Warriors’ coach Steve Kerr doesn’t think his team is in good enough shape to play against a great 48-minute team.
It seems that the Warriors’ trip to China two weeks ago has taken its toll on the Warriors who fought jet lag and limited practice time after getting back to Oakland. Kerr thought that his team looked tired and he admitted that the lack of conditioning become exposed once Draymond Green, who is a consistent source of energy, exited the game with a knee injury. The Warriors played without Andre Iguodala (back strain) while Omri Casspi only lasted four minutes before leaving the game due to a right ankle issue that forced him to miss a good portion of the preseason action.
