When Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr first looked over the team's entire schedule before the regular started, he knew that his team's six-game road trip starting on Nov. 29 would be an extremely important stretch.

“You think, ‘If we can get through this stretch in a good position, then we’ll be in great shape,’ ” Kerr said.

According to an article written by Melissa Rohlin of Bay Area News Group, coach Kerr attributed Golden State's perfect 6-0 road trip to a few factors that included great team chemistry, a noticeable improvement in defensive tenacity and the contributions of All-Star power forward Draymond Green.

“Over this last road trip, to me, that’s when he really put it all together with the intensity defensively and the composure,” Kerr said of Green. “To me, right now, he’s exactly where he needs to be.”

He also said that Green did not get off to nearly as well of a start to the season as he anticipated, but Kerr feels that his star forward has finally found his groove as of late.

“I thought the first seven games, he was a little scattered emotionally,” Kerr said. “I thought he was too emotional.”

Although he missed the Warriors' 101-87 win over the Charlotte Hornets last week with a shoulder injury, Green put up some pretty good numbers on both offense and defense. In the five games he played on the road trip, Green averaged a respectable 10.4 points on 19-of-41 shooting, 9.6 assists, 7.4 rebounds, 2.8 steals and 1.8 blocked shots per game.

The Warriors (21-6) will finally return home tonight to Oracle Arena when they host the Portland Trail Blazers (13-12) at 7:30 p.m. PT.
