Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr knows his team isn’t playing up to their potential. That failure to perform may lead to some starting lineup changes until something clicks.
“The puzzle hasn’t fit this year,” Kerr said. “We’ve had a lot of guys playing well, but we may have to think about moving the starting lineup around from game to game depending on who we are facing. I’d still prefer to get something solid, but we haven’t established anything this year. We’re a quarter of a way through so there is a lot of thought that has to go into this.”
Kerr said that while he prefers an established starting group and rotation, he may need to change things up based on matchups. This might continue until the Warriors find some rhythm.
“Every night is going to be different with this team, that’s what I am figuring out,” Kerr said. “What we need each night seems to be different depending on the matchup, depending on how the game is going. It’s hard to predict what is going to happen each night, it’s also hard to play 10 to 11 guys. … We don’t have roster clarity in terms of who’s going to play every single night.”
