Steve Kerr says Warriors must complain less to the referees
Raise your hand if you have heard this before: Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr wants his players to complain less to the referees.
The Warriors were called for 24 personal fouls in Game 1 of the second round against the Houston Rockets on Sunday. Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala each had five fouls. Draymond Green picked up a technical foul as well:

Both the Warriors and Rockets were complaining to the referees all game long on Sunday. From a fan’s point of view, it made the game really ugly to watch, as players on both sides were arguing with the refs after every call, even when the foul call was blatant.
Kerr has said this exact quote multiple times this season, and yet the Warriors still argue with the refs. At some point, the players just need to focus on the game and not get rattled after each and every call. After all, the Warriors did win Game 1 and benefited from some calls as well.
Warriors star Kevin Durant continues his dominant stretch of play lately. The former MVP scored 35 points in Game 1. He was the only player on the Warriors to break 20 points. Curry notched only 18, as he was in foul trouble all night.
