Golden State Warriors Quick Hitters

The Golden State Warriors, according to Basketball Reference,  lead the NBA in 3 point field goals attempted and made. This should be of no surprise to any coach that follows the NBA because Steph Curry and Klay Thompson lead the NBA in 3 point field goals made this season at number 1 and 2 respectively. In addition, Curry has already broken his own NBA record for number of 3 point field goals made in a season as well as his record for consecutive number of games with at least one made 3 point field goal.

Ok. So what?

While the rest of the NBA is trying to play catch-up to the flow and style of the Golden State Warriors, Wes Kosel has put together five quick hitting actions from Steve Kerr. What makes these plays even more special is the fact that 3 out of the 5 plays feature players besides Curry and Thompson for isolations, post ups, and drives. The other two sets feature a popular action in all levels of the game, the elevator screen, and how the Warriors utilize this action to get their shooters open. Shooters that are accurate at a historical pace. These plays are for any level of coach, and, at a minimum, should be reviewed in case an opponent decides to use them against you.

Here are five quick hitters from the Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr. Kerr has led the Warriors (with the help of Luke Walton) to a 55-6 record this season. The Warriors are undefeated at home, 32-4 in conference play, and 13-1 in division play.  They lead the NBA in 3-point field goal percentage (41.2%), assists (29.2/game), and points (115.1/game). Kerr has the Warriors moving the ball well and with so many offensive weapons on the floor they have proven themselves a hard team to beat.
