Steve Kerr slams Warriors for their blowout loss vs Pacers

Quinn Cook

Bojan Bogdanovic shot a blistering 83 percent from the floor (11-of-13, including 6-of-7 from 3), finishing with 28 points.

The Warriors' poor form in the last month has coincided with the absence of star guard Stephen Curry, who has played just once since twisting his right ankle against the San Antonio Spurs on March 9. "We've just got to continue to keep getting better".

"I think we're doing a great job and we're ready for the playoffs".

With the victory, IN became the first team to earn a season sweep over Golden State since Kerr became head coach.

The Warriors will look to get back to winning ways when they host the New Orleans Pelicans later this week on Saturday at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, which will be their last home game of the regular season before the playoffs. The Sixers aren't merely the NBA's hottest team (12 consecutive wins and counting), they're also its second-most efficient since the All-Star break (plus-10.0 net rating). "We defended at a high level and any time we do that, we will be successful", Oladipo said.

The Warriors were swept by an Eastern Conference team for the first time since Charlotte did it in 2013-14. They only have one player clearing 14 points per game-rookie Donovan Mitchell, who's just a mediocre shooter from the field (43.7 percent) and outside (33.8).

Kerr was not having any excuses, as he added: "Yeah, I'm embarrassed". I mean I know this game doesn't mean anything in the seeding.

The Pacers shot 53.8 percent while limiting Golden State to 44.6 percent shooting. They earned their sixth win in seven games and their second in nine days over Golden State. It's an embarrassing effort and a pathetic effort.

The Warriors' joyful forward chuckled over a reporter joking he would have a "flu game" the way Michael Jordan famously did in Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz.

Pacers: Have five wins this season against last year's National Basketball Association finalists - two over the defending champs and three over runner-up Cleveland. The Jazz's post-All-Star break defensive rating is a minuscule 96.7, 4.7 points lower per 100 possessions than Boston's league-leading mark of 101.4. "I thought our guys responded well to the challenge".

IN pulled out to a 52-42 lead late in the second quarter, made it 62-51 at halftime and led by 21 during the third quarter before Golden State opened the fourth with 10 straight points to cut the deficit to 97-87.
