Thompson Credits Trying To Keep Up With Curry For Improvement In Offense

Jan 5, 2015 11:29 AM

Klay Thompson has become a more dynamic scorer this season and he credits playing alongside Stephen Curry for the development.

“Trying to chase Steph,” said Thompson about his scoring. “That’s how you stay hungry. Try to do what he does. I can’t do that. I don’t think anyone on this planet can.”

Thompson has attacked off the dribble and scored in the paint more this season. There have seemingly been more elements of Curry's game in Thompson.

“The ability to put the ball on the floor and make plays as opposed to just being a scorer, that’s the best thing for him and [for] us as a team,” Curry says. “He’s almost impossible to guard if he can do that. I don’t know what clicked, whether it was just the confidence that he can make a play in traffic and get where he wants on the floor  it’s pretty cool to see.”

Kerr Wants Warriors To Be Preemptive In Avoiding Playoff Pain

Dec 28, 2014 11:31 AM

The Golden State Warriors ended their losing streak, but were a little out of sync in their win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

One of the Warriors' main issues has been turnovers.

"I think our team has poor habits that we're trying to solve, that we're trying to get better with," Steve Kerr said. "The history of the league is good teams kind of have to go through playoff pain before they really get it, before they take that next step. I want to be pre-emptive.

"I want our guys to understand that we're good enough now to play with anybody. Our record shows that. Let's get rid of those bad habits now and not have to sit here in May and wonder, 'Gosh, if I hadn't just made seven careless plays. ...' "
