Warriors' Kerr bemoans lack of cohesiveness: 'We're not clicking'
The Golden State Warriors managed to eke out a 106-100 victory Sunday in the valley against the Phoenix Suns, though head coach Steve Kerr knows his players are frustrated at the team's getting-to-know-you phase.
"We were frustrated in the first half. You guys can all see it. This is not coming easily," Kerr said, according to ESPN.com's Chris Haynes. "We have a new team and a lot of different faces, but even for the returning guys, it's a different mix."
Though Golden State won Sunday, Phoenix converted the Warriors' 16 turnovers into 25 points. Additionally, the team's previous win came against an injury-riddled New Orleans Pelicans squad.
Outside of Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, the team shot 32 percent from the field.
Kerr said he's calling more plays than usual to enforce a sense of continuity, but the lack of cohesive play is evident.
"We're not clicking and everybody can see that," he said.
