Warriors vs. Suns on Monday night

During a timeout midway through the first quarter, Kerr gave his clipboard and pen to veteran Andre Iguodala.

Granted, the Warriors at 70% are still one of the best teams in the National Basketball Association, but after going just 3-3 in their previous six games, including a slew of slow starts for the team, head coach Steve Kerr wanted to do something to help his team get out of the rut. So Kerr made a decision to shake things up and let his team do the coaching against the lowly Phoenix Suns, one of the league's worst teams.

Kerr realized a change was necessary, that the team needed to evolve somehow to get his players engaged. If so, you have to find a way to reach them emotionally.

Stephen Curry scored 10 of his team-high 22 points in the second quarter yesterday morning (Singapore time), helping the Golden State Warriors overcome an early deficit en route to a 129-83 thumping of the Phoenix Suns in Oakland. This is their first meeting since April 5th 2017, a game Golden State won by the score of 120-111 (Warriors clinch West, extend win streak to 13).

"I told them the other night, after the last game, that we were going to do it. I think it will only improve as well as he understands who can do different things and where to be". I thought about a play and then I forgot the second option and had two guys in the wrong place on the board.

Despite the Warriors and Suns playing in the Pacific Division together, this will be just the first of four times the two teams have played each other all season. Draw up the plays, give the motivation speeches, everything that coaches traditionally do during timeouts.

Steve Kerr tried some next-level coaching on Monday.

Phoenix (18-40) has lost 11 of its past 12. "It had to do with me trying to reach my team". The Warriors are essentially a self-driving vehicle at this point.

Warriors: Green sat with a sprained left index finger but is expected back Wednesday. Their weakest areas are steals per game (#29), three point percentage (#29) and field goal percentage (#27).

The trick worked. The Warriors ran away with the game and looked much like their old, dominant selves.

"I think (Payton) is definitely a tryout, I don't think he's a rental", ESPN NBA analyst Amin Elhassan said on 98.7 FM Arizona Sports Station's Bickley and Marotta Monday. "I just feel like when we're focused, we are really tough to beat".
