In the second half Saturday against the Sixers, the Warriors were flat and blew a 19-point lead to a hustling team, almost losing the game. Harrison Barnes (from Draymond Green and Stephen Curry) saved the day. Then on Sunday, in Madison Square Garden, the Warriors kept playing sloppy ball and were down to the Knicks in the first quarter.
Steve Kerr had seen enough. The Warriors coach got mad and tried to motivate team and in the process broke the whiteboard he was holding. Klay Thompson broke it down.
Green clarified that Kerr broke the whiteboard, then threw it.
As Curry told Dan Patrick above, he thought it was funny.
It did work. The Warriors went on a 7-0 run in the second and played better, then went on a 9-1 run to open the second half and never looked back. The Warriors went on to win 116-95 behind Thompson’s 34 points.
