that there’s a lot of work to be done if they want to raise the Larry O’Brien Trophy come June.
