Kerr on Opener Loss: ‘I didn’t have them ready to play’

It was an inauspicious start, about as bad a beginning as a team could have. Fans thronged to Oracle Arena in anticipation of a party, a carnival to ring in a new, glorious era, or at the very least make them forget the last time a meaningful game happened in these haunts. Instead, the Golden State Warriors got demolished by an older, staid operation, losing to the San Antonio Spurs 129-100 on Tuesday night.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr shouldered some blame.

“I didn’t have them ready to play, obviously,” he said. “We came out of the blocks, we missed some easy shots, but I never worry about missed shots, it’s more about loose balls and a second or third effort.”

With the Cavaliers’ franchise-record-tying 13-game winning streak ending with a 106-102 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Friday night, the biggest disappointment in Cleveland’s postgame locker room stemmed from news that weather issues would delay the team flight home, not the defeat.

If anything, the loss provided Cleveland a chance to reflect on the team it has become in the last 3 ½ weeks, going from a 5-7 record to holding the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
