Warriors head coach Steve Kerr always has jokes ready for reporters – even after a wild finish to a frustrating 111-110 loss to the Grizzlies in Memphis. Both Steph Curry and Kevin Durant were ejected.
Curry was tossed for throwing his mouthpiece toward a ref and Durant was thrown out for something he said to a ref.
“I think he should be suspended eight, maybe 10 games. It was egregious. It was awful,” Kerr said super sarcastically when asked if he’s worried about Curry being suspended for his actions. “It was a danger to thousands of people in the stands.”
That smile Kerr cracked at the end of his answer was pretty good. He’s not worried. The season has barely started.
Here’s the incident that led to Curry’s ejection:
On a more serious note, Kerr then blamed himself for his team’s struggles.
“I think it’s more just the way things are going. We’re obviously not ready. I’m not doing a great job putting together combinations, finding the right motivation to get guys going, to get some joy and some laughter in here. It’s just one of those rough patches, and hopefully we can climb our way out of it. I’m sure we will. It may take some time.”
The Warriors’ next game is against the Mavericks in Dallas on Monday.
