“Got a really good feeling about what’s ahead”—Steve Kerr shows extreme optimism regarding Warriors’ play-in chances

The Golden State Warriors had a roller-coaster ride in the regular season, but they are well poised for a post-season run. With a 123-116 win over the Utah Jazz on Sunday, they ended their regular season and are heading toward the play-ins. At a time like this, the faith of their head coach, Steve Kerr, is the fuel that the franchise needs to gear up their engines.

In the post-game interview on Sunday night, Kerr spoke about the efforts put in by the players both on and off the court, which helped the team gain back the confidence they had been lacking for a while. Showing immense optimism in the team, Kerr said, “I’ve got a really good feeling about what’s ahead. I think we still have a chance to do something special.”

There was a point when it seemed like the Warriors could lose their spot to a hungry Houston Rockets side, but they came back stronger at the end and clinched the final play-in spot in the West. Now the Dubs are set to face the Sacramento Kings in the play-in.

Warriors to face Kings in play-in tournament

The Warriors faced the Jazz without their leader Stephen Curry and defensive maestro Draymond Green and still managed to dominate the game with Klay Thompson’s veteran presence. However, the Kings are not easy competitors. The combined effort of the Warriors Big 3 is what the team needs to face the Sacramento Kings, who are striving to bag their first championship trophy.

The Kings’ offense, with De’Aaron Fox leading alongside Domantas Sabonis, who has shown his excellence this season, will be hard to hold for Draymond Green and his Warriors’ defense. Stephen Curry’s 3-pointers and brilliant passes are something Sacramento should look out for.

The Western teams have had a 2-2 record in their four meetings this season, but their scores will be finally settled on Tuesday where the Kings will welcome the GSW at Golden 1 Center.
