The Golden State Warriors have faced challenges this season, and there’s no sugarcoating it. Despite efforts to move forward, head coach Steve Kerr provided a candid assessment of the team’s grit and chemistry following a tough loss to the Dallas Mavericks.
“First of all, I love the guys on this team,” Kerr said. “We have a really good group. I think they have a good chemistry, they get along well, but we haven’t found that grit that every good team needs. Where you pull together and you just play for the group. We’re not there yet, and that’s a problem. We’ve got great guys, love every one of them, but until this team really connects in a way that is solely dedicated to winning each and every game, then we’re going to be stuck in this place. So, we need to get there.”
The Warriors showed promise with a five-game winning streak, notably during the Celtics game. However, the current three-game losing streak underscores the team’s apparent lack of grit, as highlighted by Steve Kerr. While Draymond Green’s absence may be a factor, the team previously managed a winning streak without him. The path to fixing the Warriors’ challenges this season is uncertain, but it’s clear they need to address issues promptly.
