Warriors coach Steve Kerr likes idea of a week off

The Golden State Warriors will be off for at least eight days before Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals.

Kerr says week off gives Warriors time to reflect on season

After getting a clearer handle on how he’ll schedule the week, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Monday that he values the time off and the chance it gives his team to reflect on such a historic regular season. The Warriors had a short, crisp practice Monday, mostly skill work and shooting. “Anytime you have a weeklong break, it means you’re still in the playoffs and you probably just handled your business pretty well,” Kerr said. The Warriors also will take some time this week to look back on their 67-win regular season. Kerr won the 2014-15 Rudy Tomjanovich Award, which honors...

NEW ORLEANS -- Four down, 12 to go.It's safe to think that way now, even say it aloud. The Warriors may not ever get that coveted 16th win.

Figures and facts from Warriors-Pelicans Game 4

Warriors’ Andrew Bogut in line for $1.9 milion bonus

NEW ORLEANS — Warriors center Andrew Bogut played more than 65 regular-season games and is expected to make one of the NBA’s All-Defensive teams this month. The bonus would count against the Warriors’ salary cap, but team officials say it wouldn’t push the number into the luxury tax. Bogut isn’t really into numbers, and he certainly isn’t into the NBA image. Power forward David Lee was active for Saturday’s Game 4 and available in an emergency situation (which didn’t arise) after missing the first three playoff games with a sore lower back. Memphis played Portland late...

Pelicans fan behind Warriors bench attempts playful head games

Pelicans fan behind Warriors bench attempts playful head games NEW ORLEANS — Chris Trew wears over-sized glasses that cover just about every part of his face that isn’t obscured by a bushy brown beard. Sitting behind the opponent’s bench during New Orleans home games, Trew tries to make players’ minds stray from the game and often does so by drawing on his background as a standup and improv comedian. Trew said the Warriors are one of the top teams at joining in with his playful banter, and it was never more evident than when the team was at the Smoothie King Center earlier this...
