Warriors head coach Steve Kerr say’s Golden State’s struggles nearly landed him in trouble with his wife at home

The Golden State Warriors struggles nearly landed head coach Steve Kerr in trouble at home with his wife.

Following the Warriors 124-123 loss to the Sacramento Kings, when shooting guard Malik Monk hit a game winning shot after Golden State blew a 24-point lead, Kerr had a rough night sleeping.

Kerr told KNBR that his wife’s message to him following the sleepless night was for him to save that for the playoffs.

‘I’ll tell you what happened; I got home from Sacramento, I’m up for a while, I’m thinking about everything, I get into bed, and [I’m] tossing and turning,’ Kerr told KNBR.

‘It’s probably two o’clock in the morning, and Margot wakes up and goes, ‘Jesus, it’s only November. Would you just relax?’ And I’m like, ‘What are you talking about?’ And she goes, ‘All I can hear are these heavy sighs, tossing and turning, just go to sleep.’

The Warriors are currently 9-10 and have and have won three of their last 11 games after starting the season 6-2.

Their struggles on the court have also been compounded by availability issues of several key players, most notably four-time All-Star Draymond Green.

Green was suspended five games after putting Minnesota Timberwolves in a head lock. He also picked up a technical foul when he returned against the Kings that spurred San Antonio’s monumental comeback.

‘[It’s] disappointing because Draymond, he drives a lot of our results,’ Kerr told 95.7 The Game in a separate interview during the week.

‘He’s a very powerful figure and he knows that and he and I have talked about that. But he has to harness that power.’

‘I was disappointed last night that he got that tech, reaction to the foul afterward because the momentum really swung in Sacramento’s favor after that. So, he’s got to be better, and he knows that.’

The Warriors were also dealt recent injury issues following the torn calf suffered by key rotational player Gary Payton II and the lower leg nerve injury picked up by 12-time All-Star Chris Paul.
