02, February 07 Today, the Warriors defeated the Thunder 141-114 in the NBA regular season.
After the game, Warriors coach Kerr accepted an interview with reporters.
A reporter asked: “At some moments in the fourth quarter, the starters are usually not allowed to play again, but it seems that you are still thinking about when to use the bench players. Is it difficult to make such a decision?”
Cole replied: “In this era, a 20-point difference may be gone in a blink of an eye, because of the three-pointer. Therefore, you can’t mess around on the court. We are still looking for the lineup and rotation without Stephen.
To get us going and make sure we’re ready for Portland and the games after that.”
Later, a reporter asked: “You said that you are optimistic. What does it mean to you to achieve this big victory without Stephen?”
Cole replied: “There is no doubt that it has increased our confidence. Seeing the performance of the team without him, as well as some outstanding individual performances, you can feel that everyone feels good. I hope we can continue to move forward.”
