Steve Kerr blasts Warriors' effort in blowout; Kevin Durant disagrees

Last June, the Golden State Warriors became NBA Champs for the second time in three years, but unlike the first time around, the majority of the team did not like who was in office and most had no intentions of visiting the White House. "We've got to challenge ourselves". IN led by 20 points, 97-77, heading into the third and won by the same margin, 126-106.

"I'm embarrassed", Kerr told reporters (via the East Bay Times).

Following the 126-106 road loss, Steve Kerr was rather heated and blasted his team for a "pathetic" effort, saying that they did not care.

However, Kevin Durant, who led the Warriors with 27 points, disagreed with Kerr's assessment. Golden State wound up 13-2. A 3-pointer by Westbrook put the Thunder up 81-80.

Golden State turned the ball over 16 times and left Pacers' Bojan Bogdanovic wide open beyond the arc where he knocked down six of seven shots en route to 28 points. Oladipo extended his streak of consecutive games with a steal to 62 in the fourth quarter. They played a better basketball game than us. It's the sixth longest streak in league history. A spot shooter for most of the season, Bogdanovic has been more committed to driving the lane and using the baseline to score. Then he will be re-evaluated, the team said in a statement. He was released from a hospital Sunday after preliminary tests showed no structural damage or problems with his nervous system.

McCaw was taken away on a stretcher after he fell to the court following a foul by Sacramento's Vince Carter in the Warriors' 112-96 win. Additional exams revealed no neurological damage, but he didn't make the trip to Indianapolis.

"I think people are starting to take notice, but we still ain't got nobody's respect yet", said Turner. "It's no "my bads" or I get the next one, so these four games are critical and us playing extremely hard and having a rhythm and understanding, our confidence has to be at an all-time high going into next week". He made 15 of 26 field goals and 11 of 12 free throws and had six assists.

Instrumental to the Pacers' scoring success was Bogdanovic, who has diversified his offensive game.
