Warriors coach Steve Kerr says the biggest adjustment for Game 4 is the emotional one
The Golden State Warriors lost Game 3 of their Western Conference Semifinal series against the Houston Rockets on Saturday night. Heading into Monday’s Game 4, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said the emotional adjustment will play a key role in whether they will win or not.
After Sunday’s practice, Kerr told reporters the Rockets outplayed the Warriors in Game 3, and there needs to be better fight over the course of the full game:
“The biggest adjustment is always the emotional one. The fight, the competitive spirit… it’s not that we didn’t play hard, we played hard for good stretches of that game but they outplayed us for 53 (min).”
The Warriors are known to bounce back strong after a loss, and they have shown that in these playoffs. If there’s any team that can adjust quickly, it’s them.
However, they will be facing a Rockets team riding a huge wave of momentum. Reigning MVP James Harden has been sensational over the past couple of games despite playing with an eye injury. Chris Paul, Eric Gordon, and P.J. Tucker have also been impressive in Game 3, and they will look to continue where they left off.
Both teams have given each other everything they could over the past three games, so at the end of the day, a key deciding factor in this series will be their desire to win.
