“Lack of Discipline Killed Us” Golden State Warriors Coach Steve Kerr Breaks Down the Tough Loss Against Atlanta Hawks

Steve Kerr

The Golden State Warriors have lost seven of their last eight games in the league. This type of abysmal form has not been associated with Steve Kerr and his men for many years now. Even the players are surprised and look clueless when they play against other teams.

This slump in recent form can be attributed to the lack of teamwork and necessary motivation. Apart from the veterans like Stephen Curry and Draymond Green, all the other players look tired and not exactly sure of what their role is on the court. All of these issues were visible in their most recent loss against the Atlanta Hawks.

Coach Steve Kerr expressed his displeasure regarding his team’s performance in the post-game press conference. He addressed the defensive frailties which were on display and admitted that necessary adjustments will have to be made.

When asked about the reasons behind their form, he said, Every night is a little bit different. We’ve had rebounding issues, we’ve had games where we had turnovers that hurt us. However, we have been consistently bad. It’s just extremely frustrating.”

He continued, It’s tough to see to watch a game like that. Our guys got after them, competed well, their energy was all good. But the lack of discipline killed us. We fouled way too much in this game. That is the bottom line.

It was a disappointing night for the Dubs as they were beaten in every aspect of the game. Apart from Stephen Curry and Kelly Oubre Jr. no one else stepped up to provide the necessary ammunition. In fact, it was quite a docile performance from them as they let the Hawks control the game on both ends of the court.

Clint Capela scored a valuable double-double for the Hawks which helped in tipping the scales in their favor. He finished the game with 24 points and also racked up 18 rebounds to his name.

The Golden State Warriors are currently 10th in the Western Conference standings. At the moment, they are out of the playoff qualification spots and their chances of qualifying look very slim. They are in desperate need of a turnaround if they wish to change the course of their season.
