Steve Kerr says Golden State’s approach now business-like
Steve Kerr took on a daunting task when he took over a young Golden State Warriors team in 2014, but now, four years deep into this project, he’s managed to have his players laser-focused when it counts the most.
Nothing will stand the test of his coaching like putting the Cleveland Cavaliers away mercilessly, taking a final game on the road, already sporting a 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals for the second straight postseason.
“I’m really pleased with our maturity,” said Steve Kerr, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic. “Our experience from the last few years has shown up in these Finals.”
Kerr said that it used to be “chaotic” on this stage, but now his team has had a “business-like” approach to being at this stage, largely expected to come out of this series with their third title in the last four seasons.
The Warriors aren’t fighting for just another piece of hardware, they’re fighting for their very own place in history, climbing the ranks among the all-time great teams in NBA history.
Golden State has indeed taking care of business thus far, putting the Cavs at the verge of elimination — only this time they will be expected to finish the job in a clean sweep after failing to do so last year — the only damper in what was a near-perfect postseason run.
