Steve Kerr, “If I Had Any Guts I’d Sit Everybody vs Spurs”


The NBA’s two best teams will go head to head Saturday night, the 62-6 Golden State Warriors head  take on the 58-10 San Antonio Spurs.Steve Kerr the head coach of the Golden State Warriors considered resting his star players, but he decided against it, per Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle

“If I had any guts, I’d sit everybody,” Kerr said Friday after revealing that center Andrew Bogut “probably won’t play.” Bogut suffered a strained toe against the Dallas Mavericks on Friday.

The Warriors will be playing for the second straight night on Saturday. It will also mark their ninth game in 14 days. They are only 10 wins from tying the record of 1996 Chicago Bulls’ all-time mark of 72 wins in a regular season.

Considering or even thinking about resting Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson wouldn’t sit well with basketball fans who want to see the Bulls’ record fall.

Thinking both teams play their stars, this will be a great matchup. The Spurs are 34-0 at home this season. If the Warriors grind out a win on the road, it would prove to the league that the Spurs can be beaten at the AT&T Center.

Golden State already defeated the Spurs 120-90 at Oracle Arena in their first matchup. Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said after the game that “it was like men and boys out there.”

After Saturday night’s game, the Warriors and Spurs will play twice more in a three-game span beginning on April 7. Coach Kerr will have to find the right balance of going for the NBA record (and the Western Conference’s top seed) while also trying to keep his players fresh and good for the playoffs. This should be a great showdown tonight and a preview of the Western Conference Finals.
