The day after his team suffered its first home loss of the season and first regular-season home defeat in 54 games, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that chasing records and the subsequent media attention have had an impact on his squad’s recent play.
“I think they want the [wins] record,” Kerr said of his players Saturday after practice. “But I think what they probably realize is maybe all the talk and all the focus on the record has gotten us away from the process of who we are.”
After Friday night’s 109-106 loss to the visiting Boston Celtics, Golden State (68-8) needs to go 5-1 the rest of the way to set the NBA single-season mark of 73 wins.
