Kevon Looney says Warriors have yet to play their best game

Kevon Looney, Warriors

The Golden State Warriors head into Game 5 of their Western Conference Semifinal series against the Houston Rockets having yet to put together a full 48 minutes worthy of their endless potential. Big man Kevon Looney isn’t rattled, despite losing the past two games at the Toyota Center, noting there is another level his team can hit:

“The good news is, we haven’t played our best game yet,” said Looney, according to Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle. “We know we can play better, and it’s tied 2-2.”

The Warriors have enjoyed great scoring nights from Kevin Durant along with excellent play from Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala, but their star backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson has yet to get it clicking.

With two beasts of this caliber still dormant, there is reason to believe it won’t be long before they wake up with a big game, which could turn the tide of the series in the Warriors’ favor.

Looney, who played a pivotal part in the Warriors’ first-round series against the LA Clippers, has been okay at best, totaling 17 points through four games against the Rockets.

Just like they will need collective big nights from Curry and Thompson to top the Rockets, the Warriors could very well use a better effort from Looney, now that the bench has looked depleted in the last two games.

The Warriors currently have the home-court advantage, and a Game 5 win would put the Rockets on the brink of elimination.
