Steve Kerr explains Steph Curry’s new rotation plan with Warriors

The Warriors will be using Steph Curry a little differently for the foreseeable future.

Coach Steve Kerr has been tinkering with Steph’s minutes and usage plan recently, and it seems as if they’ve come to a solution. Scoring 37 points in the Warriors’ 117-99 winover the Brooklyn Nets Tuesday night at Barclays Center would support that.

For years under Kerr, Steph has played the entire first and third quarters while splitting time in the second and fourth quarters. From here on out, that will change.

“We have a pattern now that we settled on,” Kerr said. “Basically, we are going to take Steph out in the middle of every quarter for a few minutes. He always liked to play the first and the third and then sit the first six minutes of the second and fourth, that’s what we’ve done for years. We asked him to think about changing that this year, and of course Steph is always open to anything, so accommodating as a player, even though it probably took him outof his rhythm the first few games.”

Curry had a couple of bad shooting nights in the first week or two of the season, and Kerr believes that the rotation experiment may have played a role. His new rotation schedule will allow him to settle in and be available to hit big shots when the team needs them most.

“He’s gotten used to it, and what I like about it is that it allows him to start and finish every quarter. He’s so good at the end of quarters, 2-for-1’s, half-court shots. We saw him make one in Charlotte the other night. Starting every quarter is important too. Starting the second and fourth, I think is really good for this particular group that we have. I think it’s working well so far.”

2022 NBA Preseason Injury Update For Grizzlies Star As The List Of Players That Won’t Be Available Tonight Revealed

Given the nature of Morant’s injury, surgery was not required. Multiple weeks of rest were suggested and it has been nearly 4 months since he’s played NBA basketball. When looking at the injury reports for the Grizzlies, Ja Morant does not show up on CBS Sport’s list. 

Jaren Jackson Jr, Danny Green, and Killian Tille are the 3 Grizzlies who are expected to be out for the preseason. When it comes to the Murray State, you can expect him to play against the Bucks. He’s even given his opinion on this 2022 NBA Preseason, saying:

“We take preseason as out training camp. Even though we got games coming up, there’s still time for us to install some things, time to get better in certain areas, and continue to grow in areas that we’re good at.” 

Looks like the former Rookie of the Year is more than amped up to take to the floor following an unceremonious exit from last season’s Playoffs.

Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies were quite the surprise team during the 2021-22 NBA season. Finishing with the second best record in a loaded Western Conference and snagging 56 wins, they would not only make the Playoffs but have home court advantage in it.

Lakers held an open scrimmage on Saturday and the only player to sit out was Anthony Davis as teammate LeBron James showed off his athleticism with some massive dunks.

Davis, 29, practiced ahead of the team’s preseason opener Monday against the Sacramento Kings but missed the open scrimmage.

He told the media afterwards that he did participate in the closed door scrimmage and played alongside Russell Westbrook and King James on the purple team.

Lakers head coach Darvin Ham said it’s possible that James, Davis and Westbrook will get some minutes in the preseason opener.

While Westbrook will likely still run the floor, Coach Ham has a plethora of options to start at the point guard position.

Kencrick Nunn looks like he will become the team’s starting point guard ahead of Dennis Schroeder.

Despite Nunn missing all of last season due to injury, Schroeder has yet to arrive in Los Angeles due to some issues with his visa.

Steph Curry proves he’s still the ‘petty king’ once again as he shades ESPN model

Earlier this week, ESPN came out with a model that predicts the Warriors will struggle to an eighth seed in the Western Conference and have to compete in the play-in tournament.

Never afraid to show his petty side, Curry commented on an Instagram post about the projection.

“14% chance to win the finals last year too,” he commented, in reference to an earlier ESPN prediction, which had given the Boston Celtics an 86% chance of winning the 2021-22 NBA Finals. The Warriors, of course, defeated the Celtics in six games.

In ESPN’s defense, lead analyst Kevin Pelton was quick to disavow the projection as soon as it was made public.

“I expect Golden State to outperform this projection and be back near the top of the West,” Pelton wrote about his own projection.

After winning it all last season, Curry gleefully called out everyone from the Boston bar that gave out “Ayesha Curry can’t cook” shirts to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, who slighted the Warriors for their payroll, to noted Draymond Green nemesis Kendrick Perkins.

“We hear all of that. You carry it all and try to maintain your purpose, not let it distract you, but you carry that weight,” Curry said about his revenge spree. “And then you get here, and it all comes out.”

If Curry takes inspiration from being doubted, then the ESPN model, which thinks the Warriors will essentially be a .500 team, is just the thing to get the reigning NBA Finals MVP ready for the upcoming season.

The Warriors’ title defense begins later this month when they host the Los Angeles Lakers at Chase Center on Oct. 18.
