Steph Curry has broken a lot of ground during his time in Oakland but the young guard, who holds the record for 3-point shots made in a season and was the first Golden State Warrior in decades to start the NBA All-Star Game, doesn’t hold any bragging rights over Head Coach Mark Jackson.
The Warriors (31-22), who talked about contending for the Western Conference title in training camp, are tied for the final playoff spot entering the All-Star break.
“I want us to believe that if we do what we’re supposed to do, it’s going to be a lot of fun around here,” Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. “And my message to them is: `Make it happen.’ … Don’t talk about it. Go handle it.”
The Golden State Warriors picked up the option on Jackson’s contract for the 2014-15 season on Wednesday. While both sides could still work out a long-term extension this summer, exercising the option at least ensures Jackson won’t enter the upcoming season with an expiring contract.
The turnaround has taken place. The total transformation might not be far away. That was the message from Warriors general manager Bob Myers and coach Mark Jackson.
The Warriors face the San Antonio Spurs in Oakland Thursday night, down 3-2 in the best of seven series.
Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson placed a prominent poem by an unknown author in every player’s locker before Game 4 against the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday that had a simple title: Don’t Quit.
The Golden State Warriors forced overtime and then played strong defense to beat the San Antonio Spurs 97-87 Sunday and even the NBA playoff series at 2-2.
Golden State coach Mark Jackson was fined $25,000 by the NBA on Thursday for making public comments in an attempt to influence the officiating in the Warriors’ playoff series with Denver.
Mark Jackson said what he said, and there’s no taking it back now. Whether you agree or disagree, the goal has been accomplished: All eyes will be on Stephen Curry in Game 6 between the Golden State Warriors and Denver Nuggets.
