Steve Kerr was asked whether he would like to see Stephen Curry shoot more three-pointers as the Golden State Warriors try to figure out how to play without Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant.
“I don’t know that it’s that simple,” Kerr said. “We could turn him into James Harden and give him the ball every play. That’s really hard to do and you have to build a team for that. Houston has put five shooters on the floor for years now with Harden to give him that space. We don’t have that kind of personnel, so there’s not the same spacing. And that kind of basketball wears you out, too. Especially for a guy who’s 180 pounds like Steph is. So I don’t think the answer is just to run a million high screens. We don’t really have the personnel for that. And I don’t think it makes a ton of sense from Steph’s standpoint.”
Kerr was asked the question before the Warriors defeated the New Orleans Pelicans by a final score of 134-123. Curry had 26 points while D’Angelo Russell added 24.
