Steve Kerr feels ‘great’ about Warriors despite Game 5 loss
If you’re hoping to see a look of panic on the face of the Golden State Warriors, you won’t find it from Steve Kerr.
The Warriors head coach was full of confidence on Thursday night despite losing Game 5 98-94 to the Houston Rockets.
“I feel great about where we are right now,” Kerr said after the game. “I may sound crazy, but I feel it. I know exactly what I’m seeing out there. And we defended them beautifully tonight. Just too many turnovers, too many reaches. If we settle down a little bit, we’ll be in great shape.”
That’s exactly what the Warriors need from their leader. If their head coach is showing no signs of panic and expresses confidence, that should help their players keep the proper mentality. And why should he feel any other way? This team has won two of the last three championships and proven they can get it done.
Game 6 of the series will be on Saturday at Oracle Arena. If the Warriors win that, they would return to Houston for a decisive Game 7. The injury statuses of Andre Iguodala and Chris Paul, who got hurt late in Game 5, will be huge factors moving forward.
