Steve Kerr feels Warriors ‘were in a rush offensively all night’ in Game 4 loss to Rockets
After the Golden State Warriors fell to the Houston Rockets in Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals, Warriors coach Steve Kerr criticized his team’s offensive output. Usually, the Warriors are the perfect model of an NBA offense. Kerr felt they were out of sync in Game 4, per NBA TV:
“We played plenty hard enough, but I think that the force has to be accompanied by poise. I felt like we were in a rush offensively all night. And we’re at our best when we have a bunch of playmakers out there, and we’re attacking with the idea of getting great shots.”
Looking at the box score, it seems like the Warriors did a decent job. Stephen Curry scored 30 points on 12-25 shooting, and Kevin Durant one-upped him with 34 on 12-22.
However, the tape shows that Kerr is correct. Whether it was the Rockets’ defense or just an off night for the Warriors, the offensive looks didn’t seem up to par with what the team usually gets.
Klay Thompson continued to struggle in the series, going 5-of-15 from the field. Even though Curry shot well overall, he only made 4-of-14 shots from beyond the arc, which is way below what is expected from the best shooter of all time. Golden State went 8-of-33 on 3-pointers.
So far, both teams have done their jobs and defended their home court. Game 5 will be pivotal, and Kerr is certain to make some adjustments to let his offense regain its mojo.
