Steve Kerr: Warriors will refocus vs. Spurs after slump down stretch

8:13 PM ET

OAKLAND, Calif. — For all their dominance in recent seasons, the Golden State Warriors struggled mightily down the stretch of the regular season, finishing with six losses in their last 10 games and 10 losses in their last 17 overall.

But with their postseason quest toward a fourth consecutive Finals appearance, and potentially their third championship in four years, beginning Saturday during Game 1 of their first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said their poor play over the last month was tied to his team having locked into the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference standings, one spot behind Houston.

“I think part of the problem the last month is we’ve been locked into the two seed,” Kerr said Friday during an appearance on ESPN’s The Jump. “Obviously, we’ve had a lot of injuries, but the games have not been meaningful, and our play and our focus reflected that. The games are about to get extremely meaningful, as we know. I know our guys. I know how competitive they are.
