Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has plenty of reasons to be happy right now with his side the clear leaders in the Western Conference having won eleven games in a row.
One would think blowing out the Lakers at the Staples Center and avenging one of their two early season losses would have made him happy too.
The 109-85 victory left a bad taste in the 2016 Coach of the Year's mouth, and not because of Stephen Curry's hilarious attempt at dunking with nobody around him.
“It was one of the worst basketball games I’ve seen in my life,” Kerr said, per Baxter Holmes of ESPN. “We were awful, and they were awful, the people who bought tickets should get their money back honestly. I’m not trying to make a joke. It was a horrible basketball game.”
So why was it so bad?
“I don’t know, everyone had too much turkey last night,” Kerr said. “Neither team practiced. They were without half their team…at least they had an excuse. We were pretty bad but we got the win and will move on. Hopefully we’ll play better tomorrow.
And they did. The Dubs beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 115-102 and if they are awful now, we're excited to see them when they are good.
