Steve Kerr, Draymond Green agree that Warriors haven’t reached their ‘peak’ yet

OAKLAND — In the wake of the Golden State Warriors’ 126-91 flattening of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Draymond Green insisted that the team still has room for growth.

“I think we were really good,” Green said after shoot around on Wednesday morning. “I still don’t think we’ve really reached our peak. I don’t think that’s it. There were still some things that we could have done better — that I know. We were really good. I’m not saying that we weren’t. I thought we were amazing those first three quarters especially. But I don’t know if I would quite say that’s [our peak], but that a very high-level [game].”

Several hours later, during Steve Kerr’s pre game press conference before the Warriors hosted the Oklahoma City Thunder, the head coach offered an identical message.

“I know that we can get better,” Kerr said. “Even last game, as well as we played in that first half, I thought we had some really poor stretches in the second half. So, it’s still a challenge to put it all together for four quarters, to be more consistent.”

Kerr went on to add that he thinks it’s actually a good thing that the Dubs have not yet fully gelled at the midpoint — unlike a season ago.

“I thought all and all, last year, at this point we were like a finished product and we were destroying teams and playing four quarters,” Kerr said. “We had probably already peaked, which, obviously we don’t want to do that quite yet and this year I think there’s more room for growth — a higher ceiling. So, we’re excited about that.”
