Steve Kerr may have that choir-boy look but he is intense. Remember, he got into a fist fight with Michael Jordan in practice. While at Arizona he angrily threw the ball back at former Oregon coach Don Monson after Monson zipped the ball at him with force during a 1988 game at McKale Center. That kind of competitor goes to the Final Four and wins five NBA titles.
NBA ref Joey Crawford wanted in on the Kerr-coaching phenomenon … right?
Kerr gets his 1st technical foul as a coach. Joey Crawford just welcomed him to the job.
This does not come as a surprise with how Sean Elliott, Anthony Cook, Tom Tolbert and Craig McMillan relied on Kerr to set up their shots.
Steph Curry said Steve Kerr told the team earlier this week that thru 3 games they were averaging 50 more passes per game than last season.
Solomon Hill’s name in a starting lineup after he hardly played as a rookie last year.
The #Pacers starting lineup at Washington: Donald Sloan C.J. Miles Solomon Hill Luis Scola Roy Hibbert
Kerr is already making history at Golden State
An interesting comparison of Hill and Paul George after their first five career starts. Both averaged 8.8 points but Hill has the rebounding edge (5.4 to 4.6) and shot slightly better from the field (45.5 to 42.5).
Hill’s career-high scoring production last night is only a start. Bound to get into 20-point range in some games soon.
