POSTGAME VIDEO

The tunnel was hilarious because of the MVP chants for Curry and the security guard, in her New York accent, pleading for the crowd to go home 😂

Here’s Kerr on the defense vs Kevin Durant, particularly by Green, and the defense in general, especially having thrown a triangle-and-two set:

Here’s Kerr saying there’s never been a player who’s had on-ball AND off-ball dominance like Steph:

And Kerr with an update on Klay Thompson and James Wiseman:

Here’s KD and Nash on Steph:

KEEP CHECKING BACK FOR MORE VIDEOS AS THE POST, AND THEY WILL CONTINUE TO BE POSTED ON THROUGH TOMORROW AS I WILL GO LIVE FROM BARCLAYS BY 1:30AM EST. There’s still a lot left from Wiggs, Dray and Steph.

Btw here are notes & quotes from Steve Kerr pregame (scroll past these for the postgame video, plus below this are pregame notes from Steve Nash):

KERR PREGAME

Jokes about the chair in room listing to the right

So far: “We’ve been a good two-way team…revolving offensively…we’re still in the early stages of everything though…nearly every guy on the roster is capable of helping…in some ways it’s an even bigger challenge for me because I’ve gotta find the right combinations and keep people happy, we’ve got a lot of mouths to feed…”

Too big of a game to judge? “…identity…win or lose tonight I don’t think it’s gonna change my mind about who we are (but) measuring stick…I’m thrilled to be here…fun atmosphere…get on the bus and there will be 68 more games.”

GP: “limited in practice yesterday. He should be good to go.”

Inaudible: “probably three or four”

Defending KD: says who

KD: “he looks good to me…I don’t think you can even tell that he had an injury given his mobility, his speed, his explosion…fundamentals, shooting in either direction…he’s a complete player.”

GSW this year vs KD: “we shoot way more threes…at the time what we were doing was seen as being out of the box…the rest of the league has gotten faster (and) shooting threes…player advancement and collaboration. Steph and Draymond, that was the first time they played together…also shot selection has changed. Back then we didn’t embrace half court shots…everybody’s pulling up from the logo…I’ve learned as a coach, just enjoy it (laughs).”

Harden? “GP will guard James Harden, he’ll guard (others).”

Nets: “they’re loaded. Two of the best basketball players on Earth, two of the best all-time…well-coached group…”

What is a tough shot (for KD): “there is no tough shot for Kevin. Honestly that’s what makes Kevin special…he gets to shoot whatever shot he wants and basically he gets to decide whether it goes in or not…you can’t really dictate a possession with Kevin…even with some All-Star players…Kevin is seven feet tall…impossible to guard.” 🚨

NASH PREGAME (occurred before Kerr’s)

Believe in momentum after big win and successful road trip? “Momentum is a tricky subject. Confidence is maybe a better indicator or determinant…it was a solid trip…apply ourselves the appropriate way…it’s not always about wins and losses…we have a big challenge tonight.”

Patty maybe starting for Joe Harris? “He’ll definitely have an opportunity to play more. We’re down a shooter…”

Harris ankle: “He is gonna probably miss a few games…”

Changes in use of timeouts: “I haven’t noticed a difference (laughs). Maybe I’m no better.”

GSW offense evolution, Kerr, personnel: “…goes without saying that Steph is one of the greatest of all time and Draymond…they have such an identity…understanding of what their mission is offensively and there’s no conflicting sources out there.”

How important is this game? “…It’s a marker in this moment in time…that’s not permanent…”

Defense instead of offense now: “…a group a week or two into training camp that is no longer (the same)… team historically that’s been (great on offense and now working in defense)…relentless with our willingness to stick with that plan…don’t have the overwhelming offensive talent…that’s just the nature of our challenge. It’s a fun one…trying to find that identity…”

Scoring at rim is down: “…we’re trying to play quicker as far as not letting the defense get set…getting into the second action…can’t just walk down the court…that gravity that Kyrie would bring (is gone)…third action if necessary…decisions on the fly and that’ll be our way of getting into the paint more often.”

Replacing Joe Harris: “yeah we can’t replace it…Patty can’t just take all his minutes and Patty’s minutes…Joe’s ability to shoot with very little space…get the ball inside…”

Injury question on a player

Kyrie update: “I don’t have a grade on Joe’s ankle. I stay in touch with Kyrie but we don’t really talk about basketball.”
