Steve Kerr Lets Warriors Coach Themselves In Blowout Win Over Suns


It's an exhausting stretch both physically and mentally for athletes.

Steve Kerr's decision to allow the Warriors to coach themselves during Monday's win over the Suns predictably became one of the biggest stories in the National Basketball Association. Kevin Durant had 17 as Golden State won its 12th straight in the series, its longest active streak against any team.

Update: The Suns eventually lost by 46, adding to their season of misery.

Kerr, 52, owns a 251-52 record in more than three seasons as the Warriors' head coach.

Is the betting total for tonight's Phoenix Suns and Golden State Warriors matchup at 10:30 p.m. ET set too high? But maybe Kerr is onto something here.

Kerr said that letting his players coach in Monday's 129-83 win over the Phoenix Suns was not that big a deal, but said "it's the world we live in so everyone is going to debate it and whether it's a controversy or not it has to become one I guess". But we don't control them. "Nah, I didn't have a problem with what Steve did". "It had everything to do with me trying to reach my team".

"It's their team, I think that's one of the first things you have to consider as a coach". It's a game we need to win. "Coach Stotts lets me call a lot of plays throughout the game, anyway". Kerr insisted he did it simply to change up things in midseason.

"You can play great defense and they're still going to make shots - they're that good". It happened when Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard demanded coach Stan Van Gundy's departure in 2012. Ty Lue, the coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, was asked whether he would do something similar.

The crash was deadlier than any bus accident in Hong Kong since one in 2003 that killed 21 people . The driver has been arrested on charges of causing death and grievous bodily harm by risky driving.

For the meantime, Lue will test his coaching acumen again this Tuesday night, when the Cavs take on Russell Westbrook and the rest of the Oklahoma City Thunder at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

"It felt like the last month or so, I've been dealing with a lot on and off the court..." Though, Lue's take is probably the most genius of them all thus far.

It was the clubs' first meeting this season.

Kerr told Triano that he wanted his team to hear from a new voice and that he was sick of his own. Draw up the plays, give the motivation speeches, everything that coaches traditionally do during timeouts.

Here are a couple of things I enjoyed in sports this week. "They have to take ownership of it". On Monday, she captured the gold medal for halfpipe with a stunning score of 98.25.

Takeaway: There are many ways to empower employees. "I thought about a play".
