Kevin Durant refutes Kerr's notion that Warriors did not care

Paul George says the Thunder have'to do a better job of helping Russ

Golden State's defensive effort was certainly lackluster as IN shot 53.8 percent from the field and 51.7 percent from beyond the arc.

So unpredictable that Las Vegas wouldn't even publish the odds when the schedule came out in August.

But it was the play of the Indiana Pacers on Thursday night that looked more like a team laden with All-Stars. They are the flawless example of why season predictions are flat-out silly. They didn't know. Well, majority anyways.

New to the USA Men's National Team pool are Booker, McCollum, Middleton, Thomas, and Turner. They rebounded well. But I think we care. He finished with 21 points, seven assists and six rebounds.

"We wanted to be able to control the narrative around the celebration and conversation of us winning a championship. And that's what we're focused on". Golden State wound up 13-2.

Pacers coach Nate McMillan did not duck the idea that the Pacers were playing the "real" Warriors.

By the time the end of the first half rolled around, IN had an 11-point lead, 62-51. No Curry, no Durant, no Thompson, no Green.

This game was different. "We still have room to get better, especially going into the playoffs".

"We're still shorthanded in different ways. Caring in general was the main problem", Kerr said when asked if the Warriors' defense was the problem. "We have four All-Stars". However, Kevin Durant did not agree with Kerr's assessment of the team's struggles. But it took him 23 shots.

The Indiana Pacers have played the toughest schedule in the National Basketball Association the past couple of weeks. Bogey led all scorers with 28 on an efficient 11-of-12 shooting.

The Pacers shot better than the high-scoring Warriors inside and outside the 3-point line. "I thought our guys responded well to the challenge".

Golden State's head coach made his feelings known about his player's performance after the game, as he said to Chris Haynes of ESPN that his team's effort against IN was pathetic. They have already locked up the second overall seed in the Western Conference.

"Just was trying to win, '" Durant said.

Kerr was not having any excuses, as he added: "Yeah, I'm embarrassed". It was an embarrassing effort. "But right now, who knows?"

The Pacers, meanwhile, are in a nice groove. There was no point in risking injury. This may be a group that lacks big-game experience together, but they aren't playing like it. Victor Oladipo took over late before sitting out the final seven minutes of the game.

If he does it in the first round with Steph Curry still healing, it could be an early exit for the Warriors this season. Why would they be, though? Maybe they are [tired]. Soon they will try to carry the good mojo into the playoffs.

"We're the underdog in every matchup", Oladipo said. "But it's just one win". We've got to be better. "This year's minicamp is an opportunity for us to continue and expand the culture, brotherhood and camaraderie that has been built".
