Is the betting total for tonight’s Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors matchup at 10:30 p.m. ET set too high?
This game will present no problems for the Warriors, even though they aren’t playing at their best at the moment.
But this move by Kerr is especially brilliant, and provides valuable takeaways for anyone leading a team.
The plan started early, with the Warriors in a timeout in the first quarter and Kerr handing off the clipboard to Golden State’s elder statesman Andre Iguodala. Iguodala then led the huddle and drew up a play, while Kerr and his assistants stood off to the side.
Following 19 points, nine assists, and six rebounds in his debut for the Suns, Elfrid Payton was once again a breath of fresh air for the franchise.
For them to turn a legitimate National Basketball Association game into a joke is exactly what the National Basketball Association should be fearful of.
Instead, all of the intrigue centered on who would lead the huddles. So did Curry, who almost drew a delay-of-game warning for taking too long in a timeout.
Green eventually took the most predominant role. Green is a two-time NBA Champion and the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, and Curry is a two-time league MVP and one of the scariest offensive players in the history of the game. Green started calling plays from the sidelines.
Kerr was able to reach his players because he knows their strengths and weaknesses, along with what makes them tick.
Yet over the last five games, the Magic have shot up to 12th (105.2) in this category.
“You can look at it two ways: You can say anybody can coach that team, or you can say it’s a (good method)”, Booker told Haynes.
Kerr, 52, owns a 251-52 record in more than three seasons as the Warriors’ head coach.
Update: The Suns eventually lost by 46, adding to their season of misery.
The Warriors interacted with the officials. Both changed the Warriors’ and Celtics’ culture and on-court mentality, in the process making each team elite in a very short time span.
Either the Warriors players are already really good coaches or Daniels was sort of correct, since the Warriors blew out the Suns 129-83. I feel very comfortable.
West showed an amused smile over all the platitudes.
On Saturday February 10, in a 123-113 loss to the Denver Nuggets, Payton played his first game in purple, and he was feeling it.
“Obviously we thought highly of him in the draft and we said the thing about him and Emmanuel Mudiay and other guards who got traded at the trade deadline, ‘once he gets a jump shot the game will really open up for him, ‘” Elhassan said. Raymond continues to point that out every single day.
