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.”
